and what about the landing?
Completed that too....
That's a relief.
YA BEAT ME TO IT!
Apparently accompanied by one of Boeing's T-33s for the final portion of it's flight, which looks like the obligatory photo run around Mt Rainier: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/N109X/history/20200125/1700Z/KMWH/KBFI
As far as I know its the only one they have also they used to have an F86 years back. When they were doing flight test using Moses Lake AB was when I, at 6ys old saw it flying off the first B52s wing. I also knew the FAA pilot who was qualified in both when I was working in Seattle. The first B52 had a B47 style canopy just an FYI.
Boeing has a T-33 registered as N416X. It was in the air recently: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/N416X/history/20200124/1855Z/KBFI/KBFI
They both were kept at BFI on the north west ramp where they also had the prototype AC parked. To see the -80 with a rear fuse engine mounted or the SST nose needle on it were quite a sight.
