Stolen plane crash: ILM Director says too early to predict security changes

The 29-year-old, who was the only person on board the 76-seater aircraft N449QX, took off without clearance from Runway 16C a little after 2000 local time.

Authorities in Seattle, Washington, are responding to an incident involving an aircraft that took off without permission on Friday night.

He flew the plane for more than an hour, saw the sights, did some risky aerobatic maneuvers and ultimately crashed on Ketron Island while F-15 fighter jets patrolled the skies.

A plane that reportedly took off without permission has sparked a major security incident at Seattle-Tacoma worldwide airport. The jets were armed but did not open fire, North American Aerospace Defense Command spokesman Cameron Hillier said by phone. We believe he was in uniform.

Russell's role at Horizon, an Alaska Airlines affiliate where he had worked since 2015, involved towing aircraft, loading and unloading cargo and luggage, and cleaning the aircraft, officials said.

"Our airport director, our head of security (and) our airport operations team have been on the phone with lots of airports", Gregoire told reporters Monday. His name has not been released.

Airports and airlines conduct background checks, but Stratman said they don't include mental health screenings.

‘Pixel Stand’ to be Google’s new smart dock for Pixel 3
Of note is that apparently the back features a single piece of glass, but the top part is glossy, while the rest is matte. We had a hint at these designs back in May when some tempered glass screen protectors for the Pixel 3 and 3XL were leaked.

The airline tells The Associated Press that the plane was a Horizon Air Q400 and it believed no passengers were on board. There were no passengers aboard.

We reached out to Alaska Airlines who owns Horizon about how many people they require to tow a plane. Those employees direct aircraft for takeoff and gate approach and de-ice planes.

"We're fortunate in the sense that it wasn't a terrorist, someone focused on causing mass destruction", former TSA administrator John Pistole said.

While it was still too early to know exactly the full details of what took place as the investigation was in its early stages, Professor Greg Bamber from Monash University said the initial indications were that it was a one-off event. Video showed fiery flames amidst trees on the island, which is sparsely populated and only accessible by ferry.

Erroll Southers says Saturday that the unidentified man represents one of the greatest threats to aviation by being an insider cleared to have access to aircraft.

Sheriff's officials say a man who stole an Alaska Airlines plane from an airport in Washington state was "suicidal" and there is no connection to terrorism. He was only identified as an employee for Horizon Air, in a statement by Alaska Air Group CEO Brad Tilden.
