NO..I AM NOT ASKING WHAT YOU THINK I AM GOING TO ASK...

I was at Boeing Field this morning and at roughly 9:30am I saw a NWA DC-10 fly over from out of SEA as is the norm when we are all North Flow

I know that NWA operates DC-10s to HNL and AMS from SEA. The AMS flight leaves around 1pm, so I know that wasn't it. I figured it was Flt 89 to HNL which leaves around 8:40am, but he NWA site says they left at 8:45, and it leaves from the South Terminal which is about a 3 minute taxi when its North Flow. I also know that the NWA Website can be a few minutes off on departure, but 45 minutes is a way out of the norm. I tried the SeaTac noise abatement tracker site to try to identify it, but there was no data available at that time. Anyone have a clue which flight this was, or how I can find out? I am curious if they have another DC-10 that I don't know about.

Also, has anyone heard if NW is replacing their DC-10s? Maybe we should start a thread. Big grin

Dunno, but I wanted to say that my most memorable trip on NW was an ATL - SEA, on a 722 then a D10 via DTW. 722 was amazing, D10 was also great, about 1/4 empty, and the crew were exceptional. Even treated me for seconds (dinner) and were very attentive (I was way in the back).

It was just a late departure. It left the gate ontime, but sat off the side of the runway.

Jetjack74,

Thanks for you response.

Do you know this for sure as in you saw it there or is it conjecture? Just curious, please don't interpret this as challenging your answer.

NWA.com is probably the most accurate place to deterimine flight arrivals and departure info. THe NWA.com system is linked to PARs which is linked to Worldflight and all the airplanes flying around. It's darn near instantaneous when a flight shows out of the gate, off the ground etc...

The published departure times are the time the flight is expected to the leave the gate. Just because it's out of the gate doens't mean it's off the ground. There could have bene a hundred reasons why it left ontime but sat on the ground for a long time.

Jetjacks probably hit the nail on the head.

Yeah, it pushed on-time and sat on the runway for abit. I was commuting to DTW on NW210. They headed out to the runway, we left around 9am, and we passed right by 89, and departed ahead of 'em. Happens all the time. When we get an airplane boarded, we want the pilots to release the brakes, so any time we sit on the ground, we 're getting flight pay, and not ground time pay.
