In the dead of winter, the 737 MAX was the life of the party in Siberia. Boeing Test & Evaluation teams sought out one of the coldest passenger airports in the world to put the airplane to the test under harsh winter conditions. They’re out to prove that the airplane will perform as intended, no matter the weather. In temperatures approaching 40 below zero, flight testers discovered why the 737 MAX improves upon the most reliable jetliner ever built. Watch this video to see how the airplane and the test team weathered the deepfreeze.
