The last Boeing 737 Max 8 in the skies

Written by on March 14, 2019

The final Max 8 plane still flying landed in Halifax in Nova Scotia, Canada, around eight hours ago, according to popular aircraft-tracking site FlightRadar24.

It was an Air Canada flight from San Francisco that took off shortly before President Trump announced that the U.S. would be grounding all Boeing Max jets.

Today, the world’s skies are completely empty of the jet that, just three and a half years ago, Boeing said would take the 737 model “to the next level of performance.”
Whether and when the Max series will fly again remains to be seen — you can read about the jet’s maiden flight in 2016 here.
