Boeing unveils public aerospace exhibit at Legacy West

At the Boeing headquarters in St. Louis, The Boeing Company proudly celebrates their more than 100 year history with an impressive Air and Space History Exhibit which portrays milestone events and displays models of aircraft and spacecraft that played pivotal roles in shaping the history of aerospace.

In Legacy West, Plano, home of the Boeing Global Services headquarters, a similar, though much smaller exhibit has just been opened. The display of large-scale models is visible outside on the west side of the Boeing office in the Legacy West complex and represents many of the commercial and defense products Boeing services including the F/A-18 Super Hornet, P-8A Poseidon, 787-9 Dreamliner, 737-800 BCF, C-17 Globemaster III, 767-300BCF, 777-300ER, and CH-47 Chinook.

Spotting it isn’t easy though. Standing on the west side of Windrose Avenue, look up and east.
