Thanks for the info, Rob. I'll let you all know what I see.
I don't know how often any of us here get to actually see the assembly line of Boeing or Airbus - I for one have take the Boeing tour about 10 times and never gotten the 777 tour, only the 747 line - so if we got to see the Trip line, sweet! No matter, I'm pretty excited about getting up there.
When I first registered for airliners.net, it was around the time of my first trip to Seattle many years ago - my first trip to PAE
(Viewpoint Park - my spotting spotting point) and BFI
. What an imapact it had on a naive Chicago suburbanite! Growing up in next to ORD
made me curious, Seattle mad me an a.nutter! I'm really looking forward to getting back to the SEA
area after a five year absenece.
Thank especially to Royal's photos, I'm totally psyched for my next visit:
BTW, wish me luck - this is that first trip I take my future wife on her first aviation-related vacation (she's doesn't know what she's getting into!) Sure, she's been spotting with me a few times, she knows the difference between a 777 and a 747, and thinks the MD
-80 looks like a part of the male anatomy, but she's never endoured hours and hours at BFI
...but I think the factory tour should hook her in
