Dude just stole a Horizon Air Q400 from SeaTac, got chased by fighter jets, and crashed it into an island in the Puget Sound this evening.

Wonder if it crashed because it was shot down or because suicide.

No indication of it being shot down. All official stories saying the jets were not involved. Sounds like he stalled it out or broke it up being a doofus.

What a way to go.

This guy is honestly a legend. Sad, but he didn't take anyone with him, so as richde would say "no harm no foul". And he sounded like he was enjoying every second of it. I'm betting his original desire was to be a pilot, but for whatever reason that was not going to happen. So he said **** it and forced the issue.

ATC offered to let him land at McChord in one of the clips and he told them he did not want to go to prison for the rest of his life. In another clip he explained his intention was to take the plane up, do some rolls, and then put it into the water.

F15s were caught and posted leaving Portland on their way to intercept. Lots of reports of sonic booms in SW Washington tonight as they shot by.

Air traffic controllers were in contact with the pilot during his flight. At one point, they tried to convince him to land the plane at the McChord runway at JBLM.

Controller: "There is the runway just off to your right side in about a mile. Do you seen that? That's the McChord field."

Pilot: "Oh man, those guys will rough me up if I tried landing there. I think I might mess something up there, too. I wouldn't want to do that. They probably got anti-aircraft!"

Controller: "Nah, they don't have any of that stuff. We're just trying to find a place for you to land safely."

Pilot: "Yeah, I'm not quite ready to bring it down just yet. Holy smokes! I gotta quick looking at the fuel 'cause it's going down quick."

Controller: "If you could, could you start a left hand turn? And we'll take you down to the southeast please."

Pilot: "This is probably jail time for life, huh? I would hope it is for a guy like me."

The entire audio is worth listening to. He brings up video games multiple times. The ATC is joined by a pilot who attempts to talk him into landing, but he makes it clear he never had any intention of doing that. The ATC should get a raise and promotion for sure.

He did a pretty ****ty thing. But this is the US. We should just be thankful he didn't pick up a gun and go commit a mass shooting. The audio makes it clear he never had any intention of hurting anyone else. He ****ing asks to go see the orca with her dead calf that has been in the news here too. I don't even....

He was endangering other lives. You want to kill yourself in a spectacular fashion? Sure, go do it.

Just don't put my life on the line while doing so.

I'm really surprised the audio didn't contain the words broski or doggo once.

Hey, pilot guy! Can this thing do a backflip, do you think?

I feel like I need to be...what do you think? Like 5,000 feet at least to be able to pull this barrel roll off?

Yes, you've made that very clear.

*suicidal guy In a simultaneously happy voice* "I'm gonna land it, in a safe kinda manner. I think I'm gonna try to do a barrel roll, and if that goes good, I'm just gonna nose it down and call it a night."

This guy is a ****ing legend.

ugh

“I’ve got a lot of people that care about me. It’s going to disappoint them to hear that I did this. I would like to apologize to each and every one of them. Just a broken guy, got a few screws loose, I guess. Never really knew it until now.”
