You clearly did more than what I did, which was look at the specs of the MAX/NG on Wiki

Thanks Mark

Bonza has reportedly taken up 8 x Maxs that were initially destined for LOT.

Note: The BONZA rudder.

Reportedly stored at VCV, paint stripped at VCV and flown back to BFI yesterday

This is the first Max mentioned earlier

737-8 MAX, Bonza, , N5515X (MSN 60388/7591)

If you zoom the image the rego is N5515X with ULT on the nosewheel door.

The second for Bonzo is reportedly

737-8 MAX, Bonza, , N1786B/SP-LVO (MSN 62533/7722)

This is the second Greg with UJT written on the gear door, not ULT, ln7591 is a different aircraft currently in rework , N5515X is assigned to numerous aircraft and hasn’t flown since Jun30, and as tweeted “ SPOTTED* future VH-UJT — the very first fully painted Bonza 737-8! Both this guy and the one I posted a couple weeks ago are registered N5515X, but the bare metal one (still sitting here at BFI) is former SP-LVE, while this one is former SP-LVO. What a beaut!”

LN 7722 May well end up being first in due course as they don’t seem to by in a hurry with LN7591 now it has issues.
