I expected them to wait longer to continue as they already have 26 earlier 777-9s to finish to specifications when it finally gets certified. 1716 is the next one.

It's because the trackers didn't pick it up until it was over 2000ft off the deck at BFI, by which point it had just sailed past the end of the RNTs runway so the trackers just choose the nearest airfield and put 2 and 2 together assuming it makes 4.
