With her maiden flight just a few short weeks away, the newest 787—and the first for Virgin Atlantic—is all set to take to the skies. And to honor this momentous machine, Virgin has just released this stunning time lapse video of its construction.
After watching this timelapse video of 2,459 photos stitched together, you'll be bowled over by the photographer's sense of adventure—not to mention Air France's passengers' willingness to allow a tripod and DSLR set-up to click away every 30 seconds.
