How to assemble the wing of the world's largest airliner

The production of this revolutionary wing design is revealed. It is a massive task to form the 30 tonne wing which takes 25 days. We see two key sub assemblies, one forming the wing's exterior skin and the second the skeleton. A mixture of graphics and footage from inside the actual factory bring this story to life. We see the main assembly jig, automated machines and lifting devices as the wing is skilfully crafted.
