Boeing Museum of Flight



After studying all of Leonardo da Vinci's early sketches for flying machines and learning all about inventions and famous inventors like the Wright Brothers, we decided to go check out the Boeing Museum of Flight. We learned about the four forces of flight in an exciting, hands-on class, then explored the exhibits.







WE also learned about roll, pitch, and yaw and how ailerons work




And, of course, imagines ourselves as pilots!





We checked out a reproduction of the 1903 Wright Flyer, the plane used in the first flight at Kittyhawk 


And compared to models made from Leonardo's sketches (Boy, were we excited when we walked into the museum and recognized these!):


We were so fascinated with aviation, that many of us now dream of flying in one of these one day:



Thanks for the inspiration, Beoing!
