‘Suicidal’ mechanic steals plane from Seattle airport

A Horizon Q400

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

An airline mechanic stole an Alaska Airlines plane without any passengers and took off from Sea-Tac International Airport in Washington state on Friday night before crashing near Ketron Island, officials said.

Horizon Air COO Constance van Mouhlen said "One of our airplanes made an unauthorised take-off". We know who he is. "No others involved", Pierce County Sheriff Paul Pastor said.

An air traffic control operator attempted to guide the man to Joint-Base Lewis McChord: "We're just trying to find a place for you to land safely", the operator said.

According to the mercurynews.com, witnesses reported seeing the Bombardier Q400, a turboprop aircraft, perform a loop-the-loop and almost slam into Chambers Bay, all while being pursued by fighter jets.

"Pilots kept plane out of harm's way and people on ground safe", the sheriff said on Twitter.

"I hit some turbulence around Rainier but there were no clouds there", the pilot says.

The suspect was identified as a 29-year-old Pierce county resident who "acted alone", the sheriff's office added, confirming that there were "no passengers on the plane" when it crashed. Preliminary info is that a mechanic from unknown airlines stole plane.

Jenkins described the island as remote, dark and sparsely populated.

Normal operations at the airport were interrupted for a time by the unauthorized takeoff but have resumed, the airport said in its tweet. "We saw the jets circle back after and she texted that there was no plane".

"I don't want to", Rich says in an elated tone. "I would like to apologise to each and every one of them", he said. They pursued the aircraft before it went down on Ketron Island between Tacoma and Olympia.
