Ksea Runways

Fri Nov 10, 2006 3:58 am

Ok, so I had a picture recently accepted where a plane is landing on runway 34C at KSEA; my caption makes note of this.

Since then, I have gotten several "corrections" that I need to "get my information correct" and "get a clue" despite the fact these people are actually incorrect as there is (now) 34C.

Has this happened to anyone else? Any suggestions on what I can do to stave off this onslaught of misinformed trolling?

Thanks!

I believe that those who have said this need to do some research before telling you that you are wrong. If they need more help on getting their information correct, then they can take a look a the following information: http://www.airnav.com/airport/KSEA

I did!

Here is the response I got:

"James

I've been involved with aviation for a while now...In fact work Near Sea Tac ....Watch planes from spotting areas at Sea Tac and never ever heard "cleared for 34C" on my air band scanner.I might you also look at Air Nav.com and many other maps of that tarmac and let me know what they say because 34 C is not there...Its Been 34 Right for a long time....So lets get a few things right here ...2nd of all I showed a few people your picture with your comment and they laughed at it...In fact stated that you were wrong also and they would know just as much as I would ..Sorry to disappoint ya...

Anyways...I'm glad you think you know more than me....Doubt it.... "

In any case, this guys name is Will Cook - if anyone knows him, please set him, straight  Smile

The newest reply gets even better:

"I did look at that link and that link showed your "34C" but at the present time they are not using it until that runaway is done which could be for a few years

I might also add you need to take a deep look in the mirror before you call anyone idiot because last time I checked you were the one posting idiot posts on Airliners Network "34C" which in reality is not there but I'll let ya think what you want

I would love to also see you taking pictures and see how long it would take for Port Of Seattle all over your butt for it because if you weren't so stupid you'd know its very illegal to take pictures near or around Sea Tac even from a distance...so keep doing what you are doing and we'll see how long it takes for ya to get caught..I'll even do ya a favor and have them keep an eye out for ya

You also mentioned my friends...Lets see I believe they would know more than you in regards to what lands and takes off there and so go back to what you do best and being an idiot at the UDub and let the professionals do what they do best

Best Regards

Will "

If I were you, I'd ignore these comments. It's pretty clear to me based on related threads that have popped up here in the last month or two that most aviation geeks in the Puget Sound area aren't aware of the change. Give it time...

Apparently the pilots of a recent Alaska Airlines flight didn't understand the change either.
