Museum of Flight (2008)

Boeing’s Museum of Flight

While living in Seattle, my parents and Dan all came to visit me over the 4th of July holiday. We spent one of our days together at the Boeing Museum of Flight.

Inside the museum

null
Early flight ideas

null
Delivering the mail

null
Oooo – neat truck! (said at a flight museum; oh well)

null
Beautiful engine configuration

null
More bizarre flight ideas

null
Sunny days aren’t always good for lighting

null
Another mail delivery plane

null
Classic lines

null
And people complain about today’s seats

null
Think that’ll fit in my VW?

null
One of the sexier planes out there (oh, Hi Dan!)

null
Another view of the planes on display

null
Better than explosive underwear, I guess

null
Oh Canada!

null
Hmmm – not terribly legible

null
Blackbird

null
I’ve never seen a plane look so serious

null
Future pilot

null
These two cracked me up!!

null
Speaking of cracking me up…

null
I never could follow directions

After we looked at the main display area, we walked outside to see some of the larger planes.

null
The beginnings of Boeing

null
“Look at all of the wood!!!”

null
The Concorde

null
Inside the Concorde

null
Don’t forget to cancel the turn signal!

Outside of the Concorde

null
Air Force One (1959)

null
It looks so… quaint!

null
Cutting-edge technology

null
I wonder if peanuts were included in each flight

null

null
Many an important thought occurred here

null
“Please secure the line”

null
Dan says that most of those are fuses

After touring Air Force 1 and the Concorde, we went back inside and view the World War II display. Dan took all of these photos, so I don’t have much to say

Now the display goes back a war to World War I

null
Dropping water balloons?

Tell me what you think! I want to know!
