Video: A Sun Country Boeing 737-800 Gets a Fresh Paint Job

Enviado
 
This time-lapse from our friends at Jet Midwest offers a rare glimpse into the plane repainting process from start-to-finish. The clip begins with a Sun Country Boeing 737-800 (N804SY) landing at Kansas City International Airport. After a fast and furious time-lapse of less than five minutes, we witness what could easily be mistaken for a brand-new plane heading back to its home base in Minneapolis, MN (MSP).

Very cool. I can't figure out how to get an ink jet printer to print a t-shirt transfer correctly and these guys make all of that masking and layers look so easy.

Very cool!

I'd like to see the cost of just the paper,plastic and tape materials. That has to rival the income of one those workers.

So that's how it's done. Very interesting.

Looks to me like they stripped the original paint before the yellow primer. Even a dried coating is a significant load, don't double it!

They will just as we did in the Navy. That seemingly minor layer of paint can weigh several hundred pounds in an airliner. And, it does not have as good of bond as with a new coat on top of primer applied to a raw surface.

This also allows them to inspect the sheet metal for any signs of corrosion that might not be seen below the paint surface.
