Youtube has another neat film short done in Germany during the Great War. Showing some very involved manufacture of Albatros aircraft...from wood stock selection to final finish.

Fantastic Stephen – great find!
The attachment of the wings – showing the whole upperwing – so light – resting only on the cabane struts was quite something!

Stephen, thank you for sharing that. Working in manufacturing/aircraft industry, I find that stuff very interesting. I’ve always been curious how those people withstood the fumes of the paints/dopes used without protection. As David mentioned, I too found the wing assembly sequence quite interesting, specifically the top wing being assembled first. Again, thanks!
