The metal is protected that way....it is washed off later
Hey the first domestic customer of the 777X will be......drum roll please.....United Airlines. United postponed their A 350 order by at least 5 years, a nice way to say we won't exercise it as Boeing made a deal they could not refuse. Wait for the announcement later this year from Boeing and United.
Why are so many of the modern airliner fuselage sections coloured green?
My uneducated guess, the green is the surface protectant applied to the aluminum. It also can be a release film on the aluminum to protect the surface from damage.
But...not all the sections are green!
Because some are composite.
And that's the first class section... ð
