In a move that’s turning heads in the aviation sector, Boeing has just dropped the bombshell of a transformative overhaul for the MD-90 aircraft, paving the way for NASA’s X-66 Sustainable Flight Demonstrator (SFD).

This ain’t just a facelift; it’s a gutsy attempt to bring aviation greenhouse gas emissions down to a big fat zero.

Buckle up, folks; we’re about to take a ride through Boeing’s war zone of sustainability.

Boeing’s Tactical Tweaks

Boeing’s got its sights set on sustainability, and they’re making strategic moves on the MD-90, the workhorse responsible for almost half of the planet’s aviation emissions.

The plan involves ripping out engines and throwing in some high-tech 3D metrology scans.

Those scans? They’re like intelligence reports, providing the data Boeing needs to create a 3D blueprint that blends the old MD-90 with the shiny new X-66 components.
