Some 29-year old airport baggage handler at Alaska just stole a Q400 from Sea-Tac and took it on an insane and dangerous joyride, flying at high speeds at low altitudes and doing freaking loops in it. F-15's were scrambled, intercepted it, and then the Q400 crashed. Some are speculating the F-15's shot it down, but it's unconfirmed. The Q400 crashed on rural Ketron Island, luckily no one on the ground was killed.
You can't make this crap up. HOW did this dude steal a regional turboprop from a busy as heck airport like Sea-Tac!!!???
UPDATE: He's not a mechanic, he was a baggage handler, so that's probably how he had such easy access to a Q400. Also, the Q400 took off with very little fuel, so the pilot didn't have much flight time and most likely crashed due to fuel starvation.
