Museum of Flight (Part I)
If you are into gundam, museum of flight should also be right down your alley. The Museum's collection includes more than 150 historically significant air- and spacecraft, as well as the Red Barn®—the original manufacturing facility of The Boeing Co. The Museum's aviation and space library and archives are the largest on the West Coast. More than 100,000 individuals are served annually by the Museum's on-site and outreach educational programs. The Museum of Flight is one of only 750 museums in the nation and nine in Washington state that are fully accredited by the American Association of Museums.
The museum is located at 9404 East Marginal Way South Seattle, WA 98108-4097, USA. I happened to visit a good friend of mine at Seattle and he bought me there to check it out. The place is really cool! Here are some pics:
The F-14 is the first thing you will see outside of the museum.
This tower is part of the museum.
The store for shipping.
One of the corner features space travel (rocket) history.
I like the black bird the most.
The handsome F-4C.
The back of the black bird with engine details. (Well, not just details, it is the engine itself :)
If you prefer a car that flies.
Can you count how many cylinders?
Ok, more shots of the black bird.
