747 Construction Pics

Wed Jul 25, 2001 7:21 pm

Hi guys

I'm really hoping someone might be able to help me with some Boeing factory 747 CONSTRUCTION pics.

I intend to build a model diorama of a 747 in its construction phase at the factory. The more detail I can find on this topic...the more detail I can add to my project.....

If there are any ground engineers (etc) that could supply a couple of real close up pics of the flap assemblies, I'd be much obliged!!!

Many Thanks

There is a book available at Boeing's Factory in Everett called 'The Making of a Jetliner'. I am not sure if they still have it or not. It has pics, as well as procedures of how a B 747 is being assembled.

Hope this helps!
