Great Video of the new SWA "Illinois One" being made. Pretty lame music though



This brand new Boeing 737-700 unveiled today at Chicago Midway Airport features a rendering of the Illinois state flag and required 26 people at the Boeing Company working three shifts over the course of six days to paint.  More than 93 gallons of paint and 10 different colors make up Illinois One. Check out the aircraft being built and painted in this video:

And at KSJC (San Jose) she looked just like this!

I was walking into the jet center on Sunday 5-12 as she took the runway for departure. I quickly grabbed my camera!
