Looking on flight aware and noticed a HA 763 departing KPAE enroute to KPAE. Knowing that Paine Field is Boeing's Everette facility, I am guessing this was a check-ride after some type of maintenance on the aircraft. The link is: http://flightaware.com/live/flight/HAL8981

Is my assumption correct? Anyone have anymore info?

Goodrich is in Everett. PAE is used for many test flights as Goodrich is one of the larger companies in the US that does maintenance for airlines. It's quite common to see flights from SEA to PAE in the evenings from airlines positioning planes, especially from WN.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Looks like its having something major done if it had to be ferried in under 91 and not 121 ops.

A few days ago a HA flight departed PDX en-route to HNL and came back to PDX. Hours later that night it ferried up to PAE. Two days later the same plane was seen coming back to PDX. It was flying under it's N number. Can't remember if it was N587HA or N586HA. Those 2 days it was gone HA only had the one 767 at PDX. As far as I know it did double duty as the second HA flight was extremely delayed.

Two rules in aviation, don't hit anything and don't run out of gas, cause if you run out of gas yer gonna hit something.

It is N587HA, and as Dinker said, there were some problems with it last week, which forced it to go to PAE for maintenance. What the problem was, I have no idea. In the mean time, they've been running the PDX-OGG flight as scheduled, but the PDX-HNL flight has to wait until the plane from HNL arrives in the evening, then turns to do the flight back to HNL leaving around 1am. Hopefully once this maintenance is done we'll be back on a normal schedule.

One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.
