King County Airport Terminal

I went to Georgetown to check out a possible site for a group sketch outing.  I’ve driven along Airport Way many times in the past year, often on my way to the Daniel Smith mothership (ah, flagship store).  Today I noticed this brick building.  It is the terminal for the King County International Airport at Boeing Field.   This is not to be confused with SeaTac, which is the major airport for Washington.  This  airport “serves small commercial passenger airlines, cargo carriers, private aircraft owners, helicopters, corporate jets, and military and other aircraft. It is also home to the Boeing Company’s 737 aircraft flight-test program, along with other Boeing operations. The Museum of Flight is also located there”.

Boeing Field opened in 1928.  I can not find any information on the date of this building, though.

It is also here that Air Force One lands when the President comes to town.  I was at the Museum of Flight one day last summer and saw it come in.   It taxied to the vicinity of this terminal.

I parked behind a barrier wall in the first row.  Just on the left of the sketch is a charging station.  There are 2 charging outlets for electric cars at least partially powered by a small solar panel on top.

    This is so interesting to see because my son Andy’s roommate (Duke) from the Air Force Academy, went to work for Boeing once he served his time in the Air Force. Also Andy, in one of his earlier years in the Air Force, was the pilot of the escort plane for the presidential plane.
