If you thought painting a canvas or a mural was a big job, how about painting a jet? This time-lapse video shows all the prepping, spraying and frisketing involved.
It takes more than 50 gallons of paint to cover a commercial jet, and that layer adds about 400 pounds to the weight.
Some airlines have chosen a brushed aluminum finish to save on the weight and increase efficiency.
