It's a wrap
Randy's Journal ^ | Aug 24, 2007 | Randy Tinseth

Korean Air has taken the Dreamliner Premiere to new heights. They’ve wrapped their entire headquarters building in Seoul with a giant image of a 787 taking off – in Korean Air blue – along with the words, “787 Dreamliner, Special Expectations.” And that’s no stretch.

Korean Air’s headquarters will remain “wrapped” in the 787 Dreamliner through the end of the month. The wrapping project took eight days - with 20 to 30 men working each day, attaching more than 300 pieces of film onto the building’s surface. They tell me that all the pieces lined up together would stretch 2.8 kilometers.

You can watch the entire project compressed into about 3 and a half minutes in this video.

Looks like KAL is really happy about their upcoming 787s.

Wow. What a billboard. Now I suppose we’ll start seeing buildings decorated this way all over the place.

Kindof interesting. Might even make some cities more attractive.

I'd say so.

From the article:

Korean Air’s Aerospace Division has participated in the 787 program from the development stage, including facilities investments in Korea and the manufacturing of six major parts such as the aft fuselage and wingtip.

Is this how they’re spending the money they made on price fixing?! LOL!
