Everyone has had a parking spot taken from them. Normally it's not by a 90,000-pound jet.
That's the problem Boeing employees at the company's Renton, Wash. factory are dealing with as the aircraft manufacturer tries to figure out where to put 100 of its grounded 737 Max planes.
Aerial footage from Seattle's King 5 news shows dozens of planes cozying up next to Toyota Priuses and SUVs in an employee parking lot as Boeing works to get them back in the air.
Some of the planes are factory fresh, not able to be delivered to their destinations since the Federal Aviation Administration grounded the 737 Max jets in mid-March following two deadly crashes of the popular aircraft over five months.
While the company works to get the planes re-certified by the FAA, the parked planes have found a fan base on Twitter and Instagram where photos showcase the massive scale of the planes and the grounding.
"We are using resources across the Boeing enterprise during the pause in 737 MAX deliveries, including our facilities in Puget Sound, Boeing San Antonio and at Moses Lake," said Paul Bergman, a Boeing spokesperson.
There is still no clear date for when the 737 Max will return to the skies. Many carriers have removed them from their flight schedules through September and into October.
