Watch Boeing Build A Plane For Southwest

This time-lapse video of a Boeing manufacturing facility is pretty awesome, if you’re into watching “how it’s made” type stuff or if you like to see sped-up footage of people. I recommend keeping the volume down and making up your own sound effects starting at 1:03, when employees begin to test everything on the plane.

I also recommend turning it off before you get to the 2:00 mark, because that’s about when it becomes clear that Boeing is painting the plane to look like a cheap cigar. Unfortunately YouTube has decided to ruin the surprise with its placeholder thumbnail, but believe me it’s even worse in motion.
