Launched at the 2017 Paris Air Show, the Boeing 737 MAX 10 is a stretched version of– Boeing 737 MAX 9. Being almost identical to other Boeing models in most aspects, the new airliner has one very special feature.

The 230-seater single-aisle MAX 10 has a stretched fuselage, 66 inches longer than MAX 9 and shares many similarities with other 737 MAX family aircraft. In fact, it is 90% to 95% (by build of and design accordingly) identical to previous models, including CFM International LEAP-1B engines, Advanced Technology winglets, Boeing Sky Interior, large flight deck displays, etc.

The firm configuration of Boeing 737 MAX10 is completed and the aircraft is now moving into the detailed design phase prior to the start of production, the company announced on February 6, 2018, at the Singapore Airshow.

However, the model has one unique feature other Boeing models do not have − the landing gear. According to Boeing, the landing gear “has two key features that are critical for the longer design of the MAX 10: A lever that allows the landing gear to grow taller upon takeoff, and a shrinking mechanism that helps the gear retract to fit into the existing wheel well”.
