Horizon Employee Conveyed Flying Knowledge to Air-Traffic Controllers

A Horizon Q400 airplane

The 29-year-old unnamed suspect allegedly stole a Horizon Air turboprop, a 76-seat plane, from Sea-Tac International Airport, according to The Associated Press.

Officials from Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air said they were still working closely with authorities as they investigate what happened.

Jeremy Kaelin said he worked with Russell, a ground service agent at Horizon Air, in 2016.

The plane was chased by military aircraft, witnesses said. Russell "had access legitimately" to the plane, Mike Ehl, director of aviation operations at the airport in the northwestern U.S. state of Washington said, adding that "no security violations were committed".

Mr Waldron said the plane at its lowest point was no more than 100ft (30.5m) above the water. "They probably got anti-aircraft!"

"Commercial aircraft are complex machines", Beck said.

This will be a major learning event for the aviation industry, CNN aviation analyst Justin Green said.

On a SoundCloud site, Russell interviews fellow ground service agents, asking them questions that include: "What was one of your best travel experiences using your flight benefits?" He mentioned "having a few screws loose" and demonstrated signs of suicidal ideation.

He then said: "I wouldn't know how to land - I wasn't really planning on landing it".

"It may seem hard for those watching at home to believe, but Beebo was a warm, compassionate man", Mathews said. It did not elaborate.

"Oh, man, those guys will rough me up if I try and land there", the man says.

Later on the pilot says: "I've got a lot of people that care about me". We're trying to get accurate information about what is actually going on.

"Could you start a left turn and we'll take you down to the SE, please", the air traffic controller then asked. There were no other people on board, and the man piloting the plane has not been recovered.

"I don't need that much help". "I've played video games before, so I know what I'm doing a little bit".

The Perseid meteor shower is going to be incredible this weekend
The Perseids meteor shower is basically a mass of shooting stars, which light up the skies for avid stargazers below each year. This weekend will be the best time to view the event with its maximum peak on Sunday night and Monday morning.

Fortunately, the only death in the crash was the unnamed joyrider, who still has not yet been named, although air-traffic controllers call him "Rich" during their exchanges.

It is not believed that the man had any assistance in his theft, but authorities are still looking into how exactly he was able to gain control of the airplane. "I don't know what the burnage is like on takeoff, but it burned quite a bit faster than I expected". "I don't want to".

He added: "I'm sorry about this, I hope it doesn't ruin your day [.]".

The Coast Guard confirms that the plane crashed on Ketron Island, just off the shores of Steilacoom. The fuselage was fragmented and appeared to be upside down, said Debra Eckrote, regional chief for the National Transportation Safety Board.

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.

"I want to thank the Air National Guard from Washington and OR for scrambling jets to keep Washingtonians safe", Inslee tweeted, adding: "Those pilots are trained for moments like tonight and showed they are ready and capable". Officials said there were no victims on the ground.

The FBI is involved in the investigation, Troyer said.

Eckrote said the plane went down in an area covered with heavy brush and trees.

Witnesses reported seeing the plane being chased by military aircraft near the airport.

The Bombardier Dash-8 Q400 crashed into Ketron Island south of Tacoma, the sheriff's office said.

Kethleen Reichel said she watched the planes pass by for about two minutes.

It wasn't immediately clear what training, if any, the man had in flying planes. At the Alaska Airlines terminal, it was a hushed Friday night.

"Congratulations, you did it", the control tower tells him, according to an audio feed aired on CNN.

Officials say the stolen turbojet was in the north part of the airport and was not scheduled for flights last night.
