(grant) federal investigators are trying to figure out how a seattle airport employee stole - and crashed a commercial plane. and tonight new audio released by air traffic controllers reveals the frantic moments before the plane went down.(grant) thanks for joining us, i'm grant lodes...(vicki) and i'm vicki livakis... the man has been identified as 29-year-old richard russell... he died in the crash... he was an airport ground worker and had ááno pilot training.. (grant) from our partner's at c-n-n reporter kyung lah has more on the air traffic controllers audio tapes... atc:"the dash 8 on runway 1-6 center, say your call sign." "who's the dash 8 holding on 16 center?"new audio from the first moments that ground controllers realized they had a big problem rolling down the taxiwaya ground controller repeatedly tries and fails to make contact with a rogue horizon air q-400.atc:"i'm not even talking to him.""he came
flying out of the cargo area from delta.""you need to call and scramble now.""yeah, we are."that's the moment officials call for military fighter jets... to intercept 29-year old richard russell... a horizon-air ground crew worker, who stole the plane without a pilot's license. richard russell:"hey pilot guy, can this thing do a back flip, do you think? // nah, i mean i don't need that much help. i've played video games before."but after about an hour in the air, russell makes clear he's not landing.atc: "now let's try to land that airplane safely and not hurt anybody on the ground."richard russell:"alright, ahh dammit. i don't know, man, i don't know // i don't want to. i was kind of hoping that was going to be it you know // just a broken guy, got a few scre loose i guess. never really knew it, until now."the plane crashed on a small island... exploding in dense woods, killing russell.the rogue takeoff raises the stakes for concerns about so-called "insider attacks" -- that criminals working as airline employees might be planning to do much more harm next time. the airline c-e-o says russell managed planes from the maintenance area by himself. he was in uniform, had the proper credentials and access. seattle airport officials say all security protocols were followed on the ground. security, they say, is tighter even than what is required by
law. courtney gregoire/port of seattle commissioner:"and i think this is really, truly a one in a million experience. that doesn't mean we can't learn from it and ensure this type of tragedy doesn't happen again."the wider concern is for hundreds of thousands of employees who don't undergo constant close checks like those required for pilots.a 2017 house homeland security committee report warned potential terrorists could take advantage of ground vulnerabilities. a bipartisan bill tightening employee checks passed the house - and is stalled in the senate.kyung lah/cnn:"how do you stop any of this from happening?"gael tarleton/former port of seattle commissioner:"the only way to stop it is ignition lock devices on the engine itself. a pilot has to have the authority to use the ignition. and if they do not have the authority to use the ignition, then the plane should not turn on." not turn on." the plane should the ignition, then the plane
should not turn on." (grant) that was kyung lah reporting...(vicki) the f-b-i says it doesn't consider the incident terror related. (vicki) the stolen plane heist has raised some serious safety questions across the country....(grant) tonight we talked with a retired pilot who flew commercially for 35-years and flew in the military for many more. kron 4's j.r. stone is following the story and joins us live at s-f-o. j.r. what was this pilot's reaction after seeing what happened last friday? (j.r.)well he says nothing surprises him anymore. he's been aware of past situations involving stolen military planes in other countries but had never heard about something like this involving a commercial jet.i spoke with
chris zwingle. while he is retired he still flies today. he was a commercial pilot for 35 years. zwingle said that the video showing that airplane in the air after it was stolen shows some impressive air work by richard russell. here he was flying an empty 76 seat passenger plane. now during the back and forth between russell and air traffic control he claimed that he played video games so he knew what he was doing. i asked zwingle what his thought on that was.well that's a heck of a video game and i've got to get it. i think there's got to be more to it than that. there's gotta be some type of detailed training that he not necessarily took but he studied something i don't think you're going to get the ability to fly like he did off a video game but i could be mistaken.i also spoke with zwingle about some of the security features on board that type of aircraft. we'll talk about that tonight at 10. live at sfo, j.r. stone kron 4 news.

reid spoke with them this evening and joins us live from fremont... ali, have they been able to shake it all off? they're still processing what happened over the weekend.it's not every day that you're driving down the freeway and you see a plane hovering over cars while trying to land.the husband and wife duo tells me the scary part about the entire thing, was that the plane's engine was completely silent... so there was no warning that it was directly above.and it's not clear if some of the other cars had any idea the plane was about to make a crash landing.it's still surprising to many, how the pilot was able to land with no issues whatsoever.eric and brandi geer were driving eastbound on 238, and just before the 580 north interchange they saw the small one-engine plane slowing
landing on the freeway. eric jumped into action and tried warning other cars on the freeway by putting on his hazard lights and swerving. he noticed other cars ahead were doing the same in order to slow traffic and give the pilot room to land safely.the couple later noticed the plane's gas pipe was leaking uncontrollably, and so it was a miracle no one was injured. sot i asked the couple how they managed to jump into action as soon as they did... eric told me his boys scout trainng kicked into gear. reporting live from fremont ... ali reid .... kron 4 news.
