Fly-by 6A Boeing Dreamlifter had to declare an emergency shortly after take-off at Everett’s Paine Field this afternoon. Matt Cawby of the blog KPAE Paine Field shared the conversation between the Dreamlifter pilot and the Tower. He also live tweeted the event here. The pilot declared an emergency and spent about an hour dumping fuel south of the airport before doing a slow fly by of the Paine Field Control Tower. Once the tower got a good look at the gear the plane swung around made a safe landing. Above are several photos I took of the fly by and landing. No word yet on what caused the issue with the Dreamlifter.
