The Boeing Assembly Plant in Everett, Washington is the largest building in the world (over 13 million cubic meters) and produces the 747, 767, 777 and now the 787 (The Dreamliner) We will see the production of several of these airplanes; we do not know which aircraft we will see until we arrive at the assembly plant.

We will leave Vancouver at 9am by chartered bus and plan to return by approximately 5pm. The trip at the assembly plant involves a walk of about a quarter mile and climbing a flight of stairs.

We will have lunch at the adjacent Hilton Garden Inn before returning. The cost of the trip, which includes transportation, entrance fee to the plant and lunch, is $90 per person. This is an open event – you may bring your significant other. We have capacity for 56 individuals only. If you register and can’t make the trip, you may cancel out by Friday November 5th –. After this date, no cancellations are permitted unless we can replace you with someone on a waiting list.

Unrestricted parking is available on the north side of 49th avenue and on the west side of Ash. You can leave your car there until we return. The bus will be stationed at 49th and Ash.
