Aviation Meet Takes Fans Behind Scenes

Aviation Meet Takes Fans Behind Scenes

Sprawled out before us sits the exterior of the world’s biggest building by volume. They make airliners here. Big ones.

“Let’s go see some airplanes!” says our Boeing VIP tour guide. I remind myself: This doesn’t happen very often. Yeah yeah yeah, Boeing offers public tours of this 98.3-acre airliner factory north of Seattle every day. This ain’t that. This is special.

As part of a convention of aviation fans called Aviation Geek Fest, we’re gaining ultra-exclusive access to the factory FLOOR. The public tour is limited to the balcony. We’re about to walk knee-deep where Boeing gives birth to some of the world’s biggest and most advanced airliners, including the 747-8 Intercontinental, the 777 Worldliner and the 787 Dreamliner.
