Jeritilley A picture is worth a thousand words..

Commercial success, the 737 aircraft – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…..” If you do not fight for what you want, then do not cry for what you lost”.

” A dream is not what you see in your sleep, it is the thing that does not let you sleep”.

Another aircraft photo for the picture today, and a 737 of Caribbean Airlines.   The 737 has proved to be an extremely popular aircraft, and was the first aircraft to receive more than 10 000 orders.   Sales have risen to over 11 150 aircraft.  The newer versions of this aircraft, the 737 NG (next generation) are as wide as they are long, so it is known as the ‘square aircraft’.    Each 737 NG has around 67 km of wire inside it, and an estimated total of 600 000 parts in each aircraft.  It takes around 189 litres of paint to paint an average 737, the paint alone adding an extra 113 kg to the weight of the aircraft.   The aircraft has sold so well that on average, there are 2000 737s in the air at any given time, and one 737 takes off or lands every 2 seconds.  And to buy one… around USD 93 million.
