Make it go, Grampa!

At the Boeing Museum of Flight in Seattle, there is a
full-size mockup of an F/A-18 fighter. A ramp allows
visitors to climb into the cockpit and get a sense of what
the pilot sees and feels.

A guide at the top of the ramp points out the various
controls and gauges in the cockpit and gives information
about the aircraft’s capabilities to each visitor who gets
in.

When my two-year-old son sat down in the plane, he seemed
fascinated by all he saw and heard. Then he looked out at us
and said, “Grandma, could I have a quarter?”
