    Apparently due to 737 Max's not being delivered but still being built, Boeing has run out of space to park them so they are now parking them in the employee lot. 2019-06-25_9-31-22.jpg

    Geez, from the thread title I thought they'd stopped making Delta launch vehicles.

    I was wondering how they get the badge to the scanner to open the arm doohickey. Maybe a selfie stick out the cockpit window?

    Good ole plywood, park your jet on that in the car parking lot and hope the weight doesn't break through the ply and the tires sink into the asphalt....

    The orange stuff looks to be a material similar to whats used under crane outriggers, its pretty thick and very strong.

    Had gone to a favorite watering hole in Phoenix one afternoon and parked my motorcycle in a typical space. Came out later to find the bike had fallen over due to the kickstand having dug into the asphalt throwing the CG off to one side. So I went back in and had another one.

    I'm wondering whose more peeved: the employee who's put out by the appropriation of said parking spaces, or the employee who built the plane, only see it as a reminder each & every day' delay..

    (and yeah: And who gets the shady spot under the wing..)

    It’s the Seattle area. Park under the wing to get out of the rain not to avoid the sun.

    Yabbut we're about the enter the dry season. After July 4*, we can expect 2 months of nearly dry weather, highs in the 70s and 80s, low humidity, and 14-16 hours of daylight. July and August are what the locals live for.

    * For some reason, it often rains on July 4. July 5 is usually great, though.

    Only on the west side of Washington....the East side lives for Oct-Nov and March-April, the rest is either hotter than the hubs of hell or colder than a well diggers butt...

    OK, fair. In my defense, MClark was talking about Seattle. :p I think Boeing is storing some 737s out in Moses Lake, though. They are going to have the mother of all delivery nightmares getting all of these planes delivered once they get their certificates. There'll be planes screaming out of Boeing Field all day and night.

    I was referring to the Renton Facility.
    I lived a few miles from there in the 60's. Seattle was a far different place then. Last year I went back, first time since we left in 1968. I think I will wait another 50 years before going again.

    Here is an update, a video taken at Renton showing all the 737's waiting for delivery or in final assembly phases.
