Not a whole lot of info, but that would be the second incident involving BLI in the last day.

Flight 365 left Bellingham bound for Las Vegas, said Mike Fergus of the FAA, but was diverted to Sea-Tac after a report of a possible fire in the cabin. He said the report later changed to a possible fire in the cockpit.


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

Does anyone know if this was an Ex Alaska plane. I know Allegiant got a lot of planes from Alaska and it would have been an interesting homecoming since Allegiant does not serve Seattle.

I know Allegiant is very active in the charter operations, could this have been a charter flight?

Allegiant has daily nonstops from Bellingham to Las Vegas, so doubtful.

According to Janes only 873GA (946AS) and 874GA (945AS) are former Alaska birds. I can't tell by the video - my eyes aren't that good - which tail it is. And yes, this was a regular scheduled flight, not a charter.

When AS was getting rid of the last of it's MD-80s, there were clauses put in the sales or storage contracts of them that they could not be sold to G4. It was something along those lines. Just like when the last 737-200s were sold off, they could not be resold to Northern Air Cargo because they'd be directly competing for AS business.

It wasn't that they couldn't be sold to G4, it was that G4 wouldn't agree to a non-compete clause requiring the planes not be used in expansion plans in AS markets for a certain number of years.

Ah, thanks for the clarification.
