How they build and paint 737s

If you ever wondered how they build and paint big jets, this is a pretty fascinating time-lapse video of the process.  Forwarded by one of our members.  Not particularly relevant to GA, but fascinating nonetheless. In particular, having seen how Toyota (end every other major auto builder) builds their cars, I would have thought that the process of building a plane would be more, well, "high tech"---these planes are virtually hand built. And I would have thought painting a state of the art jet would have been more "high tech" than masking tape and brown masking paper.
