Sea-Tac Airport is holding aircraft fire drills this week on the center runway that’s closed for construction. So don’t worry if you are at the airport, or aboard a plane, and see Port of Seattle emergency vehicles buzzing about and fire trucks spraying a (mock) aircraft. It’s training only and will not affect flight schedules or airport operations.
The drills will be held twice a day, July 16 through July 19, as part of regular emergency response training. And, yes, the Sea-Tac Airport drills were scheduled before the recent crash landing of the Asiana Airlines plane in San Francisco.
