Riddle me this? How to the transport an airplane for assembly? It turns out that inside another airplane. Jokes aside, looking at how a 787-9 Dreamliner is built can not leave you indifferent. This $264.6 million behemoth from Boeing is 63 meters long and has a wingspan of about 60 meters, so watching the unit being built from Lego like blocks is quite impressive.
That phase of construction that is time-lapsed is the part where putting pre-made assemblies together happens. This makes about 1000 people busy for a while.
The time lapse not only shows how the body is assembled but takes in inside the plane, under the wings and very close to the engines.

P.S. watch carefully to spot how they fix the lavatory. this took away the magic of airborne toilet for me.
