What a cool combination of things going down at the Future of Flight tomorrow, Friday August 6th.

Award-winning author and radio producer, Harriet Baskas, will be signing books  from 10am ’“ 3pm. She is author of six books, including Washington Curiosities and Washington Icons.

Harriet writes about airports, air travel, unusual museums and other topics for MSNBC.com, USATODAY.com and many other outlets. She also runs the blog Stuck at the Airport.

During the book signing, the Future of Flight Store will also offer wine tasting and discounts of up to 50% on selected Northwest wines.

Go see some planes, take a tour of Boeing, get some amazing books signed. No, I don’t get any kick backs for any books sold, but they are great books. I have my own copy of Washington Curiosities and love it!

Hey David,
Just out of curiosity, how often does Boeing have tours of their facilities? I plan on making a trip down there to document some of what they do. Is it only during a certain time of year that they do it?

Thanks, Brad

Hey Bradley!

Boeing tours go on daily 9am to 3pm. You can buy tickets there or also reserve online or via phone. Your standard ticket also includes access to the Future of Flight gallery, so make sure to leave time to check that out!


Big bummer is no cameras are allowed on the Boeing tour, but welcome at the Future of Flight.
