#BREAKING Alaska Airlines says it is aware of an incident involving an unauthorized take-off of a Horizon Air plane from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

"There are still a lot of unknowns surrounding tonight's tragic incident of a stolen Horizon Airline plane from Sea-Tac Airport", Inslee said.

The two F-15 fighter jets seen intercepting the plane were scrambled out of Portland after the Federal Aviation Administration requested Department of Defense assistance, the military's North American Air Defense Command said.

A MAN has stolen a passenger plane from an airport in the United States and deliberately flown it into the ground after being chased by military fighter jets above Washington.

Horizon Air is part of Alaska Air Group and flies shorter routes throughout the U.S. West.

The plane was a Q400, a Bombardier turboprop plane. I don't know man!

The sheriff's office's public information officer Ed Troyer confirmed the incident was not being treated as a terror attack. Witnesses said a. plane is going down.

Waldron said it seemed that the jets were chasing down the aeroplane.

"I feel like one of my engines is going out or something", Rick said in his last radio transmission, Ostrower reported.

Six other people were arrested along with the couple last autumn - with several men already convicted in separate trials. It said the mother was aware from the start of the man's pedophile tendencies and previous conviction.

"What we have is that someone stole a plane", Troyer said. "We heard the jet because our windows were down while we were waiting in the ferry line to go to Anderson Island which is adjacent to Ketron Island".

"There is no indication that the person flying this plane was trying to damage anything or attack anything", said Sherriff Paul Pastor of Pierce County in a press conference. The employee was a "ground service agent", according to Alaska Airlines.

A "suicidal" airline mechanic stole an empty plane before flying around an airport then crashing near a small island.

Witnesses in the area posted videos to social media showing the 76-passenger plane, meant for short flights, doing unsafe ariel maneuvers while F-15 fighter jets scrambled behind it.

Around 8: 15 p.m., multiple viewers of our sister station in Seattle, KING 5, called to report a hijacked airplane, saying an apparent pilot or airport worker took off with an aircraft.

The airport said normal operations at the airport, which sits between Seattle and Tacoma, had resumed.

"Didn't really know it until now", the man said, according to audio from air traffic controllers.

Air traffic controllers attempted to talk the man into landing at McChord field - but he refused.
