Removing Paint From A Boeing 737 Is As Cool As You Think

It’s not necessarily related to the retail or commercial coating industry. It’s not a tip or trick that can help you with your weekend project. It’s not some new product that we carry. But I can’t stop watching this video of paint being removed from a Boeing 737.

This video uploaded by Virgin Australia shows how they repaint their airplanes. It took 11 days, 18 painters, and 260 liters of paint to remove the previous paint and repaint it by hand. My favorite part is when the paint melts, I could spend hours watching just that.

Not all airlines do this job manually. This video by Boeing shows that they also use robots to paint their aircrafts.
