SEATAC — Thieves stole 1,000 feet of copper wire from the approach lighting at Sea-Tac Airport.
The Federal Aviation Administration told KING-TV that the theft last week has caused no flight delays.
The lighting is for a runway approach that is seldom used in winter. The wiring is being replaced.
Port of Seattle police are investigating.
FAA spokesman Ian Gregor told The Seattle Times that the metal thieves had to make it past two fences.
