Those Helicopters Are Covering The 3rd Runway Tests
No need to panic just ‘cuz there are helicopters hovering over Burien â€“ no, it’s not the end of the world, it’s simply a major waste of precious fossil fuels being used up to fuel the local news cycle.
They’re all jockeying to get the best shot of the “touch and go” airplane tests at SeaTac Airport’s new third runway.
According to our friends at the KOMO Newsdesk, the copters must hover over B-Town for safety purposes, and since there are three of ’em (at least that’s how many we counted) they have to spread out.
So stop worrying and get back to work, knowing that all is well (ahem, yeah right…) in your world.
