Seattle Museum of Flight WW1 Champlin Exhibit

On Saturday June 12, 2004 a group of Red Baron 3D players got together to go to the Museum of Flight in Seattle WA. We met at a resturaunt called Randy's before going to the museum. The Personal Courage wing of the museum had just opened a week earlier and consists of aircraft of the Champlin exhibit. Though the Personal Courage wing has on exhibit both WW1 and WW2 aircraft along with many other exhibits depicting what it was like during the two wars, only WW1 era aircraft are shown here.
