Boeing has build and delivered it’s 4000th 737-NG series aircraft this week to China Southern Airlines.

Now, 4000 737-NG’s… that’s a lot of frames buzzing around the world in various different configurations (including the  -600 Series, -700, 700ER, -800, -900 and 900ER… and then there’s the militarised and business variants… )

The gap between 1000th, 2000th, 3000th and now the 4000th bird is shrinking as Boeing has increased production of 737′s to 42 planes a month.

The 737-NG series has won more than 6,600 orders. With the 4000th plane delivered, a backlog of over 2,600 orders exists. This is as Boeing ramps up development on the 737-MAX series.

The new 737-700 for China Southern will feature the new Boeing Sky Interior (787 and 777 inspired), configured in a 2 class configuration with seating for 126 passenger.
