KBFI Boeing Field MSFS is a highly detailed scenery of Boeing Field, officially King County International Airport in Seattle, WA, USA. This product is compatible with Microsoft Flight Simulator.

King County International Airport, commonly known as Boeing Field (IATA: BFI, ICAO: KBFI, FAA LID: BFI), is a public-use airport situated just south of Seattle's central business district. Established in 1928, it's one of the oldest operating airfields in the United States and was Seattle's primary airport until the opening of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in 1944. Boeing Field spans an area of 634 acres (257 ha) and is positioned at an elevation of 21 feet (6 m). The airport features two asphalt runways: 14R/32L, which is 10,007 by 200 feet (3,050 x 61 m), and 14L/32R, measuring 3,709 by 100 feet (1,131 x 30 m).

Boeing Field has played a crucial role in the Boeing Company's history. In the 1960s, the initial assembly of the Boeing 737 aircraft took place at Boeing Field because the Renton factory was at capacity with the production of the Boeing 707 and 727 models. After completing 271 aircraft, the production was moved to Renton in late 1970. The airport also features facilities for final preparations and delivery of Boeing 737 aircraft after their first test flights, including a paint hangar and flight test facilities.

Boeing Field features two primary runways: 14R/32L and 14L/32R. These runways cater to a diverse range of aircraft, from light single-engine planes to large commercial jets. The airfield is equipped with a modern control tower, multiple hangars, a terminal building, and extensive maintenance facilities. It serves a variety of aviation needs, including commercial, cargo, military, and general aviation.

One of the airport's key attractions is the Museum of Flight, which is a remarkable institution dedicated to the history and science of aviation and space flight. Established in 1965, it has grown into one of the largest and most significant air and space museums in the world. This museum offers a rich exploration of human flight, from the earliest dreams of soaring in the sky to the complex realities of modern space exploration. The museum's collection boasts over 150 aircraft and spacecraft, along with thousands of artifacts, photographs, and documents. One of the highlights of the collection is the original Boeing 747 prototype, which revolutionized long-distance air travel. Also on display is an ex-British Airways Concorde, one of the few places in the world where visitors can experience this icon of supersonic travel. Beyond these headliners, the museum's exhibits span a wide range of aviation history. These include World War I and II fighter planes, early commercial airliners, and a growing array of space exploration vehicles. The personal stories of pilots, engineers, and passengers bring these artifacts to life, offering insights into the human side of air and space travel.

Boeing's presence at the airport is marked by the Boeing Delivery Center , primarily focused on the final stages of aircraft delivery for Boeing’s commercial airplanes. Located near Seattle, Washington, this facility is where Boeing completes the handover of its newly manufactured aircraft to customers. The main activities at the Delivery Center involve final preparations of aircraft after they leave Boeing's manufacturing sites. This includes conducting final inspections, implementing customer-specific customizations, and, occasionally, performing additional flight tests. Customers, typically airlines or private buyers, visit the Delivery Center to inspect their new aircraft before taking delivery. This inspection is a crucial part of the aircraft purchase process, ensuring that the specifications and quality meet the purchaser's requirements. The facility is equipped to handle various Boeing models and is designed to cater to the needs of different customers. The Boeing Delivery Center plays a significant role in Boeing's supply chain, marking the final step in the aircraft manufacturing process before airplanes enter service. It is an essential part of Boeing's overall operation, facilitating the transition of aircraft from manufacturing to active use by airlines and other operators around the world.

Boeing Field also serves as a key testing and delivery site for Boeing aircraft. New models and variants undergo rigorous flight testing procedures at the airport, taking advantage of its facilities and airspace. The airport's strategic location and infrastructure make it ideal for these critical phases of aircraft development and delivery.
