It is the first I have heard also. When one of the airlines was testing the CAT III system. They would land at Sea-Tac and come to a full stop automatically with the nosewheel on the runway centerline. I think the Port Police had to go out and either take pictures or observe it for verification, but the plane never turned off that centerline. Regards, Lou.
