Continental 777 Seen At Sea-Tac

Sat May 10, 2003 4:59 pm

I was with my family at the beach on Friday afternoon (May 9), and about 5:30 we saw a Continental 777 departing from SEA. Anybody happen to know the story on this flight? And (even more important to a planespotter) does anyone know what its registration was, or by what means I can find that out? I do not know enough about ACARS to know if that will help or not. Thank you in advance for any help.

It Got In Way Early!

It got in real early, probably a medical diversion or something. It got in with an ATA 07:36 with a PTAof 10:32 and an ETA of 10:07.
What now?

It was a medical diversion. It had medics waiting at the gate, and I've never seen a 777 taxi so fast!
Some pics are in the upload que .....
