If you happen to be near the Science Museum in London (which is free), I recommend a quick visit to the aviation section. On display there is a section, taken like a slice of cucumber, of a Boeing 747. The section is through the double deck area of the plane, and has seats, lockers wiring and piping in place. If, like me, you only normally get to see a passenger’s view of a plane, then this display gives an idea of the size and complexity of a modern wide body and also how elegantly engineered it is.

You can also see a similar section on the Boeing tour inside the factory on the observation deck. Cool stuff indeed.  Smile

The observation deck at BWI has the following on display;

A B737-200 nose section with viewable cockpit
A B737 vertical stabilizer
An entire wing of a 737 (minus the engine) with flaps and slats down, hanging from the ceiling.
A forward cowling from a JT9D, complete with fan blades
A main landing gear bogy from a 767
A fuselage section from a 737-200 showing the belly compartments and seat configuration, cut out in a fashion similar to the 747 pictured above.

They have a 747 cutout similar to the one above at the Everett, WA Boeing plant. This is a very nice tour out west.

Jeff, that sounds really cool. I didn't even know BWI had an observation deck. It has been years since I was at BWI.
Where is the observation deck? Is it pre-security or inside the perimeter?

My son and I frequently go to the aviation park out along Dorsey Road at the end of Rwy 28.
I guess this observation deck may give me an excuse to take him in the terminal.


My glass is neither 1/2 empty nor 1/2 full, rather, the glass itself is twice as big as it should be.
