Airport transfer van in Adelaide to replace plane with a jet engine
Airport transfer vans are coming to the South Australian capital to replace the jet engine used in the new 737 MAX planes.
Airport officials say the van will replace the plane used for the new MAX planes when it is completed.
It is the first time in more than 30 years that a passenger jet engine has been replaced on a commercial jet.
The airport has about 50 737 MAXs in service.
This is the airport’s first time replacing an aircraft’s engine with one of its own.
But it is not the only airport to have an aircraft engine in service as part of a transport upgrade.
Earlier this year, the airport began work on a new fleet of 737 MAX trains, which is expected to arrive in the next few weeks.
