Boeing has started production of the first 737 MAX fuselage stringers at Boeing Fabrication Integrated AeroStructures in Auburn, Wash. Stringers run the length of the fuselage structure giving it stability and strength.

06:22 EDTBACFM launches next phase of testing for LEAP engine
CFM International's LEAP engine took the skies for the first time on October 6 on a modified 747 flying testbed at GE Aviation Flight Test Operations in Victorville, California, launching the next phase of testing for the advanced engine program. The engine behaved well and completed multiple aeromechnical test points at various altitudes during the nearly three-hour first flight. Over the next several weeks, the engine will complete a comprehensive test schedule that will gauge engine operability, stall margin, performance, and acoustics. The LEAP-1A/-1C variants are on track for engine certification in 2015. The total program, which encompasses all three LEAP engine variants, includes 28 ground and CFM flight test engines, along with a total of 32 flight test engines for Airbus (EADSY), Boeing (BA), and COMAC. Although all three LEAP engine variants will fly on the modified testbed, the configuration currently being tested is a fully integrated propulsion system. CFM is a joint venture between GE (GE) and France's Safran. Reference Link
