Stolen Horizon Air plane crashes in Puget Sound island

Alaska Airlines planes are seen at Seattle Tacoma International Airport in SeaTac Wash. Oct. 30 2013

The employee was a "ground service agent", according to Alaska Airlines.

Royal King told the Seattle Times he was photographing a wedding when he saw a plane and two F-15 fighter jets trailing it. "Normal operations at Sea-Tac Airport have resumed".

"There is a protocol to not allow anyone singularly to get onboard an aircraft", Soucie said. "Commercial aircraft are complex machines".

The man could reportedly be heard on audio recordings telling air traffic controllers that he is "just a broken guy". It's going to disappoint them to hear that I did this. "Never really knew it, until now", he added. Pierce County Sheriff Paul Pastor estimated that about 12 people live on the island. It did not elaborate.

"Nah, I mean, I don't need that much help; I've played some video games before".

"Alright", the man in the airplane responds.

An air traffic controller called the man "Rich", and tried to convince him to land the airplane. "I don't know what the burnage is like on takeoff, but it burned quite a bit faster than I expected". "You want me to ride the brakes in the cockpit" or 'Hey, what are you doing?' Nobody did that", said Kelly. "I hope they can make it through this". He flew it for an hour, followed by two armed F-15 jets from OR that the military scrambled, before he crashed.

The reprieve was only temporary and two goals in four minutes swung the game decisively in the visitors' favour. Chelsea legend Lampard was appointed the Derby manager in the summer - his first senior managerial job.


It is reported that the aircraft crashed near Ketron Island outside Seattle. The jets were armed but did not open fire, North American Aerospace Defence Command spokesman Cameron Hillier said by phone. The Department of Natural Resources said two acres burned.

Local media citing sources at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) air force base said one or more F-15 fighter planes contacted the rogue aircraft and it crashed soon afterwards.

Dozens of personnel were out at the crash site, and co-workers and family members were being interviewed, he said.

Russell was a resident of Sumner, Washington.

"Those pilots are trained for moments like tonight and showed they are ready and capable", he said in a tweet.

The incident has also raised questions about the physical security of the planes.

He flew erratically for some time while, according to the Associated Press, being tailed by military aircraft. He said the plane crashed in a wooded area.

"N$3 o signs of what happened, that's for sure", Hayes said. The plane was "highly fragmented and the wings are off", she said.

They may have cost him his life, but an airline employee's acrobatics in an empty propeller plane he stole in Seattle drew words of wonder from the head of the company where he'd worked. Ketron Island is a sparsely populated island 25 miles (40 km) southwest of the airport.

There were no reports of injuries on the ground, he said, except presumably the pilot. "We are devastated by these events and Jesus is truly the only one holding this family together right now", the family said.

"Could you start a left turn and we'll take you down to the SE, please", the air traffic controller then asked. "To our knowledge, he didn't have a pilot's license".

Authorities say he commandeered an empty Bombardier Q400, 32.61-metre long turboprop aircraft on Friday (Aug 10) night from a maintenance area at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

It crashed about an hour after it was stolen and did not hit any ground structures.

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