I was there Christmas Eve after doing a roadtrip/helping an ex-coworker relocate to the city of Freeland on Whidbey Island [He is REALLY close to the plant in Everett, or at least it seems that way]
I wish I could have spent more time up there (only got to spend about 3 hours) before having to dash back home (1,500 miles down I-5 in just over 2 days) to get back to work/beat weather.
Only three complaints, all very minor:
- Too much military/not enough commercial for my tastes [I'm a commercial av. fan, indifferent to military-- not that it's not important/valuable]
- I wish more of the aircraft in the airpark were open for walkthoughs. Concorde and AF1 were great, but what about the insides of the first 747? [Being able to reach up and touch a 747 is a very unique experience. They're even bigger than they look from inside a terminal
-- that's why rampers are so lucky!]
- I was freezing my butt off walking through the air park so I didn't linger as long as I otherwise would have. Then again I'm a native southern Californian so anything less than 60 degrees is "cold" to me -- and this was December 24.
It truely is a great -- if not somewhat overwhelming -- musuem. I'm planning a trip (flying this time, probably AS LGB
) in March or April to catch up with the coworker/finish touring the musuem and get in a tour of Everett.
Go! Go! Go!
