Delta L1011 At SEA Today

Fri Sep 22, 2000 2:54 pm

Around 4:30 pm (seattle time) Delta had an L1011 here in SEA!! IT was a huge surprise to see. It was towed off the gate shortly there after. I didnt see it take off (if it did later) but i was wondering if someone knew why it was here. I thought it was probably because of a mechanical delay from another plane so they had to use it for as a spare?!?!?!

Very interesting. I wonder if it will come again.... never see those around here.

Maybe not so rare?? I took off from SEA today behind a Delta L1011 bound for ATL. It was about 8:15am. I think that's the first I've seen in there. So your sighting makes it twice in one day!
