Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Aircraft construction. Technicians studying design plans whilst assembling an aircraft's wing, in this case for an Airbus passenger aeroplane. They are standing beside the rear edge of the wing. The moveable flaps (white) along the wing are designed to change its shape to alter the amount of lift generated by the wing. Wings produce lift because the air beneath it exerts a greater pressure than that above it. This pressure difference is caused because the shape of the wing makes the air under the wing travel slower than that above it. Airbus aircraft are built by a consortium of companies in different European countries. Photographed in Germany.
