I was with her in Glasgow, Mo. While on remote testing. She has since been refurbished, decals removed (returned to her type certificate, production configuration). AA took delivery of her 11/20/2012. She's now in revenue service registered as N897NN, at a gate or in the air somewhere around the world........

Hope this helps!

Thanks Kevin, I realized it wouldn't have been in commercial service due to the Experimental designation of the AC. Interesting nonetheless, do you work with Boeing? Looking forward to seeing the MAX in the air...
