Not sure if this is true but heard a rumor that a Northwest DC-10 had a number two engine failure on take off from Sea-Tac airport yesterday. (7/4/2000) The plane dumped it’s fuel and landed safely. I remember hearing about an American DC-10 with a similar problem. (except during flight) This was about a week ago. I was wondering if anyone knew more about the incident.
I myself was flying back to Chicago from Seattle yesterday aboard a United DC-10. I was amazed to see so many DC-10’s at one airport in one day. I saw many United, Northwest, and Hawaiian DC-10’s yesterday.
