*The global Boeing 737 Max fleet has been grounded since March 13 in response to
the crashes of Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET302 and Lion Air Flight JT610.

*Boeing has suspended customer deliveries of the 737 Max, but production of the
plane has continued at a pace of 42 aircraft a month.

*As a result, Boeing's storage lots are packed with undelivered 737 Max
aircraft.

The global Boeing 737 Max fleet has been grounded since March 13 in response to
the crashes of Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET302 and Lion Air Flight JT610.

Along with the grounding, Boeing also suspended customer deliveries of the 737
Max. However, the company did not shut down the Renton, Washington, factory
where the 737 is assembled.

Before the March 10 crash in Ethiopia, Boeing had been producing the 737 at a
rate of 52 aircraft a month with plans to ratchet production up to 57 planes by
the end of the year.

In fact, production continued unabated for nearly a month after the crash, until
Boeing announced plans to slash the rate from 52 planes a month to 42 planes a
month.

As a result, Boeing is storing the undelivered in various locations around the
Puget Sound, a company spokesman told Business Insider.

Even with the production slowdown, the number of undelivered aircraft sitting in
and around Boeing's production facilities is beginning to swell.

The planes are sitting in storage lots at the Renton factory; at the Paine Field
next to Boeing's Everett, Washington, factory; and at the company's Seattle
Delivery Center at Boeing Field.

Aerial photos of the facilities appear to show that space is filling up.

It's unclear when the 737 Max will be able to resume service. American Airlines
and Southwest Airlines have both pulled the plane from its schedule until
mid-August, and United has pulled the plane from flights through early July.

Boeing is working on a software update to fix the 737 Max's troubled
flight-control system. According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA),
the agency is expecting Boeing's final proposed fix in the coming weeks.
