Tour of the 747 assembly building

Post by curtis cutter » Tue Jul 16, 2019 9:49 pm

Had a great tour of the Boeing 747 main assembly building in Everett Washington today. Largest building footprint in the world.

It is amazing to see two 747's and four other full size aircraft nearly completed in one building. My legs are tired.

Just let go of it, it will eventually unplug itself.

So much to learn and so little time.

We had to turn phones off for the tour.
