Local history of Grimes Lighting and The Flying Lab aircraft. Open April through October or by special appointment. WHAT IS THE 'FLYING LAB' The best way to test a newly invented light was to put it on an aircraft and fly it up to altitude to make sure it performed correctly. Then they'd fly over to Boeing and show them the different combinations of lights available! It currently has over 75 lights on it!! We love to fly it for special events for everyone to see, and Love to see it! they do!
