The first plane to roll off its assembly line at the massive, airport-like plant in Zhoushan in east China's Zhejiang province will be a 737 Max, the latest variant of Boeing's best-selling narrow-body series.
The Zhoushan facility is officially known as Boeing 737 Completion and Delivery Center, jointly owned by the US aviation giant and the state-owned Commercial Aircraft Corp of China.
