An airline employee stole an empty passenger plane at SeaTac International Airport and crashed into an island on the Puget Sound, the airport confirmed late Friday evening.
Shortly after the as-yet-unidentified pilot took off with the jet, Alaska Airlines Tweeted that “We are aware of an incident involving an unauthorized take-off of a Horizon Air Q400. We believe there are no passengers on board.”
Multiple outlets reported that two F-15s were dispatched to intercept the plane and try and force the rogue pilot to land.
