On 19 December, Alaska Airlines flight 27 from Chicago to Seattle landed on Taxiway T, which is situated between two parallel runways, 16R and 16C. The flight was operated by N477AS, a Boeing 737-900ER.

Alaska Airlines pilot mistakes taxiway for runway at Sea-Tac


The plane landed on the Tango taxiway, which is second from the right, between the third runway at the extreme right edge of the airport, and the center runway.

This event reminded me another very similar happened in Barcelona 10 years ago, when an Aeroflot Tu-154 landed on the taxiway T instead of runway 25R.

I wonder how it is possible to make such a mistake, at least in conditions of good visibility as apparently was in both cases.

I read that Runway 16C was just recently repaved and as such, there were essentially very few tire landing marks on the end of the runway. Also, it had just rained recently and with both Runway 16C and Taxiway Tango wet, it was nearly impossible to tell which one was the runway and which one was the taxiway.

I'm sure Seattle International Airport authorities will likely change the landing lights and put special markings on the surface of Taxiway Tango to prevent such incidents in the future. They were VERY lucky there wasn't another plane taxiing on Tango or there would have been a horrible tragedy.

American Airlines flight from Rio to Miami makes 'emergency landing' in Brasilia: Second flight grounded in two days after passengers and crew sickened with mystery illness.

Is this sickness a secret terrorist attack ?

Maybe it's the new method of terror. Instead of placing a bomb in the aircraft, they put some kind of virus in the airline food.


Possible causes:
1. Problem in the galley. It is possible that the flight crew felt sick due to a problem with a machine in the galley. An oven may have been smoldering or could have been cleaned with a chemical which, when the oven was switched on, gave off fumes. This may explain why the flight crew reported feeling sick while only two passengers were taken ill.



2. Fault with the air conditioning pack. All planes use an air-conditioning system which maintains the pressure and quality of the air. Research has stated that the air quality on most airliners is better than in a car, but faults have been known with the packs. However, experts say that such faults are usually immediately obvious as the system would pump out blue smoke, and it would affect everyone in the cabin, rather than just a few people. American Airlines has said it found no fault with the aircraft.

3. Something in a passenger's bag. Passengers on the flight reported having their bags checked after landing. It is possible a faulty laptop battery may have leaked a chemical or that someone had another substance which leaked, caused people to feel nauseous.


4. Hysteria. Experts say that people get a heightened sense of concern about their health once they see others feeling sick. It is possible the fainting of the air hostess caused others to become concerned about their health and report feeling ill with no direct cause.

Leaking faulty laptop battery, oven cleaning detergent ? That would'nt take out an entire flight crew. Also it happend twice within a short period of time.
I think this is a misdeed made on purpose to cause harm to the airplane.



If this was a minor incident due to fumes from a oven, why didnt they stop at KEF, Iceland to fix the problem before continuing to the destination LAX ?

No this was a major emergency.

It is quite obviously the result of a bomb. There is onboard video of the aftermath. You can see the remains of the lowlife who detonated it in the above picture (the pink smudge).

The seat place was chosen on purpose to be right under the fuel tanks. It seem the device was activated right next to the seat which saved the airplane. If it was activated on the floor, there was big chance to rupture the fuel tanks and this could probably lead to complete hull loss. Of Course even with fuel tanks ruptured there's a chance for an airplane to survive such accident because the A1 jet fuel is pretty much like diesel it doesn't burn quite easy when its in liquid form, what actually burn is the fumes. But taking in mind the travel distance I doubt that the fuel tanks were 100% full at this case.

AF23 is operated by a 777. Guess what plane has been chosen for the article? An A380! journalists...
