Caution: Wrong Runway Alignments/Landings
King County International Airport-Boeing Field has experienced several wrong surface/runway alignments, wrong runway landings, and aircraft flying through the parallel final then turning back to the correct final. As expected, for each documented event, there are numerous undocumented events that are noticed and corrected by air traffic controllers and pilots.
Wrong runway landings/alignments present a significant risk to safety. An aircraft landing on the wrong runway could collide with an aircraft or vehicle that has been cleared onto that runway. Aircraft on final to the wrong runway risk colliding with another aircraft on final for that runway.
Pilots are asked to read and heed this Letter to Airmen (LTA) from the FAA regarding this issue.
