Space Shuttle Trainer Arrival At BFI

Thu Jun 28, 2012 6:23 am

Is anyone else planning on going down to BFI on Saturday to see the Super Guppy bring the shuttle trainer in this weekend? It sounds like it might be busy with the governor being there and other dignitaries but since I'm a Museum of Flight member and go there every couple weeks with my son I thought I might watch it come in with him.

Any suggestions on how early to show up? Last week when we went they had a 787 parked in the parking lot. Is that where the Guppy will be?
