The dilapidated factory that helped make Seattle a high-tech town is being demolished after 75 years, a casualty of time, technology and tails that grew too tall.
Boeing Co.'s Plant 2, a sprawling but outdated building, gave birth to some of the world's most significant aircraft.
It was the site of Seattle's biggest disappearing act and a home to "Rosie the Riveter" - women who built thousands of World War II planes.
