Painting A Boeing 747 Is A Jumbo Job

Painting A Boeing 747

When you see a large get it’s not terribly hard to appreciate it’s size. It’s not that hard to appreciate the amount of power needed to get it airborne. If you need a reminder, stand behind one that’s taking off.

It’s pretty easy however to overlook the amount of time/effort that goes into the giant task of painting an airplane. This several minute time lapse is pretty eye opening. It takes a long time and many people to paint even the most “simple” livery onto a plane. And that particular aircraft has had at least 3 distinct paint jobs, perhaps more since it’s over 20 years old.
