What's Going On At SEA-TAC?

Sat Dec 08, 2001 8:04 am

I just heard on the radio that a 747 is being held on the ground because a passenger might be sick with a contagious illness. It was also reported that there was an anonymous tip telling about the situation. Anyone have anymore info?

Nobody has heard anything yet? I just went to a local site here in Portland and it said there was a tip that someone was carrying the smallpox virus on the plane. It has been sitting at the gate since 1PM pacific time. They aren't letting anyone off. Could you imagine being on that plane? There should be something about it on www.king5.com (local seattle station)
