Feel The Paine.
Paine Field Airport in Everett, Washington is known by aircraft connoisseurs all over the world. It has a rich history serving as an Air Force Base, a commercial airport, the facility where the first Boeing 747 was constructed is also home to The Museum of Flight, Paul Allen’s Flying Heritage Collection and Boeing’s Future of Flight Aviation Center. It’s safe to say that just about anything that flies can be found at Paine Field.
“The large commercial airport that was planned for in the 1930s never resulted. When the United States entered into World War II, there was a need to protect the Bremerton Shipyards and the Boeing plant and airfield in Seattle, which produced the B-17 and B-29 bombers. The Army Air Corps occupied the field in the spring of 1941. At that time, Snohomish County Airport consisted of little more than two paved runways in the common cross-section pattern, set off at different angles to take advantage of the most favorable winds.”
