These were clicked in December 2007. The Museum of Flight in Seattle is located right next to the Boeing Fields and is home to over eighty aircraft, some of which have a lot of history behind them. On a lucky day you might be able to spot a 787 Dreamliner or a 747-800 taking off or landing during a test flight. Some of the aircraft which you can see outside this museum are - a Concorde, the first Air Force One and the first flight-ready 747.
