Local police said that they had identified the man as a 29-year-old from Pierce County who had acted alone. The joyride came to an end when he crashed the plane into Ketron Island, a small island southwest of Tacoma. Some unconfirmed reports on social media said he was believed to be an airline mechanic.

A Horizon Air Bombardier Dash 8 Q400, reported to be hijacked, flies over Fircrest, Washington, the us, before crashing in the South Puget Sound, August 10, 2018 in this still image taken from a video obtained from social media. The man's condition wasn't immediately known.

The pilot marvels at the beauty of the Olympics.

"This is probably jail time for life, huh?" he asks. "Can this thing do a black flip thing?".

During another part of the exchange, the man said he was concerned he was going to run low on fuel.

Ground control advises him to wait.

Ketron Island has few residents. The Horizon airplane was followed by two F15 jets which attempted to escort the stolen aircraft back to Sea-Tac.

The wooded area is hard to access, and because there are no fire engines on the island, everything has to get to there via ferry, Adams said. They even got a Q400 pilot in to help with instructions.

The regional airline is based in the Seattle-Tacoma airport and it's owned by the Alaska Air Group.

"We've confirmed a Horizon Air Q400 that had an unauthorized takeoff from SeaTac around 8pm has gone down near Ketron Island in Pierce County, WA", the USA airline tweeted. No passengers or crew were on board. "More information as we learn more". He died when the plane crashed after a 90 minutes "joy ride".

Troyer said he is working in conjunction "with Federal Bureau of Investigation and Military". "Witnesses said a. plane is going down". We're trying to contact the military. "We are sending resources and people".

A Horizon Air Q400 plane, flown without Seattle Airport traffic controller authorization, has reportedly performed several aerobatic tricks and crashed after at least one F-15 jet was reportedly sent to intercept it.

Alaska Airlines and Sea-Tac Airport confirmed there was an "unauthorized takeoff" of a plane from the airport Friday evening. Pierce County Sheriff Paul Pastor estimated that about 12 people live on the island.

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

"I was getting prepared to run just in case", he said. I would like to apologise to each and every one of them. "Never really knew it until now". Military jets were scrambled from Portland, but it does not appear that these jets were involved in the crash of the Horizon aircraft.

Two F-15s were scrambled from OR to give chase to the plane. He knew something was off, he said.

"I was walking past Chambers Bay and I saw the jets coming down to the trees very close ..." a witness told KIRO 7.
