Museum of Flight

We woke up to a cloudy misty day, so instead of moping, we decided to take a trip to the Museum of Flight in Seattle.
















The museum is well worth the time and effort and drive to see. Who knew there were so many different types of airplanes?

Lots of interactive displays for even small children.

The history of aviation is so well covered with a collection of airplanes and aviation gear from the first flight through the space station.




We didn't find Airforce One nearly as exotic as we expected. It DID look a lot more comfortable than the Concorde SST though.
















The skybridge between the main museum and the outside displays of the Concorde and Air Force One.

The museum is trying to add one of the Space Shuttles to the collection so all donations help make that happen. This truly a treasure of a museum to have in our city.




We all enjoyed the day! Sara and Jesse loved all the airplanes and the interesting decorations on the noses of WWII planes.
