I was with my family at the beach on Friday afternoon (May 9), and about 5:30 we saw a Continental 777 departing from SEA. Anybody happen to know the story on this flight? And (even more important to a planespotter) does anyone know what its registration was, or by what means I can find that out? I do not know enough about ACARS to know if that will help or not. Thank you in advance for any help.

It got in real early, probably a medical diversion or something. It got in with an ATA 07:36 with a PTAof 10:32 and an ETA of 10:07.

What now?

It was a medical diversion. It had medics waiting at the gate, and I've never seen a 777 taxi so fast!
Some pics are in the upload que .....
