I just woke up right now to a loud aircraft flying over my home. Living next to PAE I'm really used to aircraft flying overhead so it was no big deal. For some reason I thought this aircraft seemed louder. So I woke up and I went to the portofseattle flight tracker and noticed it was China Airlines flight 15 to Taipei.

It took off from SEA to the south made a U-Turn to the north and headed north along the Puget Sound shore towards Whidbey Island than made a turn to the east right over the Lynnwood (PAE) area headed east to about the Monroe area than made another U turn back to the west again over the Lynnwood (PAE) area and is now flying south over the Kitsap Penn. area.

Usually when flights from SEA depart for Asia they fly over the Olyimpic Penn. Over Port Angeles towards Vancouver Island. This is the first time I've seen something like this.

Anybody know whats going on?

Just a update: The A343 is flying over the Central Kitsap Penn area going in circles. It have done at least five full turn arounds so far.

I think there might be some kind of emergency.
