January 30, 2008. After a delivery ceremony at Paine Field, the captain of Cathay Pacific Airlines 777 B-KPF copies clearance to Hong Kong and requests to stay in the pattern for a flyby. After a routine departure to the south, the 777 turns north, then south for an approach on 16R. This was no ordinary flyby, the daredevil pilot buzzed the tower 50 off the deck with the gear up. The crowd cheered, airport officials leered, but everyone at Paine Field remembers this delivery flight.
