It Was A Strange Day For Cargo At SEA, Why?

Thu Oct 10, 2002 12:27 pm

Today saw some "odd" cargo arrivals at SEA.

They were:

Tradewinds 511F from Tulsa, on top of the 'normal' PDX flight

A Murray Aviation??? DC-9 from Detroit

A Custom Air Transport 727 from LAX

and the Centurion DC-10 from Miami.

There was also a (im serious) a flight shown for a while as 800E, an Airbus A319 from SEA to Paris?

There are also an ATA L1011 and World MD-11 parked over by the construction for the third runway.

Anyone know why?

Perhaps something to do with the closure/reopening of west coast ports and the need to move all the freight that had been sitting around?

I wonder if there were unusual cargo flights at other west coast airports... Anybody see anything good?

This port thing is a major pain in the butt. They now say export cargo will not move for another 3 WEEKS !!

The 319 is a CJ .. the Airbus 'BBJ' .. Don't know which specimen. It can do Paris-SEA nonstop.

The World MD11 is a 'spare', I beleive. World have some spare capacity, so I guess they'll leave it here until they need to move it somewhere.

The ATA L-1011 has a 24 hour technical delay .. will depart tomorrow afternoon if all goes well.

And as have been pointed out by others, the port lockout is causing some unusual cargo traffic - and keep your eyes open for more!

Andreas you have all the answers! Any idea around what time for the ATA departure? Or where it is going? I would love to see it leave.

N161AT will resume the military mission to Japan, and the other one (160) is planned to go to LAX once it's fixed.
