Also the green strip doesn't go down the whole airplane...I was wrong...it only goes down about a quarter of the way.
It also comes over the top of the fuselage as well until it ends..whenit ends, it becomes to be striped vertically..so it goes from solid green, to vertical green line...white..vertical green line..white..that is on the fuselage.
Of note, the show went out of its way to point out that the repair -- when finished -- returned the aircraft to an as-rolled-out-of-the-factory condition, certified by the Boeing techs who performed the repair.
(and remember, unlike the JAL dome fix, this repair replaced, not patched, the dome)

You guys rule,
I watched that show over two weeks ago and wondered the same thing. I even got to think it was a VIP 763.
Incredible to see how such a small accident can force the airline to bring special Boeing techs to remove the whole tail, add a big bubble-styled thing to keep the pressure even, and take an airplane out of service for so long!
That's what makes aviation such a wonderful thing. I realized how symmetric the airplanes are in this program... it's all about perfection.
Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous!
