more about the daring theft of a turbo-prop airliner by an airport ground worker with no pilot training.. 29 year old richard russell died in the crash. ninety minutes of drama in the air ... russell says he learned to fly by playing video games. somehow he was able to steal a turboprop airliner from a maintenance area at sea=tac airport and put the plane through meaneuvers it was never designed to perform. russell died after crashing into a sparsely populated island 30 miles away. sea=tac officials say he was able to evade strict security measures. security protocols were handled securely at the airport /// it was an aberration.that aberration allowed russell ... a ground worker handling baggage ... to climb into the cockpit of a 76=passenger airliner, flip all the right switches to start the engines, taxi onto the runway and take off.... all air traffic controllers could do is keep other planes out of his way. "there's a ground stop no one is departing right now.//they are working out an issue close to our air space."jet natthe oregon air national guard
6:10 pm
scrambled a pair of f-15 fighters to monitor russell as he threw the plane into acrobatic loops and rolls. "hey, pilot guy! can this thing do a back-flip you think?" /// think i'm going to try and do a barrel roll. and if that goes good, i think i'm going to nose down.at first people on the ground thought they were watching a practice run for an air show. all of a sudden, the pilot pulls the stick back and he went into a complete loop. and, i though 'my god! he's going to stall this thing and crash.' he was able to get it controlled, leveled back off. and he was probably, i'm going to guess, maybe no less than 100 feet or so above the water and he was coming straight toward me. and i thought my god, i gotta get ready to run. if he doesn't know what he's doing, he's going to kill somebody.""man i am sorry about this, hope i didn't ruin your day.from the cockpit, russell apologized for disrupting air traffic.... and worried about the consequences. "this is like jail time for life huh?"ignoring pleas to land, he sent the plane into a line of 100=foot pines ... after radioing his own obituuary. "just a broken guy. got a few screws loose, i guess. never really knew it, until now."
