'Suicidal' man steals and crashes empty plane from Seattle airportTwo military F-15 jets were scrambled late Friday after a “suicidal” airline worker stole and later crashed an empty passenger plane from the Seattle-Tacoma airport, local officials said. An airline employee “conducted an unauthorized takeoff” of an airplane carrying no passengers at the major airport in the northwestern US state of Washington, airport officials said on Twitter. The aircraft “crashed in south Puget Sound,” Sea-Tac Airport said, adding that normal operations at the transport hub had resumed after a pause.
