The Museum of Flight Honors The Boeing Company
Museum's Red Barn Heritage Award ceremony June 28,
free admission to Boeing employees, retirees, families June 26-29
SEATTLE, June 23, 2014--On June 28, The Museum of Flight will present The Boeing Company with its prestigious Red Barn Heritage Award. Named for the original Boeing factory building, the award is presented in recognition of nearly a century of extraordinary leadership, inspirational contributions to the community, and exceptional commitment to the mission and vision of The Museum of Flight. The Museum further acknowledges The Boeing Company with complimentary admission to all employees, retirees, and their families from June 26 to 29.
The 2014 Red Barn Heritage Award recognizes "from the time William E. Boeing took to the skies with a simple canvas mailbag to today, the company he created has continued to revolutionize the American workplace and the aviation industry. It has taken us across the country, around the world, and beyond Earth's gravity. And it has been a tremendous supporter of the health and human services, environmental, educational, civic, and arts organizations of our state and our nation."
