Museum of Flight

Seattle Museum of Flight (May 30, 2017)

The Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington, features various aviation and space artifacts. Artifacts include the replica of Boeing’s first aircraft, the BW1, to the newest Boeing 787 model. Other aircraft from other commercial and military use, ranging from World War 1 to today, are on display in the massive museum.

The Aviation Pavilion features several Boeing models for tours: the 707 (VC-137) “Air Force One,” United 727-100, NASA 737-100, Boeing’s original 747-100 “City of Everett”, 787-8 No. 3, B-17, B-29, and B-47.  The Concorde is also open for tours. Unfortunately, the B-17 and B-29 were not open for tours. The B-47 has never been opened for tours. The 747’s upper deck is no longer open for tours.

The museum itself features various war planes and scenes from World War 1 and World War 2. The space station module was removed earlier this year and replaced with new exhibits.
