2016 Grounded Hogs Dinner

Celebrating 100 Years of Boeing Seaplanes in Seattle

Friday, February 19th, 2016, 6:00 PM, Museum of Flight, Seattle


Speaker Topic: Boeing Seaplanes, Celebrating the First 100 Years

“Bill Boeing began designing and building airplanes in 1916 with the Model 1 (known as the “B&W”), a seaplane.  How did Mr. Boeing become interested in aviation, learn to fly a seaplane and what motivated him to build an airplane and start an aircraft manufacturing company?  This talk will preview the Company’s early seaplane history and look at the different models it built.”

Speaker Bio: Bill McCutcheon, MOF Docent and Board member.

Like us, Bill is a Pilot. He served in U.S. Naval Aviation and was a Business Consultant (CPA), having graduated of the University of Washington.  He is the Docent Representative to Museum’s Board of Trustees, conducts museum tours, and instructs for the docent training and youth education programs.
