Airline Workersteals plane and later Crashes it in seattle

A plane has crashed after an employee carried out an “unauthorized takeoff” at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (Sea-Tac) on Friday night.

Sea-Tac airport confirmed the news in a tweet.

Alaska Airlines said on its blog that the pilot was likely a ground service agent working for Horizon Air.

The plane was taken when it was “in a maintenance position” and it wasn’t scheduled to be used for passenger flight, the airline added.

It crashed about an hour after takeoff, But the plane was said to have no other occupants other than the pilot.

The plane was a Horizon Air Q400, according to Alaska Airlines.

It crashed into Ketron Island, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.

Preliminary info from the sheriff’s office said the crash happened after a mechanic stole it, and caused the incident either by doing stunts in the air or through a lack of flying skills.

The sheriff’s department went on to say that two F-15s chased the plane but that they weren’t involved in the crash.

The F-15s were on the scene “within a few minutes” of the plane’s theft, the department said.

Videos had earlier emerged on social media that showed a plane travelling through the sky over Chambers Bay, followed by what looked like a military jet.

Further information on the identity of the Pilot is yet to be unraveled.
