On the public balcony, graphics show the stages of an airliner's production. After the various sections of an aircraft arrive on the production line (many of the parts are built elsewhere), final assembly can begin. Systems are installed, the fuselage sections and wings are joined together, tests are run, and engines and interior fittings are installed. The plane then leaves the factory for painting, test flights, and delivery to the airline.

Seems they've loosened up a bit.
Last time I took that tour, cameras were verboten. Thanks for sharing.
