Been a long while since I've been here. But after reading this news item, I'd knew the guys on here would be interested.
Just amazing history with this place.

Boeing employees in May 1944 rolling out the 5000th B-17 bomber built since Pearl Harbor.Up for demolition are four factory buildings sandwiched between East Marginal Way South and the Duwamish, covering 1.6 million square feet.
The largely empty main building houses only three old airplanes belonging to the Museum of Flight, south of Plant 2 on East Marginal Way. Two Boeing bombers, a B-17 Flying Fortress and a B-29 Superfortress, have been there since 2004, being restored for display at the museum. A Lockheed Super Constellation joined them in September.
