What happens in Seattle should not stay in Seattle.

It was 36 this morning and is now in the 50s here. I give up on the weather!

Boeing factory tour was fun! It’s neat to see the 767 and 747 still in production, even though it’s for cargo and military purposes these days. No matter how many times I do the tour, the scale of the production building never ceases to impress me.

The weather cooperated nicely today - pleasantly sunny outside and warm enough to only need a light pullover or sweater. Folks did various activities this afternoon (Zorak and I went to Paul Allen’s Flying Heritage museum while others did a distillery tour) but we’ll all reconvene for a group dinner this evening...

Since at least one shenanigan is required, here’s a picture of how I prepped my car for FlyerTalk guests so everyone would feel right at home:




For the curious, FEBO was *not* observed, and there wasn’t any champagne PDB distributed, either.

That's really cool! How do you arrange a Boeing tour?

Was “diversion” the best word to use when talking about going to see planes?

No takers Not that it would have been a problem - I bought a brick of 300 Biscoff from Amazon to stock the office before I comprehended just quite how much Biscoff that is. (The box it came in was about the size of a shoebox, and densely packed.)

I'll have to keep trying to offload them...

Well I'm sure your guests felt at home with the gesture. Now if you had snack packs and peppermint Oreo's....

You must fly a lot of KLM. I can hear it now - almost like a broken record walking thru AMS airport . . . .

Mr Wickenhauser - James Wickenhauser (made up) flying to Barcelona. You're delaying the flight. Please report to gate C10 immediately, or your luggage will be OFFLOADED!!

I'm sorry, sir - it's "not possible" I fly a lot of KLM! "Mind your step", davetravels.
