On Saturday, April 27, SAB hosted the annual Evening banquet at the Museum of Flight at the King County International Airport. From 8 to 11 p.m., Northwest University students, staff, and guests walked around in the T.A. Wilson Great Gallery, exploring the museum’s exhibits, including 39 full-sized historic aircrafts under one giant glass roof. M&R Catering provided a variety of desserts and refreshments while music played throughout the venue. A SnapBar photo booth was also available to create portable memories of the night.
Holding one of the largest air and space collections in the United States, this year’s venue allowed for attendees to experience flight simulation, using joystick controls to target enemy planes or barrel roll through the virtual sky. The museum had many exhibits available for attendees, including a US Air Boeing 737 you could explore inside, or a full scale model of a SR-71 Blackbird and a F/A-18 Hornet you could pilot. The newest exhibit in the museum was also available during the event; the Vietnam Divided exhibit, open only since last spring, featured uniforms and technology from the Vietnam War.
