From ridiculously complicated product lifecycle management scenarios to some of the most futuristic manufacturing tech ever seen, few industries are quite like the aerospace industry.
While we may be a few years off from some really, really futuristic stuff trickling down to Coach—and even, First—Class, it’s safe to say that we’ve come a long way where aircraft design and manufacturing is concerned.
And there’s no better way to further understand this than to take a look back at how airplanes used to be designed—like, nearly 100 years ago.
In this epic recently-unearthed footage, we get a 45-minute play-by-play of aircraft manufacturing from 1918 that documents everything from gathering raw materials to what life was like in a pre–Henry Ford assembly line factory:
