Quoting Flybynight (Thread starter): I read the A380 was just in Vancouver, BC. Well, it sure would be neat to see the A380 fly by my downtown office on final into Boeing Field.
I dunno about that, but I would put odds on an A380 winding up at the Museum of Flight. That's not a disparaging remark against the A380...after all, if a Concorde can wind up at that museum, why not an A380 (after how many ever years)?

You may get your wish when UPS takes delivery of their A380's. They put a 747 into BFI on occasion now, why not an A380 later? Could happen....
If you were around BFI last Saturday, there was quite the display of current VLA's out there - a 744, the 744LCF and an AN124

Well it isn't unheard of. I think the plane could make a stop. There have been other Airbus planes parked in front of the Museum of Flight. I remember when they had the entire parking lot blocked off for a charter Frontier A319. That was a big smack in Boeing's face as they flew the A319 since Frontier at that point was just starting to phase out the 733s.
The Museum of Flight isn't directly associated with Boeing, although Boeing is a big contributer. I worked in that museum and never once saw the word Airbus anywhere, but an A380 stop would be incredible. But there is no reason for a stop in Seattle since no airline in Seattle will buy the A380 unless AS does some massive expansion.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
