Nothing more yet, just announced by Shep....
For some reason I thought he was doing one of those look backs into history on this date in the past. If not then prayers up for all aboard!
Looks like it’s SNOWING at Sea-Tac.
Flight identified as a China Airlines 747 off of runway 34L.
China Airlines 747 on Runway 34L. Emergency crews have responded. It is at the north end of the airport.
Airport is still open. Current weather is not very good at all. Strong winds of 17mph gusting to 25 with ice on the ground and current snow. Some airports handle winter weather well, but SEA is not the best prepared since it gets little snow. Current delays are over 1hr on arrival and it is getting worse.

Ruh roh! Been snowing here all day (not much, a couple of inches), but around here, that’s a lot. Nothing on local TeeVee yet...
A plane has reportedly skidded off the runway at Sea-Tac Airport this afternoon.
The unconfirmed information comes from emergency dispatch scanners.
The plane reportedly suffered no damage.
There are no reports of injuries.
KING 5 News is working to confirm the information.
Bristol Palin’s fault.
It’s dumping sleet and snow here just across from Joint Base Lewis-McChord. The wife’s cooking up some chili and cornbread. Maybe hot cocoa later?
Hope the folks at SEATAC are OK.
shemp is an ahole.
Blurb on TV - no injuries aboard China Air 747 landing from JFK NY. No incoming flights, runways closed due to ice.
Ok, since there are no injuries, let the Airplane! references commence:
“Flight 2-0-9 now arriving at Gate 8.....Gate 9.....Gate 10....”
FAA is confirming it as a 737.
I sure hope that’s true!

SEATAC, Wash. A plane has slid off a runway at Sea-Tac Airport, according to the FAA.
Dynasty Flight 5321, a Boeing 747, slid off runway 34L at 4:34 p.m., said Mike Fergus of the FAA.
Fergus said he didnt know whether anyone was hurt, whether the plane was damaged or how the incident is affecting air traffic at the airport.
Are the police chasing it? Why else would Shep be covering it?
Is it early for snow in your neck of the woods or is this about par for the course?
I don’t know the weather conditions at Sea-Tac. I am 3 hours to the west and we presently have about 3’ of that white global warming stuff on my roof. This could easily be weather related.
Early. This is a “mega La Nina” winter—we’re going to set records for cold and snow. This is already the coldest November since 1955.
No seating available to SEA-TAC at this time.....all seats are booked by Lawyers.
