VIDEO: From Wichita to Renton: the journey of the 737

Over fields and farmlands and forests. Through darkness and dawn. Across rail yards and rural towns. Past sidecars and silos. In ice storms and silver thaws.

But thanks to the marvels of time-lapse photography, we now have a video journal of this incredible trek through the heartland as seen by the 10,000th fuselage, line unit 6868 (we reset the clock after the last 737 Classic shipped in 1999).
