Here's an interesting bit of film: English factory workers assemble the frame of a "fighting scout" during World War I.

One thing they got wrong: Johnston Island was used extensively after WW2 as a clandestine base for testing nuclear weapons. I flew through there once (January 1972) -- they made us pull the shades on the windows and put armed guards on the airplane to be sure the windows stayed shuttered. No photos for security reasons!
