Mikey's Moments > Museum Of Flight
The Museum of Flight is located at Boeing Field near Seattle - and is the largest private air and space museum in the world. It has over 150 aircraft including the first Air Force One and - especially exciting for me - it has a Concorde in its collection - and British Airways no less!

A long range shot of Concorde patiently waiting for us...

One of my personal favourite planes the Lockheed Blackbird - this one is the M-21.

Here is another view of the Blackbird with an Alaska Airlines Douglas DC-3 and Learjet Lear Fan 2100 hanging above.

Here the back of the drone can be seen over the open cockpit canopies of a McDonnell F-4 Phantom.

Here are James, Carina and Anthony by Concorde.

Here is somewhere I'd love to sit - in a Concorde seat. Alas not possible anymore :(


image

A very privileged place to be - the Concorde flight deck.

Three Concorde passengers disembarking after a rather short flight!

The Original Airforce One - the US Presidential plane - is a specially built Boeing 707-120, and is known as SAM (Special Air Missions) 970.

The centre of power in Air Force One. SAM 970 has carried presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon, as well as VIPs such as Nikita Khrushchev and Henry Kissinger.

Here is Anthony and Carina in front of a NASA Boeing 737-130.

Guess who is tall enough to touch an engine on a Boeing 747-121? ;)

A Trans-Canada Airlines Lockheed Super-G Constellation.

A final shot of the British Airways Concorde and the Man from Wales :)
