My First Visit To Seattle’s Museum of Flight At Boeing Field Seattle Washington Aviation Photography

The Museum of Flight in Seattle Washington located next to Boeing Field is a great small aviation museum just south of downtown. It has amazing airplanes and a fantastic view of the nearby runway. I took the city bus to what I thought was the correct stop. It turns out I was 2 miles short of the correct stop. This was an incredible stroke of genius on my part. I got to walk by the Boeing Co. on the east side of the street and the west side of the street. There were so many cool planes being repaired or refurbished, and I could see them through the fences. My goal was to create beautiful Seattle Washington aviation photography that day.

Creating Seattle Washington Aviation Photography

Upon arriving after my two-mile walk, I had less than an hour to photograph this Seattle area aviation museum. I ran through the museum photographing as many historic aircraft as possible. I took my time to walk through the Concorde, a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, and a Boeing 747. It is a dream of mine to fly on a Boeing 747 and a Boeing 787, but a walk-through was delightful. I am for hire as an aviation photographer.

If you have a few hours free on your Pacific Northwest vacation and you love aviation, make the Museum of Flight a stop on your trip. Even if you have a pre-paid ticket as I did, you’ll still have to wait in the ticketing line to get your entry ticket. When you are in a hurry, this can be frustrating. That took another 20 minutes off my trip, but I still had a great time here.

In 2022 I was allowed to visit four world-class aviation museums in the USA. Three were in other states and 1 was at home in Dayton, Ohio. While this one in Washington State was not the biggest, it was awesome due to the history of Boeing being directly next door. It was a plane lover’s dream!
