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.

From Airliners:

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...

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.

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.

Seems early, but thinking back I can recall a couple of much larger winter storms on or before Thanksgiving. Generally we’ll get snow a couple of times and it’ll last 2 or 3 days. But this has been a very odd weather year. Wet cool summer and warm sunny fall. About a two weeks ago we had the hottest November day on record - and now it’s snowing - go figure.

That weather isn't that bad, and the winds are gusty bust pretty much down the runway. I've noticed when flying out of there that there is a parallel taxiway running in between a couple of the runways that they have put the big flashing "please don't land on me" X's on.

Here's an airport diagram with 34L being on the west side of the field. This might also be something as silly as the lights being covered on the taxiway and the guy taxiing into the infield and getting stuck.

LOL..... Close, I live in outside of Port Angeles, Wa. It looks close on the map, but it’s around a 2 1/2 hour drive and about 40 minutes on a ferry. I can cut about 30 minutes off of that by going another route, but the drive sucks.

False Alarm

SEATAC, Wash. — A Boeing 747 freighter overshot its designated stopping point on a runway after landing at Sea-Tac Airport on Monday afternoon, an airport representative told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News.

The China Airlines plane with two or three people aboard was too close to the runway's end to make a turn after stopping, so a tug has to push the plane backward, said Terri-Ann Betancourt.

The plane went beyond a painted line on the runway but did not go off the pavement, Betancourt said.

It was a “driving” and not an in-flight problem, Betancourt said, adding that there were no injuries and no damage as a result of the incident.

Sea-Tac’s runaways are open for traffic

Why would they land a 747 on the shortest runway especially when it could be slick?

FOR EVERYONE:

Sattle/Tacoma/Everett area is pretty much in total, complete gridlock. ALL freeways are shot, many major side roads are also locked up.

People are having big problems getting to the airport. One caller to a local news/talk station said he saw people walking up the road close to the airport with their luggage...in a driving snowstorm...just so they could get to the terminal.

I read the current NOTAMs for SEATAC and they are supposed to be rotating the runways for snow removal. They are reporting 1/4 inch of snow after the snow is removed. I’ve seen a lot worse around this area.

This is a total non-event. With the throats of the runways like they are they probably realized too late that they were passing up the last option to get off the runway.

3 feet. It started yesterday and it’s been nonstop until about an hour ago. Outside temp is now 25*. Forecast says it will be sunny tomorrow but still below freezing, then the next day the snow is supposed to start up again. We expect a tough winter.

Looks like it will be pulled out and taxi back on it’s own. Just a little slippery and couldn’t stay on the runway.

I wish I was living on a boat, but no. Mine is only a 28 footer... we have camped on it for as much as 4 weeks, but it’s really too small to live on.

I live on a mountain at the base of the Olympic Mountains. It’s situated on what is called the North Olympic Peninsula. I look out at the Straight of Juan de Fuca and then 19 miles across is Victoria, BC.

The actual Pacific ocean is about 1 hour further west from me. BUT, the boat launch is only 15 minutes from my house. LOL

I love it here, but I do not like the snow and the winter winds.
