Friends from Orting,Wa. area where I grew up reported seeing it right above houses/trees and said it was completely nuts how low he was with two F-16 near him watching.

This is wild stuff!

Alaska Airlines plane stolen ATC recording

I've been listening to the ATC recordings of the incident, this guy really was nuts. He was so calm, in no way was he in his right mind. Very sad.

He can fly it because he plays video games. Well that didn't work out well at all. Bet it comes out that he was being treated for some issues. Sounds like some sort of hypnotic state of mind, let's see, which popular prescription sleep med is classified as a hypnotic ... hummm... The calmness seems to indicate being under the influence of something.

Yikes, that's not something you see every day. Aircraft Mechanics are very unlikely candidates for such behavior. Much like the concealed weapons permit folks rarely engaging in criminal activity, Aircraft Mechanics are overwhelmingly conscientious people.

I've met a few dummies that probably should not have passed the A+P test, but I've never met a truly crazy Aircraft Mechanic. Maybe crazy people simply don't want to spend years in the classroom learning how to maintain aircraft, only to blow it in a blaze of glory.

EDIT: It seems he was a ground service agent, possibly not a mechanic.

Yup ground crews are an entirely different batch of folks but sad this guy felt like he had to go this way.

Lets hope this doesn’t inspire copy cats.

Not really any different then many places but if that makes you feel better.

Working people with mental health issues are everywhere amongst us. Our local one was a contractor who wanted to go home so he set a small fire in Navy nuke submarine causing a $200 million loss to Navy fleet.

Just plane and sadly one suicidal person and no else hurt.

I think this guy knew precisely what he was doing. He went out and took a look around, did his barrel rolls and then nose dived into a secluded area where nobody else would be harmed. He stated all through his conversation that he didn't want to harm anyone else.

It is a shame that people reach this level of desperation at such a young age. He had his whole life ahead of him and he felt this was the only way out.
