It All Begins With One Part

I recently had an opportunity to wander around a Boeing 747.  The 747 is simply massive.  It is hard to imagine building something the size of that.  And yet, it all begins with one part being made.  I wonder what the first part in this one was? 


  1. nuts and bolts, I would think.

  2. That's fun to think about. What IS considered the very first part? I was a camp counselor in Breezy Point, New York, the first year the 747s were rolled out. We actually got a private tour at JFK. I remember standing with all the kids on the tarmac looking up at that giant. Every mouth was agape!
