Alaska Airlines MD-80 With Hole In Fuselage

Wed Jan 18, 2006 12:10 pm

Hi kids-- I did a search on the forum but couldn't find the N-number of the Alaska Airlines MD-80 that had a foot-long hole in the fuselage. It was AS 536 SEA-BUR and returned to the field in Seattle after about 20 minutes in flight.

What was the N-number?

Cheers-- Jeff

It must be back in service. I was spotting at SEA Sunday, and I swore I saw an MD-83 with the same registration.
