Video: Cool Time-Lapse Assembly of a Boeing Dreamliner

Watch a Boeing 787 being constructed in only 4 minutes.

The first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner for the British Airways recently landed at London’s Heathrow Airport to join the BA fleet. In honor of the Dreamliner’s arrival, the airline released a stunning time-lapse video that goes behind the scenes at Boeing’s factory where the wide-body airliner is made.

In only 4 minutes, the video shows us in super speed the Dreamliner’s assembly from beginning to end — from the parts of the plane being shipped by a massive 747 Dreamlifter to the finishing British Airways paint job.

The 787-9 is 20 feet longer than its 787-8 predecessor and will start flying for British Airways to Delhi, Abu Dhabi, Muscat, Kuala Lumpur and Austin, Texas.
