I saw on the evening news last night that the plane did divert. I'm surprised at first that they diverted to BFI, but I guess a few extra hundred feet of runway is important when you do a no flaps landing. ARFF at BFI is pretty good since it is where Boeing has flight testing for its 737s done.
Can anyone find it on flight aware?
BTW, I'd like to compliment the article. It was well written.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
