Those who pay close attention to flight tracking apps may have noticed that, what appears to be a China Southern Airlines Boeing 737 MAX, has been flying around in the region since September last year.
All is not quite as it looks however, because upon closer inspection it seems to be a case of mistaken identity. Since the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX in March 2019, no airline has been allowed to operate scheduled passenger flights using the type, which is why it was unusual to see one flying around the skies of China every day.
The aircraft in question is B-1205 (c/n 63253), a two-year-old airframe delivered to China Southern in November 2017.
