Museum of Flight
The Museum of Flight at Boeing Field, which has more than 175 aircraft and spacecraft as well as thousands of artifacts on display, is the largest independent air and space museum in the world.
It is located at the airport in the “Red Barn,” the birthplace of the Boeing Company.
The museum’s collection began to be amassed in 1964 when a group of aviation enthusiasts and Boeing engineers banded together to save artifacts that represented the evolution of flight. They were afraid the history of flight records and antiques were being lost or destroyed.
The group established the Pacific Northwest Aviation Historical Foundation and began gathering these artifacts. The foundation first put its acquisitions on display in 1965 at the Seattle Center, the location of the 1962 World’s Fair.
The collection now includes millions of rare photographs, 100,000 books and aircraft manuals and 25,000 other aeronautical objects. The Red Barn became the first permanent location of the collection in 1975. It was restored in 1983 and was officially dedicated as the Museum of Flight in 1987.
MLK and King County
In 1852, before Washington became a state, the Oregon Territorial legislature named King County after then vice president William Rufus de Vane King. Franklin Pierce was president. Ironically, King, a proponent of the Fugitive Slave Act, died at his plantation near Selma just after being sworn in.
In 2005, King County officially distanced itself from the slave owner and proponent of the brutal slave law and, instead, paid homage to Martin Luther King Jr.
It was a change that was decades in the making.
In 1961, at the invitation of college friend Samuel B. McKinney, pastor of Mount Zion Baptist Church in Seattle’s Central District, Martin Luther King Jr. visited for three nights and drew admiring crowds.
The notion of paying homage to the civil rights leader started then.
But, it wasn’t until 1986 that the idea was officially broached. Ron Sims, a city council member who would go on to become a deputy secretary in the Obama Administration, proposed changing the county’s official namesake to Martin Luther King Jr. City Council passed the motion but it would take almost another decade for it to become state law.
In 2005, the state legislature voted to make MLK the county’s official namesake.
Two years later, King County changed its logo from a gold crown to a graphic image of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The logo, a powerfully striking image of King that appears on all official county documents, is a constant reminder of the slain civil rights leader.
