Have you ever unboxed a brand new model airplane? It’s a moment to savor for any avgeek. There is a thrill of unwrapping the plastic off the box. When you open the box, you smell the fresh paint and glue. You see the perfectly crafted lines that make the aircraft easily recognizable. You remove the packaging, hold the plane in your hands and and admire the work of art you just purchased as you put your new collectable on the mantle.
Now imagine if that plane wasn’t just a model but a brand new $200M 787-9 Dreamliner. KLM recently made a video of such an occasion. While it’s not totally reality, it is entertaining and exciting to watch. As avgeeks, we applaud KLM for their creativity.
