Oh, yeah, because taking off vertically in a Boeing 737 MAX is such a possibility for most of us.
In a video released Tuesday, the aircraft manufacturer shows off the maneuvering capabilities of the 737 MAX, a narrow body jetliner being developed to succeed the older 737s with which many of us are more familiar.
The 737 MAX will “fly farther, increase revenue and provide the lowest seat mile cost of any airplane in its class,” Boeing claims. “The airplane will open new markets and provide exceptional performance for high elevation airports and opens new opportunities for low cost carrier airlines.”
