Calling all artists!! The Museum of Flight is launching a 50th Anniversary project called Astronauts on the Town! The project features 25 six-foot fiberglass astronaut statues designed by local artists. The statues will be displayed in a variety of different public locations within the greater Seattle area during the spring and summer of 2015. A great project for an artist interested in building their portfolio (a supply stipend is provided). To submit a proposal please see the following link. Proposals are due on April 17!

Lots of rain in the Northwest today, so our thoughts went to float planes. We took a look up at the at the fine wood pontoons on the Museum's replica 1916 Boeing B&W. http://ow.ly/i/89UPa http://ow.ly/i/89UQ6 http://ow.ly/i/89UQn

Happy 50th first flight day anniversary to the SR-71! We have a very rare version of the Blackbird - the M-21. This picture is of inside of the nose gear door, showing signatures of Blackbird crew members who have visited our aircraft. For more info on our aircraft see:
http://www.museumofflight.org/aircraft/lockheed-m-21-blackbird
The Blackbird family of aircraft cruise at speeds of more than Mach 3 and fly over 85000 feet (25500 m) in altitude. Conceived nearly 50 years ago, Blackbirds remain the fastest and highest flying air-breathing production aircraft ever built. This M-21 is a unique variant of the A-12, ...

+Aaron Adams they're going to make a huge hangar in the gravel parking lot next to my school (RAHS) and we're going to have our own private entrance, not to mention that they will probably bring in the comet into the airpark

Astronaut pauses to compose a special wish list for Santa:

Aircraft and spacecraft, little toys for us all.
Happy takeoffs and landings with never a fall.

Peaceful times through the darkness,
Peaceful passages through light.
Merry people we call,
And to all a good flight.

Absolutely loved this place, from the exhibits to the staff. I had so much fun, I would give it 7 stars if I could. The best part for me was seeing an SR-71 in person and sitting in the replica cockpit of one, as well as seeing the inside and outside of the Concorde. I have always adored the Concorde so this was an unforgettable experience. Seeing a real Air Force One was a great way to experience a piece of aviation history, too. Space exhibit was also cool; lots of information about space living. It took me well over three hours to tour the entire place because I was reading majority of the placards. Definitely recommend a visit.

One of the best collections of civilian and military aircraft, along with spacecraft I've ever seen in one place, perhaps only topped by the Smithsonian's National Air & Space Museum's annex in Dulles, VA. I'm especially fond of the airliners they have parked outside, which include a 787 (ZA003), B-29, Concorde, the world's first 747, SAM 970 (Air Force One), 737-100, 727-200 and a Lockheed Super Constellation, among others. Most of these you can walk through, which makes for an unforgettable experience.

One of the best flight museums in the country. Great space and well put together exhibits that accommodates plenty of visitors while keeping the flow of crowds moving. Discounts for AAA members.

Awesome collection of early flyers, WWI & WWII, Cold War, first Boeing factory, amazing NASA stuff like space shuttle, US section of international space station, capsules, moon car, ... Kids fun and educational activities! Full Motion Flight simulator in a very low price! It's only open from 10am-4pm, yet lots of stuff to see. Definitely a must go for the whole family!!!

Superexciting! Flight and space exploration history exhibitions are so inspiring and educating. Step into Number One and the-fastest-passenger-plane-in-the-world (Concord). Won't spoil anymore, just dedicate a whole day and pay a visit.

expensive for the limited number of aircraft on display, especially considering places like the national museum of the united states air force in Dayton, oh and the Smithsonian air and space museum in d.c. are both free... still the red barn display showing the origins of the Boeing company was very very cool. that part alone makes it a must see for aviation enthusiasts... you can walk the whole museum in a couple hrs

Great museum. I especially liked the many civilian aviation exhibits, though there was no shortage of military ones with several unique displays like the Blackbird with mounted drone and the SR-71 cockpit to sit in. Waking through the planes like the 747 and Concord was very neat, too.

Great Museum However, I was disappointed that Air Force One exhibit was closed when I arrived. They should post things like that on the website. Not that I would not have gone, but I wouldn't have been disappointed when I found out after I paid. staff was super friendly and helpful. The Dreamliner walk thru was really cool.
