About this route:

A direct flight between McMinnville Municipal Airport (MMV), McMinnville, Oregon, United States and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA), Seattle, Washington, United States would travel a Great Circle distance of 161 miles (or 259 kilometers). A Great Circle is the shortest distance between 2 points on a sphere. Because most world maps are flat (but the Earth is round), the route of the shortest distance between 2 points on the Earth will often appear curved when viewed on a flat map, especially for long distances.
 
The Great Circle route of your nonstop flight from McMinnville, Oregon, United States to Seattle, Washington, United States most likely still appears like a straight line because of the relatively short distance between MMV and SEA. The great circle route for longer distances would most likely appear more curved than the map that you see here.
