Atlas Air Dreamlifter 747 Emergency Landing PAE

KOMOTV in Seattle says it had hydraulic failure shortly after T/O. It was on its way to Japan when the failure took place. The aircraft returned back to PAE safely after dumping fuel.

I think you are talking about the dreamlifter 747-400 and not the dreamliner.

If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

It's always nice to get news, plus audio/visual, from a local source.

Nice job, Matt.
