Around 100 airplane fuselages bound for Boeing’s 737 Max production facility sit in storage at their top supplier, Spirit AeroSystems Holdings Inc, in Wichita, Kansas, United States. A few days ago, Boeing announced the suspension of its 737 MAX production starting in January 2020. Reason for the suspension is the (re-)certification of the aircraft moving into 2020.

In September 2019, Boeing stored 100 of its undelivered 737 MAX aeroplanes at the Grant County Airport while it awaits clearance from the FAA and other aviation regulators to return the jet to commercial service.
