Speed Painting

So today i watched a documentary about Boeing planes and one of the highlights was that it takes 3 months to paint a plane. So i thought to myself, haven't they ever noticed how once a plane is in the air it becomes so small that you can even cover it with your thumb? Why not wait till the plane is in the air, then you can paint it quickly with one paint brush stroke.

Moral Of The Story: Gravity is an artist's friend.
