Paine Field

Paine Field (PAE, KPAE) is an airport located in Snohomish County, Washington. There are three runways at this airport, 16R/34L, 16L/34R and 11/29. The last runway mentioned is not operative as Boeing is leasing it to park some of their aircraft.
KPAE is mostly known for the Boeing Everett Factory, which is located near the airfield.

Runway 11/29 
As a visitor, there are quite some things to see at this airport. Here's a small map showing all the attractions available at Paine Field. 
An "Aviation Day" will be hosted the 21st of May, which will include static and flying aircraft displays, entrance to the Flying Heritage Collection and the Historic Flight Fundation, plus many more things.
More info here.

Paine Field is a wonderful place for any avgeek, it's highly recommendable to go at least once.

I had the opportunity to be airside at KPAE on 12/04/16, so I'll post some of the photos I took that day. Enjoy!
