Seattle-Tacoma, Moses Lake/Grant County, Ephrata Municipal, Moses Lake Municipal & Seattle-Tacoma – Wednesday 18th March 2020 (Grant Robinson)

Hi all,

Of the overall Boeing MAX hunt, this was the most eagerly awaited day where we would get to see over 200 of them parked up at Moses Lake. I suspect many of us would never have heard of this place before the Boeing facility started being used to relieve the Seattle Boeing fields……how many of us will ever go back?

Seattle-Tacoma

An early start from the hotel where we saw a few departures climbing out.

Moses Lake/Grant County

It had been a three hour drive from Seattle Airport to here and so we were all looking forward to the photographic flights that had been booked with Michael Stein of Columbia Pacific Aviation. He has done quite a few of these flights and knows the best orbits to fly to give you the best chance of snapping away with the camera to get those MAX.

Many thanks to John Maloney for sorting these flights out for me. Michael Stein welcomes any further interest of the back of this email and can be contacted at – mstein@columbiapacificaviation.com

We never tried to get any of the MAX from the ground but it looked a pretty tough job to do it that way, especially if you want to see more than a tail.

I spent at least two days going through the many photographs that I took at Moses Lake and have come up with the following conclusions.

On Wednesday 18th March, there were 230 MAX parked outside in four areas.

Boeing Ramp – 51 airline colours, 3 white = 54 total

Moses Lake/Grant County MAX map page 1

Old B-52 dispersals – 55 airline colours, 8 white = 63 total

Moses Lake/Grant County MAX map page 2

College Ramp – 86 airline colours, 13 white = 99 total

Moses Lake/Grant County MAX map page 4

Mitsubishi Ramp – 13 airline colours, 1 white = 14 total

Moses Lake/Grant County MAX map page 3

Total airline colours = 205 Total whites = 25 Total MAX = 230

I have created map diagrams which detail which aircraft were where. Those in green were identified from my photographs and those in pink correspond with the known number of that airline to be there leaving the white ones which either had test registrations on them or were totally unmarked except for the tiny line numbers on white paper stuck to the nose wheel doors.

Those in white total 25 of which 3 have been tied up, leaving 22 for which have been fudged as this corresponds to what remaining whites ones should be at Moses Lake.

Three MAX were unaccounted for at Moses Lake and they must have been in the big Boeing hangar which I’m told can hold three aircraft. These were Aeromexico XA-MAU (c/n 43709), Korean Airlines HL8349 (c/n 63437) and Lucky Air N1780B (c/n 64946). The Korean returned to Renton from Moses Lake on 23rd April according to FR24.

Ephrata Municipal

Twenty minutes drive and 15 miles to the Northwest of Moses Lake/Grant County is this massive and very well maintained airfield. The rotting Catalina sits outside and the general aviation is in the two big hangars either side of – 47.309436, -119.524186

We were in search of a supermarket and so it would have been rude not to see what this small airfield had to offer.

Seattle-Tacoma

A long drive back to Seattle was broken up by some scenic stops. One was just before the main crosses the Columbia River at Vantage Bridge – great views here looking across to the Ginkgo Petrified Forest State Park and the Columbia River which runs all the way to Portland and then on to the Pacific. Another was Snoqualmie Pass which is where you do not want there to be any snow around if wanting to use this road to get to Moses Lake and back.

Once back at Sea-Tac Airport, we spent a few hours until darkness watching the arrivals and departures. Views of both at the same time are hard to come by but we settled on this location from where I was able to take photographs of the departures and with care, we could see the arrivals in the distance – 47.430730, -122.318731
