Here are several extra events planned for the B'ville NW Banquet, February 13th.
On Friday night, 7:00PM at the Portland Airport Shilo Inn, Ed Shadle will present an
electronic program about the buiding and development of the North America Eagle, their
converted F-104 fighter adapted to retreive the all time Land Speed Record from Thrust II.
There is no charge to attend this event.
Steves Auto Restoration has granted us a 2 hour tour of their facility.
4440 SE 174th Ave
Portland, OR 503-665-2222
Since the shop is not open on Saturday anyone attending must be there before 10 AM. The door will open at 9:50 AM and close at 10AM. If you are not there during that time you will not get in. Rules are rules. It's well worth the effort to see this shop that produces award winning vehicles from the ground up. (Check that web site.) They did the tail section panels for Marlo Treit's streamliner.
The Evergreen Air Museum,
In the past several years, the Imax theather has been built and also another buiding, the same size as the home for the Spruce Goose, has been built. It holds their missile display. The SR 71 has been moved into that facility. Even if you have been there previously, it is worth another trip.
Use “500 NE Cumulus Avenue' for street address when using a GPS Device.
A longer trip, but just as exciting is the Museum of Flight in Seattle.
The Museum of Flight is located South of downtown Seattle, at the south end of Boeing Field / King County Airport; Exit 158 off Interstate 5.
It is 165 miles from the hotel. All of it is I-5 freeway and the drive time is 2 ½ hours. They have an A-12, the first model of the SR-71 and a Concord commercial airplane.
A main section is the actual wood building in which Boeing first built airplanes. It was transported up the Dawuamish River on a barge to be relocated as the primary building of the Museum of Flight. The actual tables on which the wooden framed planes were built are in place with original tools in place.
