The Dreamliner has arrived

The Museum of Flight accepted Boeing’s donation of the 787 Dreamliner (#3) this past weekend.  Not wanting to brave the crowds of 10,000 during that event, I waited until after my shift today to take a look. 155 more words


Space Suit

This Russian Sokol pressure suit belonged to Dr. Lu, who wore it during his launch aboard Soyuz TMA-2 in 2003.

Dr. Edward Tsang Lu served as a NASA astronaut for 12 years, 206 days of which were spent in space.  67 more words



Another sketch of the astronaut sculpture in the Museum of Flight, done from my photo.  NaNoDrawMo #5.  I snuck up behind him to get this view.

Charon moved

It was a very slow day for visitors.  The Charon was moved and is now closer to where I stand to greet people.  So I had lots of time to work on this sketch of it.  86 more words


Slow Day

The slow season has started at the Museum of Flight.  Even while greeting visitors yesterday and answering their questions, there was plenty of time to do a line drawing in the pocket Moleskine.   I colored it later.
