Washington Warplanes, Seattle,

Museum of Flight

Data current to 24 Sep 2018.

Seattle, Museum of Flight, 9404 E Marginal Way S, 98108. 

The Museum’s collection of air and spacecraft is the most visible component of a wealth of aerospace-related artifacts.  The Boeing 80A-1, salvaged from a junk heap in Anchorage, Alaska, was the Museum’s first aircraft acquisition. It took many years and an incredible amount of effort to get this airplane on display in a new museum in Seattle. Yet, it was the first aircraft of many.  The aircraft preserved in the collection include:

Aeronca C-2 (Serial No. 301-23), Reg. No. N30RC.

Aeronca L-3B Grasshopper (Serial No. 9223), Reg. No. N47427.
