Walk On A Boeing 747 And Boeing 787 And A Concorde Airplane In Seattle Washington

The Museum of Flight in Seattle Washington is a wonderful small aviation museum that has great views of Boeing Field. I had less than an hour to photograph this Seattle museum as I took a bus to and from the museum. I quickly ran through the museum photographing as many historic aircraft as possible. My goal was to walk on a Boeing 747 and Boeing 787. Did I accomplish my goal?

My Walk On A Boeing 747 And Boeing 787

I did take my time to walk through a Concorde, a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, and a Boeing 747. It is a dream of mine to one day fly on a 747 and a 787, but a walk-through was delightful. I love the interior of the 787 but love the exterior of the 747. Walking on all three planes was great. Now I just need to fly on the two that are not retired.

If you have a few hours free on your Seattle Washington vacation and you love aviation, make the Museum of Flight a stop on your trip. I am for hire as an aviation photographer.

Poor Ticketing Process

One thing I didn’t like here was the ticketing process. I purchased an online ticket in anticipation of the abbreviated time I would have at the museum. When I arrived, I tried to enter, only to be told that I had to wait in line to exchange my ticket for a wristband. There is no line for people who made an online purchase, so I had to stand in line with everyone else. This cut 20 minutes off my experience, but what could I do?

This is the only museum of any kind that I have been to where there are exhibits on each side of the street. The coolest and largest aircraft were on the west side of the road after you go across the bridge. I could not believe that I would get to talk through a Boeing 747 and also a Concorde. I had only seen my first Concorde earlier this year at the Udvar-Hazy Smithsonian Air And Space Museum. The one today was open to walk though, and I couldn’t believe how cramped it was. The 747 was a test plane so it was not filled with seats. It was still amazing to be in one, finally.
