An Alaska Airlines plane was stolen from the Sea-Tac International Airport and has since crashed. According to reports, an employee hijacked an airplane and took off from the airport. Details suggest the plane was followed by two F-15 military jets before it crashed shortly after.
Video surfaced online of what allegedly was the scene immediately following the crash.
Another video shows the airplane being followed by a fighter jet. Additional reports suggest the F-15s did not shoot down the stolen plane.
“An airline employee conducted an unauthorized takeoff without passengers at Sea-Tac; aircraft has crashed in south Puget Sound. Normal operations at Sea-Tac Airport have resumed,” the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport wrote.
