Although Seattle is no longer a one-company town, the aerospace industry continues to have a large influence on the region. Visitors can learn about the accomplishments of this industry at the Museum of Flight. The museum's exhibits cover commercial, military, and civilian aviation. Guests can see a large number of historic air vehicles, including the first Air Force One, a Concorde, a Blackbird spy plane, a reconstruction of the Wright glider, and a B-29 Superfortress. Over the years a number of artifacts and exhibits related to the Space Program have become part of the permanent collection, with more being added all the time.
