Boeing on Tuesday released the 2016 737 MAX Flight Demonstration video at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh. The video highlights the MAX’s handling characteristics, short field takeoff capability and high-banking turns.

The video was captured in Moses Lake, Wash., as Capts. Mike Bryan, Greg McCann and Chris Dobb, Boeing test pilots, practiced the flight demonstration performed at the Farnborough International Airshow earlier this month.

The 737 MAX incorporates the latest technology CFM International LEAP-1B engines, Advanced Technology winglets and other improvements to deliver the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market.

The new single-aisle airplane will deliver 20 percent lower fuel use than the first Next-Generation 737s and the lowest operating costs in its class – 8 percent per seat less than its nearest competitor. To date, the 737 MAX has accumulated 3,266 orders from 68 customers.
