|B-52 Welcome Ceremony: June 3rd
Mark your calendar and get ready to "welcome home" the Museum's B-52G Stratofortress #2584 as it's delivered from Paine Field in Everett to The Museum of Flight on Sunday, June 3rd at 8:00am.
The B-52 fuselage - the largest and final piece of the aircraft - will depart Paine Field in the early hours of the morning on Sunday, June 3rd. The truck will travel south on 405 to I-5, then towards the Museum on East Marginal Way South. You are invited to come watch the massive fuselage roll into the Raisbeck Aviation High School parking lot, where the plane will be reassembled.
Join us Sunday morning at the Museum's Aviation Pavilion for the celebration of a lifetime! You'll have an opportunity to hear from members of the Project Welcome Home committee, learn about the campaign to build a new Vietnam Veterans Memorial Park, and honor Vietnam veterans with a special pinning ceremony to thank them for their service.
The Museum will open early at 9:00 AM after the welcome party, and Sunday admission will be free for veterans and active military members.
IMPORTANT ESPECIALLY FOR SUNDAY VOLUNTEERS:
East Marginal Way will be closed from approximately 7:45 – 8:45am, or until the airplane is completely off of the road. Anyone arriving after the road is closed WILL NOT BE ALLOWED THROUGH and will have to park and walk in from either the north or south. There are no exceptions to this, including ADA needs. Please plan accordingly.
