Boeing and its suppliers have had a busy second quarter.
The company delivered 169 commercial airplanes to customers in April, May and June for a total of 306 planes delivered so far this year.
Deliveries included 116 Boeing 737s in the quarter, six 747s, eight 767s, 23 777s and 16 787 Dreamliners.
Boeing took orders for 570 jetliners in the second quarter, giving it a multi-year backlog of 4,757 orders for commercial planes.
That includes 3,445 orders for 737s, including 1,431 orders or the 737 Max, an upgraded 737 with new engines.
Sales and deliveries are important to Wichita’s Spirit AeroSystems, which builds parts of all Boeing commercial planes.
