See A Boeing 737 Take Form, From Shell To Flight
Sep 5, 2015
It's a shame, because when you get a behind the scenes look at the construction of an airplane these engineering marvels become even more impressive. This time lapse showing the construction of a Boeing 737-800 takes you through the entire process, from an empty shell of a plane until the moment it takes off on its first flight. Weeks of work are condensed down to a quick three minutes, showcasing the hundreds of workers required to ensure you have a safe flight.
It takes hundreds of hours of travel, construction, and detailing to build an airplane. With the stresses of travel we usually don't ever contemplate the complicated process of constructing these powerful machines. We just sit down, take off, and land without giving it a moments notice.
