Seattle Airport Worker Steals and Crashes Plane
An airline worker at an international airport in Seattle, Washington stole a commercial aircraft over the weekend, taking it for an hour-long joyride before crashing it into an island in the Puget Sound. The Horizon Air employee was a ground service agent and admitted to an air traffic controller that he learned what he knew about flying from video games. After attempting stunts and flying over a highly populated area, 29-year-old Richard Russell crashed the 76-seater and died. It is unknown whether the crash was intentional or accidental. Officials believe no other passengers or crew were on board.
