Boeing Factory Tour in Everett, WA just outside of Seattle is a definite must see in person when in the area. The sheer scale of the space and the planes and the factory in motion is mind blowing.

October 21st, 2013

From the Boeing Site, "The Future of Flight Aviation Center & Boeing Tour is located in Mukilteo, Wash., 25 miles north of Seattle. Public tours of Boeing's Everett factory are available seven days a week. The Everett, Wash., facility is home to the 747, 767, 777 and 787 Dreamliner production lines. During the tour of the world's largest building by volume (472,000,000 cubic feet or 13,385,378 cubic meters), visitors will see airplanes being built for our worldwide base of airline customers."

Most fascinating is just feeling the SCALE of the factory and the amount of people and parts that go into the planes we fly on... it was stunning, and definitely worth seeing in person.

Awesomest thing to see taking off in the fog outside the factory - the Boeing Dreamlifter. They only have 4 (and may make two more) and their only role is to fly around the world and pick up huge assembled parts, like fuselages, to fly back to the factory for assembly. They are so precisely timed, that nothing sits in storage, and it flies in just as it is needed!
