This week, I took a flight to Busan, South Korea and visited Korean Air Aerospace tech center to see how they paint a Korean Air B747-8. Korean Air is the only airline that manufactures Boeing and Airbus parts. I discover behind the scenes how the B787 wingtip, tail cone, flap support fairing and A320 sharklet are made there.
Next, I visited Korean Air cargo at Incheon. Korean Air has a huge cargo operation that shines during COVID. I got onboard a B777-300/ER Passenger Freighter “Preighter” to discover the unique cargo operation.
Last, I visited the Korean Air catering center to see how they prepare airplane food. I was shown the popular traditional Korean Bibimbap and Mukbap dish.
