Isn't that the newest one at the western end of the field where Boeing will be doing the P2F B737 conversions?

I was there a couple of weeks back the hangar is where you mentioned and has a massive Boeing sign on it from memory

What is P2F conversion - B738F conversions?

P2F = Passenger to Freighter

Sounds good

Wish Boeing would build a hangar at Norwich!

The conversion line has not been set up yet. They perform regular maintenance in the hangar currently with many 737s and 787s having passed though since opening a couple of years ago. The BBJ here now will not be converted to a freighter.
