While Airbus and Boeing will again hog the spotlight at the Paris Air Show with their battle for ever-larger slices of the lucrative pie in the sky, a lot of the really interesting stuff will be going on elsewhere at next week's massive biennial aviation and defense industry gathering.
The 737 Max 10 is five-and-a-half feet longer than the Max 9, raising its capacity from about 178 to between 190 and 230 passengers.

The Max 10 is the fifth member of Boeing's family of single-aisle aircraft and the third model launched in as many years.

BOC Aviation announces memorandum of understanding for 10 737 MAX 10 jets worth about $1.25 billion at list prices.
