Quick Giveaway: How well do you know Seattle?

Hey guys and gals! 

We’ve been away from the giveaway game for a while, and we want to get back into it.

Last night we were flying back into Seattle, and we looped around downtown, to land from the north into SeaTac airport. It was a rainy night with water droplets obscuring the view of downtown, but as it is Seattle at night, it was still gorgeous.

Forgive the Blurry Photo, it was a turbulent entry

So here’s the question.

How long did it take to get from the Space Needle to wheels down at SeaTac?

We were flying in an Alaska Airlines 737-800 and it was slightly bumpy and rainy coming in. For a point of reference, driving from the Space Needle to the Airport if 14 miles and 22 minutes with no traffic. 

Directions from the Space Needle to the Airport

The winner will receive their choice of a first class amenity kit from our wide collection! In the event of a tie, I will award the prize to the first person to comment. Good luck!

  5. 3 minutes – its a quick touch down once you see the space needle and EMP – that is unless they made you circle for a while…

  12. I would say if you were circling around from the space needle to wheels down 6 min 20 seconds but sometimes it feels a lot longer.
