Boeing 737-200 Survivors

The Boeing 737-200 was the second variant in the famous 737 family. The 737-200 was a lengthened version of the 737-100, the first installment of the 737 family.

The 737-200 took its maiden flight on 8 August 1967 and was first certified by the FAA on 21 December 1967. 

The 737-200 was widely used thanks to it being a lengthened version of the 737-100. This meant that it can be found everywhere from Germany to New York to Bangkok. 

Long before the 737 MAX was grounded, so was the 737-200. In fact, the 737-200 is one of the most dangerous aircraft on the planet, having had 68 crashes since it first flew. 

However, if you live in the UK or the US, it’s probably going to be difficult for you to to see 737-200 in action. Despite this, there are several on display throughout the country. 

 

Over 50 years later, there are a surprising number of -200s still in use.

 

Here’s our list of Boeing 737-200 survivors. We’ll try to keep it updated, so why not bookmark and check back often! And if you have any updates, please let us know!

Where to see 737-200s in action

Air Inuit 737-200

As you can see there are several -200s still in action, however, these are mostly in the developing world or as cargo aircraft. 

Perhaps the best place for people in the US to see a 737-200 is the Las Vegas Nellis Air Force Base. Despite it being a militarized version, the T-43 is still a -200 at heart and still looks as it did in the 1960s. 

Otherwise, your best bet is to go to Kuujjuaq Airport, where Air Inuit is based. Air Inuit runs regularly scheduled cargo flights into and out of Kuujjuaq Airport.

Can I fly on a 737-200?

Despite its age, you can actually fly on a -200! 

There are several air charter companies in the US, Canada and UK who offer charter flights. If you want to get the airline experience, you will probably have to travel to South America or one of the Congos. 

The 737-200 has been phased out in favor of newer 737 variants. The last commercial flight of the 737-200 with Aloha Airlines was in March 2008.

You list “C-GGUL” as the wreckage of a 737-200 stored at Eindhoven in the Netherlands… This is a DHC7?!!!! However, 737-200 with the Line Number 1023 is the former N320DL and is stored at Trois-Rivieres, QC in Canada…

Thanks Peter. We looked into this and there was some confusion. C-GGUL is actually the current registration of ln 1023 (N320DL), and is active. The former C-GGUL DHC7 was at Eindhoven for a while. It has been corrected in the list!
