Here are a few of the cool visitors that have come in to Seattle the last few weeks:

The first is one of the few DC-8s left in the world, owned by NASA.

The second is an F/A-18D from VX-23, helping perform tests with the KC-46A tanker.

The third is a slightly secretive C-146A Wolfhound.

And the last one is this really interesting Dash 8, with a few big lumps and bumps.

Cool photo of a modified Bombardier Q400 multi-mission platform used for maritime patrol and surveillance.

Interesting photo of the NASA DC-8. Nice collection of aircraft.

Photo 3 shows Clay Lacy Aviation in the background. Clay is an aviation pioneer, and his company does a lot of filming for movies (ex Top Gun).
He used to fly often at air shows, but I think he retired from that now.

Thank you! The DC-8 was very special. I hadn't taken any pictures of any before and I don't imagine I'll have many chances to these days.

And Clay Lacy has a great history. I've seen his gray Learjet there for Seafair, although not in recent years. The FBO is also the main stop for the military coming into KBFI so it's also great to pay attention to.

Great set! Bombardier Q400 is cherry on the cake.
