  • Airliner reported hijacked in Washington

A Sea-Tac Airport spokesperson says it was one the airline's employees who conducted the unauthorized takeoff.

A Horizon Air plane was reportedly hijacked from a Sea-Tac Airport runway Friday night and was flown around until it eventually crashed in Ketron Island outside of Seattle, according to Federal Aviation Association sources. "Normal operations at Sea-Tac Airport have resumed", Seattle-Tacoma International Airport tweeted.

In a statement on Twitter the airline said: "We are aware of an incident involving an unauthorized take-off of a Horizon Air Q400".

The sheriff's department said the employee who stole the plane was "a suicidal male".

Mr Pastor confirmed the man acted alone and confirmed there were no passengers on board the plane. Eventually the plane crashed in a remote wooded area of Ketron Island in Puget Sound, leaving behind a fiery pile of debris.

Alaska Airlines on Twitter said the airplane was a Q400 airplane belonging to Horizon Air.

The Q400 is a twin-prop aeroplane with up to 78 seats, depending on configuration.

The air traffic controller can also be heard trying to talk him into landing.

Gov. Jay Inslee thanked the Air National Guard from Washington and OR for scrambling jets and said in a statement "there are still a lot of unknowns surrounding tonight's tragic incident". The F-15s were scrambled from Portland and were not involved in the crash. An Alaska Air spokesman said he did not have information about how the incident occurred.

The governor of Washington, Jay Inslee, thanked the Air National Guard from Washington and OR on Twitter "for scrambling jets to keep Washingtonians safe". Just a broken guy, got a few screws loose, I guess.

"We can see evidence of fire on the hillside here on this island", he said in a reporter standup.

"I got a lot of people that care about me", he said on the recording.
