Travel by Allen Seattle Area

Mofgallery2bI've been living in the Seattle area for over 25 years, and as an aviation enthusiast, I've enjoyed the opportunity to visit most of the region's extraordinary range and variety of aviation themed museums and other aviation related activities.

But do you know of Microsoft co-founder and billionaire, Paul Allen's semi-personal but open to the public collection of warbirds, the Flying Heritage Collection? And while you may know about the Museum of Flight, do you know about their wonderful Restoration Center?

If hiring a WW2 bomber is too big a statement to make, there are similar aged biplanes (both open and closed canopy) and if you're a nervous passenger, why not enjoy the ultimate safety of a flight in a glider (no need to worry about engine failure – there's no engine to start with!).

On the other hand, if you're not at all nervous, why not go solo or tandem skydiving.

Further afield is the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum – another amazing museum that these days is the home of Howard Hughes' Spruce Goose, and another hour or so drive further down the road is another excellent museum – the Tillamook Air Museum – that is sadly too often overlooked due to its comparative remoteness.

You mightn't want to read all of it today, because if you do, you might find yourself feeling the need to travel to Seattle sometime soon. Click any of the preceding links to jump into the middle of the series, or click here to start in an orderly fashion at the beginning.
