Note On The Wing Of Alaska Airlines Plane Causes Concern

Damaged Wing Noticed By A Passenger, Shown On Twitter

Alaska Airlines says that the plane was structurally fine to fly, but a message written on the wing of one of the carriers airplanes caused some consternation for a passenger that saw it, and passed it around on Twitter.

The note was just above a damaged section of one of the plane's flaps on the starboard wing. It said simply "We know about this," with an arrow pointing to the damaged section.

The online site "Travelers Today" reports that the airline said in a statement that the note was "nothing to worry about." They said the message was written by a maintenance worker to inform the flight crew that the damage had been noted, and that it was scheduled for repair. But the airline quickly had the note removed when it became aware that it had been seen by a passenger. Spokewoman Bobbie Egan told the Associated Press that the note "was not appropriate and did not follow company procedures."

The airline issued an apology to anyone who might have been scared by the incident.
