Commercial Jetliner Factories

I consider Jumbo jet hangars to be one of the most extraordinary places to experience – massive beyond comprehension. The Boeing Everett Factory in Washington is the largest building in on the planet and standing inside one of its hangars is overwhelming to the senses. It’s like being in the center of some super bright industrial galaxy with stacked platforms of gargantuan machinery and a vast network of multi-primary colored rafters, railings, walkways, work stations and paintlines. The sounds, too, are macrocosmic, echoing into an eternity said machinery, intercoms and electric powered vehicles. It’s like one part Bob the Builder’s play-world and the other part Death Star that’s been fully realized and expanded with Michael Crichton techno romance.
