On our trip to Seattle last week I made sure to visit the Museum of Flight [www.museumofflight.org]. Located just south of Seattle at Boeing field, the museum is also home to my favorite airplane: Concorde. Concorde was the first airplane to capture my imagination as a child and I regret not having had a chance to fly on any of them. Imagine taking in this view on the way to your seat!
True, there’s not a lot of personal space on those seats, but you have to remember that they were all short flights! This particular plane, G-BOAG (aka “Alpha Golf”) has a pretty interesting history [www.concordesst.com]. Originally called G-BFKW, it had no buyer after manufacture so BA used it as a spare and even used it for spare parts for awhile!
This post is my submission to Travel Photo Thursday, a weekly collection of travel photos from around the world hosted by Budget Traveller’s Sandbox [budgettravelerssandbox.com]. Be sure to check it out!
That is a surreal view. Nice shot.
Fascinating photo series. I was in Seattle about a week and a half ago. What a pity I missed visiting there.
