Museum of Flight 747 #1

I took a friend to the Museum of Flight.  She took the crew compartment tour inside the Full Fuselage (Space Shuttle) trainer.  I’d been before so I did a sketch while I waited.  This is the the astronaut sculpture and mural.

While waiting for her to tour another gallery, I did a sketch on the cafe patio of the TWA Lindburgh Line aircraft on the tarmac.

Museum patrons are not normally allowed inside the 747 that is in the Air Park.  It was one of the first to fly and was never configured for passengers as it  was a test aircraft.  I learned that the 747 is open on Sundays in August.  So I got my first ever look inside.

  1. I like your sketch of the astronaut. He really looks like he has to walk slow with all the gear. What a fun sketch.
