I started looking at the daily pictures on the Skyline Photography web site and I started to wonder if an Airbus has ever landed at Boeings Paine Field. Since TLS is also a commercial airport Boeings must have landed there.

Quoting PlunaCRJ (Reply 4): Talking about SQ´s A340, what did Boeing do with them?
Maybe I've got this all wrong....but I recall that Boeing had taken the SQ 340's as a trade-in for 777's and then sold them off....recall seeing pics of the 340's, but don't remember if it was at Paine field....

Believe most of these went to HAM when they were returned to Boeing. PAE didn't see them.
For a long time, there were hardly ever any Airbus flights into Boeing Field, but sports team charters by then America West changed that. There was even a visit by the Beluga A300-600ST back in 1998 or '99.

But it wasnt easy to get a new B737 tire in TLS! A friend of mine had some trouble with a B737 tire in TLS and it took forever until a new one was brought from FRA, because - surprise - no B737 tires available in TLS

Yes and it was promptly eaten by a 777 and craped out for parts.
The views written by this user are in no manner the views of my employer and should not be thought as such.
No.. there is a law on the books that states Airbus aircraft are not allowed to land there.....!!
TLS is also a commercial airport served by a few airlines.......Boeing/Paine is really there just to support Boeing. I'm sure with a major repair station being there the answer is yes............. but just look at the photo data base... nearly all of the photos are Boeing aircraft being delivered. There are very few transiate aircraft

A ton of landings have been made by Airbus aircraft in BFI!
You can see them in the photo database.
There are some United Airlines, America West Airlines, AirTran Airways, and Frontier Airlines Airbus aircraft pictures in there!
Air Canada Jetz were there, charters and UPS planes are there too!
