The Museum’s annual Seafair weekend outdoor festival-by-the-flightline, Jet Blast Bash, offers fast planes, fast cars, music, food and beer with the closest seats in Seattle to the ceremony and thunder of the Blue Angels’ takeoffs and landings.

Jet Blast Bash is at the launch pad for most of the spectacular Boeing Seafair Air Show performers. Our guest airplanes are a rare World War II PBY Catalina* flying boat featured in the Air Show as well as an E/A-18G Growler*. The Blast boasts classic cars, safe trampolines by Springfree® and activities for the kids, live music performances by The Mix and the Boeing Employee Stage Band and a beer garden underneath the Lockheed 1049G Super Constellation.

Activities inside the Museum include presentations about the Blue Angels. And Brian Shul, renowned speaker, SR-71 spyplane pilot and author, returns with his world-famous tales from the edge of space.

All FREE with Museum admission!
*Aircraft displays are subject to schedule changes.
