While walking back from breakfast this morning across the campus of the University of Washington, around 1025L, I saw a 747 taking off from SEA and turning east. While the 744 taking off isn't unusual for SEA, two things were. 1) the time of day (most 744s taking off either go in the wee hours of the morning or later in the afternoon) and 2) it was a Northwest bird, and I didn't think NW ran 747s through SEA anymore. I checked on FlightAware, and sure enough, there it is, going to DTW.

NWA had a 747-400 divert from Nagoya-Detroit to Seattle on Saturday, July 5. After several hours NW flew the passengers SEA-DTW on a A330-300. I know this because I was at DTW on Saturday night and noticed the NGO arrival was delayed until 10:30pm (from the usual 11:30am) and the screen showed inbound from SEA. Must've been some sort of in-flight mechanical with the 744.
