Boeing 737 MAX-9 ecoDemonstrator

The first thing I saw on the static display at Dubai Air Show the other weekend was Alaska Airlines B737 MAX 9 ecoDemonstrator (my photos below).


It apparently passed through here London Stansted from DBX.

In case anyone else is wondering, here's the somewhat underwhelming list of the 737-9 ecoDemonstrator programme features:

A fire extinguishing agent is being tested in partnership with Meggitt PLC to replace Halon 1301 due to its ozone-depleting properties.

The ecoDemonstrator program is helping the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration measure greenhouse gas levels to help improve its climate modeling.

Using recycled carbon fiber for cabin sidewalls reduces waste going to landfills and can potentially make cabins quieter.

A low-profile anti-collision light made by Hanwha Systems is being tested for its ability to improve maintenance reliability and efficiency from reduced drag.

Every ecoDemonstrator program uses sustainable aviation fuel to reduce CO2 emissions.

The engine nacelle has been modified to reduce current engine noise and address the different noise footprint of next-generation jet engines.

Halon products (fire bottles) are being gradually phased out per EASA rules anyway. Thatís hardly ground breaking stuff.

Some cool feature is some onboard AI-connected-camera watching the ground handling and automatically concluding how far it progressed telling it to the ops center in the process.
