Flight crew all became ill, and they made a couple of diversion decisions until ultimately landing in Seattle.  I watched them perform this turn on approach into KSEA in person.  Never seen this before, especially at the milton intersection, so I am curious what happened exactly.  

From my ADS-B receiver:




Scale of that turn is about 3 miles in diameter.

They had to bleed off airspeed after the rapid descent, and what better way than to execute a tight 360?
