Authorities Probe How 'Suicidal' Employee Could Steal Plane

One user tweeted, "Some dude stole a plane from #Seatac (Allegedly), did a loop-the-loop, nearly crashed into #ChambersBay, then crossed in front of our party, chased by fighter jets and subsequently crashed".

"Told F-15s made it within a few minutes of theft of plane".

A full investigation is being carried out by officials.

He stressed that it was not a terrorism-related incident. We know who he is.

"Safety is our number one goal", Alaska Airlines CEO Mr Tilden said.

Trees burn near the Friday, Aug. 10, 2018 crash site of a Horizon Air Bombardier Q400 turboprop stolen from Sea-Tac International Airport. There were no passengers aboard.

An ground service agent at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is dead after stealing and crashing a commercial airliner on Friday.

Mr Southers said the man could have caused mass destruction.

Russell was not known to have had a pilot's licence, Horizon Air Chief Executive Gary Beck said at a news conference, and it was not clear how he was able to take off and fly as he did. We know who he is.

The plane was pursued by military aircraft before it crashed on tiny Ketron Island, southwest of Tacoma, Washington. He says Beebo was recently moved from the grounds crew to the tow team.

A ground service agent's responsibilities don't involve touching planes' controls, CNN aviation analyst Mary Schiavo said.

"An airline employee conducted an unauthorized takeoff without passengers at Sea-Tac; aircraft has crashed in south Puget Sound", it read.

Horizon Air is part of Alaska Air Group and flies shorter routes throughout the US West.

Video showed the Horizon Air Q400, a turboprop plane that seats 76 people, doing large loops and other risky stunts as the sun set on Puget Sound in Washington state.

An air traffic controller called the man "Rich", and tried to convince the man to land the airplane.

"This is probably jail time for life, huh?" he later asks, according to a recording provided by the Seattle Times.

In partial recordings of his conversations with air traffic controllers that were published online by Broadcastify.com, the man said he was sorry to disappoint people who cared about him and described himself as a "broken guy". "I would like to apologize to each and every one of them". Just a broken guy. Normal operations at Sea-Tac have resumed.

There were some stunts performed apparently by the plane over the sound and then he crashed into Ketron Island a small, not very highly populated wooded island, just off shore here.

A fire sparked by the Friday night crash "is pretty much out", Eckrote added. The plane was "highly fragmented and the wings are off", she said. I think I might mess something up there too.

Investigators on Saturday will try to retrieve the plane's flight data recorder and its cockpit voice recorder.
