Future of Flight Field Trip

Spend Sunday afternoon, September 24th, with other CppCon attendees at the Boeing Future of Flight museum! Skip the Space Needle, the Future of Flight tour is the highlight of the greater Seattle area.

Field trip description

Visit the biggest building, by volume, in the world. Imagine a building so big that your brain can’t comprehend the size. Imagine full size jumbo jets moving along a production line like cars. Imagine engines the size of dump trucks lifted overhead and attached to massive wings. You’ll sit in the cockpit of a jumbo jet! This is a tour that you won’t forget. This trip includes a visit to a museum dedicated to flight and a 1.5 hour tour of assembly lines and Boeing production hangars from a birds-eye view for the 747, 767, 777 and 787 Dreamliner models. You must see it to appreciate it.
