Factory time lapse

Watching a Boeing airplane being built inside one of our factories is always an impressive sight. But seeing one assembled from start to finish is truly must-see t.v.


The first 787-9 for British Airways arrives at London Heathrow.

We put together the time lapse video below for British Airways to document its first 787-9 going through the Everett factory. The airplane, which arrived today at London Heathrow, is the first of 22 787-9s the airline will receive. Enjoy!

How Boeing has revolutionized air travel is for everyone to imagine. All others have been followers or replicators. Want to see an eight minute version. This is so informative. But it gets ahead before one has a hang of whats going on. My kid would love to see this masterpiece of engineering.

Amazing time lapse video building the Dreamliner for British Airways. I really enjoyed it. It just reminds me of the visit to Boeing last year watching the production line. Boeing, Truely makes great airlines for the world!
