747 Skids On Seattle Sea-Tac Runway Nov 22: No Injuries Reported
A China Airlines 747 Skidded On the Runway at Seattle's Sea-Tac Airport Monday Afternoon
It is not known what caused the plane to slide about 100 feet over the line, meaning it had to be towed back, but weather may have been a factor as there were a few snow showers during the day.
The 747 was a cargo plane and it was arriving form John F. Kennedy International Airport, which was a stop-over from its original destination of Taipei.
"It didn't come off the concrete, but technically it did go past the line," said Perry Cooper, the Sea-Tac spokesman.
No other air traffic was affected by this incident, but other incoming flights were delayed as much as four hours due to icy runways.
