Probably a 757-200 coming back from a Mx visit to B.F. Goodrich. If this is recent, A/C N512TZ came online recently.

Nobody here has any answer on this? I'm totally appalled!

Jjbiv had the answer correct .... We normally have at least one 752 at PAE for maintenance checks ..

-LN-MOW (or anyone), is this 752 in "Palm Tree" livery or a newly acquired aircraft? If it is in old livery, will they repaint at Goodrich? BTW, I loved that livery

This was a ferry flight for N517AT on its way to Goodrich for a C check.

I agree with the guys above. Alaska almost always has 1 or 2 planes at PAE. A lot of work is done up there.
