During the Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental event, invited guests were allowed into factory to not only take a look at the Boeing 747-8I and 747-8F, but also the Boeing 777 Worldliner and Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

This is a huge treat, since Boeing normally doesn’t allow people to take photos inside the factory, but this time, cameras were allowed and I had a hard time cutting over 300 photos down to just 26.

I already posted photos being on the factory floor with the 747-8, but now it is time to share some photos of the 787 and 777. Unfortunately, we still weren’t allowed down on the factory floor with the 787, but we were able to get up close and personal with the 777 line.

Couldn’t get link to photos to work.

Pretty cool those cubicles of engineers and workers right there on the floor and not in some building a mile away. I bet every square inch of space has been planned out to maximize efficiency in that factory!

Weird, I just tried it and it seemed to work. Goes to Flickr:

But yes, it is amazing to see everyone in action. It is a well oil machine, that is for sure.


Oops. You were right. I could see them b/c they were all in private setting. Try again!


Really enjoyed the pictures, David. Thanks so much! They’re such beautiful machines to look at – I never get tired of it. Thanks also for the shots that show what it was like to be on the tour. Not as good as being there, but good enough to let us live vicariously through you!

you have the best job in the world!… lol

here I am, sat at work, ignoring my email and looking at your pictures!

Excellent photos. I wish I can see in person those 787 Dreamliner and 777 Worldliner

I wonder what would be the size of the sheds of which the factory is built. Truly amazing !
