Alaska wing message freaks passengers

A passenger on an Alaska Airlines flight looked out the window and saw what looked like a damaged area on the wing with a handwritten note saying, “We know about this.”

A photo was posted on social media sites about the note a passenger spotted on July 28th.

Seattle-based Alaska Airlines says the plane was safe and there was nothing to worry about. There was an approved trim repair to the corner flap on the right wing. A maintenance technician wrote a note on the wing to let the flight crew know that it wasn’t a problem – they were on it.

The airline reassured passengers the message was the result of a technician’s good intentions. Still the Sharpie message on the plane did not follow company procedures, and has since been removed.
