The Museum of Flight is a must see for all aviation enthusiasts. Note that the B-17 "Boeing Bee". a B-29, and a Connie are currently in Boeings Plant 2 just down the road. The museum also has a restoration facility that is open to the public up in Everett on Paine Field, you can see it from Airport Road.

Great museum to visit if you are 12 years old with your Dad. Great planes in terriffic shape but they are too crowded together to really appreciate their condition. There just isn't a "good" spot to stand back and look at any individual aircraft. I was very disappointed as I thought the Museum was supposed to be one of the best in the USA.

We took our grandsons, ages 4 and 6, to the Museum of Flight. It was the most wonderful experience they could have had. They were able to, in the childrens area, work the controls, watch what the effects were and have a great experience. We are members and recommend anyone who likes aviation to support the museumt. Even though we have been to the National Museum in DC, we feel that the Museum of flight is one of the best.

Very impressive displays inside and out! The Super Corsair, the Gee Bee Z, and the SR-71 are well worth the price of admission! You can even sit in a cockpit of an SR-71 and F/A-18. One of the Concorde's is availible to walk through! You can also walk through the old presidential VIP-707 And do your best Richard Nixon impersonation!

The Museum of Flight has on loan from the US Air Force museum program B-29 Superfortress 44-69729, named T Square 54. It was being restored in the parking lot of the museum. At this time, the aircraft is no longer on display. It has been moved to an off-site restoration facility for some work that was beyond what could safely be done in the parking lot. The aircraft will eventually be back on display at the Museum of Flight.

The Museum of Flight does NOT have a B-29. Having said that, however, their collection is quite nice, and the restoration center in Everett has some very interesting projects going on. Last time I went, they were working on a de Havilland Comet and an F7U Cutlass, along with the aforementioned Crusader and Wildcat (they also had a disassembled Vampire.) The Museum's also recently put out a B-47 Stratojet, and gotten a MiG-15 and MiG-17F, which I believe are on loan.

I thought it was a really cool place. They had lots of great exhibitions and the people there are very nice.
