    Alaska Airline 238 circle mid flight

    Hi,
    I just noticed a circular contrail in the sky and found it odd. After watching a replay of recent flights over my area I see that ASA238 did a circle and then continued on to Seattle. Can anyone enlighten me as to why this happened?

    Thanks,
    Julian

    SEA inbound rate limiting.

    You can see other planes being delayed at the same time.

    Filter by SEA airport and click on a few aircraft at around the same time in the playback.
