Assembling the Airbus A300-200F, Painting the Boeing 747-8, and The Life of Luggage

AIRBUS Logo A few weeks ago Airbus shared a video of an A300-200 airliner being assembled. Now they’ve shared another one, of the A330-200F’s final assembly. Yeah, same basic airframe, but the freighter version. Who cares, it’s aerospace factory pr0n!

I spotted a couple of additional videos in Aviation Week’s Turnaround Time blog. Lufthansa shared a video of one of their new Boeing 747-8 Internationals being painted. This latest member of the B747 family will enter service with Lufthansa in early 2012.

And finally, Delta airlines mounted six cameras in a piece of luggage and flew it from Atlanta to New York. The resulting video gives us a little peak behind the scenes at what happens to our bags when we travel. Of course, I’m sure everyone was briefed on this exercise and were on their best behavior. It is still an interesting little video.
