Air Canada took delivery of its first Boeing 737 MAX 8 at the end of October, and since then, it’s received one more from Boeing. Now, with two of the aircraft in its fleet, Air Canada is ready to welcome the rest of its order of 61 MAX variants throughout the next couple of years.

But before Air Canada can welcome the new aircraft into its fleet, they have to be built at one of Boeing’s plants — this specific model is assembled in Renton, Washington. Check out this awesome two-minute timelapse video of the assembly process for the brand-new aircraft. It’s truly a marvel of modern engineering:

This timelapse is exciting for any AvGeek to watch, and is sure to make anyone want to get on a flight to somewhere far away. Inside Air Canada’s 737 MAX, you’ll find a two-class configuration of business and economy, with 16 and 153 seats, respectively. Beginning next summer, the carrier will launch these aircraft on transatlantic routes to Ireland.
