It has been a while since I have been on here. My job recently has had me all over the place. Now my job is based out of Seattle and I choose an apartment in Mukilteo WA (Seattle Suburb) little did I know (until I heard the planes) my apartment is practically right next to Paine Field. I heard the brand new Boeing widebodies flying right over my apartment. My question is how many new 777's and 747's come out of there. Today I saw a United 777 taxi and a Alaskan Airlines plane I'm assuming 737? sitting on the tarmac. Correct me if I am wrong in what they produce there? Are there ways of getting tours of the facility. It is also interesting eating dinner at the food places at the end of the runway and watching the the jets take off and land. Any information on this subject from anyone would be appreciated.

All of the widebodies ARE built at the Paine plant. That Alaska 737 was probably the new 900 and up there for some special reason. Tours at the Paine plant are available, see the Boeing website (www.boeing.com) for details.

Currently the production line at Boeing is pretty slow. I believe the 747 rate is about 2 a month and 4 for the 777. The Everett facility produces and delivers 747,767, and 777. Sometimes you see other models there, for example when the earthquake shut down BFI's runway some 757 and 737s were delivered from Everett. There is a rumor that the 757 deliveries will move permanently from BFI to spread the workload. I did not see the Alaska 737 today but it was most likely going to, or from, BFGoodrich (formally Tramco) for contract maintenance. Yes, there are tours available from the Boeing tour center of Hwy 526.
