The Museum of Flight will celebrate the opening of its new, 3-acre Aviation Pavilion on June 25-26. The grand opening weekend for the roofed outdoor gallery will include live music and entertainment, airline-inspired fashion shows, swag bags for the first 500 visitors every day, refreshments, and performances by aerial artists dangling from the rafters. 
 
The airliner exhibit will include the world’s only presentation of the first Boeing 727, 737 and 747 jets, the first jet Air Force One, the extremely rare Boeing 247D and Douglas DC-2 airliners from the 1930s, the only Concorde on the West Coast, and the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The military line-up will include three big bombers–World War Two’s B-17F Flying Fortress and B-29 Superfortress, and the Cold War’s B-47 Stratojet; plus jet fighters spanning the wars from Korea to the Persian Gulf.

November AKCHO membership meeting – Jack Straw Cultural Center

Host: Jack Straw Cultural Center
Address: 4261 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle
Phone: 206-634-0919

Program: The Sounds of History

It’s not just words and pictures that help preserve history. Sounds can add incredible depth to that storytelling, and the nonprofit Jack Straw Cultural Center has been doing just that in the Seattle area since 1962. The 2014 winner of AKCHO’s technology award will host our November membership meeting, with Executive Director Joan Rabinowitz sharing its use of radio, podcasts and audio guides to record the histories of local artists, community groups and heritage societies. Recording the 50th anniversary of the 1962 World’s Fair, digitizing a 1970 KRAB radio series on Seattle’s history, and producing an oral history of Lake Union and Portage Bay are a few of the group’s contributions over five decades.
