I'm not sure what this is about but would like to add. The quickest commercial flight in the world (according to the Guinness book of records, who are we to argue!) is between 2 of the Orkney Islands off Scotland. If the wind is in the right direction the short hop between the islands can be achieved in around 70 seconds!

Well that's interesting. Maybe an aborted takeoff?

To get up, turn around and line up takes more time for a 757!!!

Boysteve,

CPH-R, yes that's the one, thankyou. I hadn't got my Guinness book of records to hand at the time!

But if you are in a north flow in the Seattle area, once you get off the ground at SEA, you already ARE lined up for BFI.

Would this be for the new 757 winglets? What do airlines do at BFI anyways. What is the need for them to go to the place in which the a/c was built? Do they do this when their own maintance crews can't fix something or for tests?

Thanks

The plane was perhaps going in for some warranty work???? Seems logical enough to use the plane in revenue service as close to BFI as possible before the ferry flight. Would be kinda dumb to ferry the plane empty from IAH all the way out there..

I just realized now that it was SEA to BFI...duh on my part so disregard my comment above (thought it was BFI to BFI). What Jhooper says makes sense...
