Suicidal mechanic steals empty plane from Seattle airport

first_imgThis frame grab taken from footage filmed by bystander John Wauldron on 10 August 2018 with his Galaxy S8 at Chambers Bay Park and Golf Course in University Place Washington, shows an empty passenger airplane, stolen from the Seattle-Tacoma airport, making an unlikely upside-down aerial loop, then flying low over Puget Sound before crashing into the sparsely populated Ketron Island in the northwestern US state of Washington. Photo: AFPA young mechanic described as suicidal stole an empty passenger plane from Seattle-Tacoma Airport, took it on an hour-long flight that included a hair-raising loop as F-15 fighter jets gave chase, then crashed, killing himself.Officials ruled out any link to terrorism in the incident, which took place late on Friday, and saw the man holding a conversation with an air traffic controller in which he seemed to apologize for what he was doing.Video taken by a bystander showed the 76-seat plane making a big, slow loop-the-loop, then flying low over Puget Sound before crashing into Ketron Island, a sparsely-populated area in the northwestern US state of Washington.The crash sparked a fire in the dense forest. Flames lit up the night as they spread from the burning wreckage to nearby trees. Officials said there were no victims on the ground.The stolen plane was a twin-engine turboprop Q400 belonging to Horizon Air, its parent company Alaska Airlines said on Twitter.The Pierce County Sheriff’s office ruled out terrorism.- Joyrider or suicidal? -“Most terrorists don’t do loops over the water,” said Sheriff Paul Pastor. “This might have been a joyride gone terribly wrong.”But Ed Troyer, who also works at the sheriff’s office, described him as “suicidal.”He was identified as a 29-year-old airline mechanic called Rich or Richard, who lived locally and had acted alone. His full name was not given.The sheriff’s office said the F-15s arrived minutes after the plane was stolen and kept the aircraft “out of harm’s way and people on the ground safe.”The fighter jets flew at supersonic speed, triggering a boom first taken to be an explosion, as they raced to intercept the plane.In a video statement, Horizon Air’s chief operating officer Constance von Muehlen said the plane was taken by one of its employees.”We believe (the plane) was taken by a single Horizon Air employee and no other passengers or crew were on board,” she said.The plane was stolen at around 8:00 pm (0300 GMT Saturday) and crashed 90 minutes later, officials said.President Donald Trump was briefed and the White House praised authorities’ quick response to the crisis.- ‘Bizarre’ -John Waldron, who captured the plane’s loop-the-loop on video, told CNN he was out for an evening stroll when he saw two fighter jets following a turboprop plane, initially thinking they were practicing for an air show.”So I started to capture video, just because I thought it was kind of bizarre,” he said, later realizing that the jets were chasing the plane.Then the plane “did a complete loop… I couldn’t believe he recovered.”He estimated that the plane, at its lowest point, was no more than 100 feet (30 meters) above the water.Then the pilot pulled the plane “pretty much straight up. And kind of at an angle. And almost stalled the aircraft. Somehow he got it leveled back off. And then made his way down toward the island.”Waldron said he had been prepared to “run and take cover.” He briefly turned away, then turned back and saw the explosion as the plane crashed.- ‘A broken guy’ -In a conversation with the control tower, the pilot, who identified himself only as “Rich,” came across as excitable, confused, and even apologetic.”Congratulations, you did it,” the control tower tells him, according to an audio feed aired on CNN.”Let’s turn around the air and land it and not hurt anybody on the ground.””I don’t know, man,” the pilot answers. “I don’t want to. I was kind of hoping that was going to be it, you know.”During the conversation, he says he had put some fuel in the plane “to go check out the Olympics” — the Olympic Mountains which lie about 100 miles (160 kilometers) away.But he later worried he was running low, saying the fuel had burned “quite a bit faster than I expected.”The control tower then pushes him to land at a nearby military base.”I wouldn’t want to do that. They probably have anti-aircraft,” he responds.”This is probably jail time for life, huh?” he later says, according to a recording published by the Seattle Times.”I’ve got a lot of people that care about me. It’s going to disappoint them to hear that I did this,” he said.”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.”last_img read more

After A Day Of Legal Shock And Awe Whats Next For The

first_imgAlex Wong/Getty ImagesSpecial counsel Robert Mueller (left) arrives at the U.S. Capitol for closed meeting with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee on June 21 in Washington, D.C.Five months into his mandate, Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller III unleashed a legal version of “shock and awe” on Monday with criminal charges against President Trump’s former campaign chairman and a guilty plea by a foreign policy aide.Mueller made no public comment about the charges or the next steps in an investigation that’s irritating the White House and riveting the nation. But there are some clues in the court documents about where the former FBI director and his investigators may be heading.1. The Foreign Agents Registration ActAmong the charges facing former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his right-hand man Richard Gates is failing to register as agents of a foreign government, and making false and misleading statements about that. The grand jury indictment unsealed Monday accuses the men of working on behalf of Ukraine and telling the Justice Department their activities “did not include meetings or outreach within the U.S.”Those charges are controversial, in part because violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act are rarely enforced. Kevin Downing, a lawyer for Manafort, told reporters outside the courthouse that prosecutors have used that “very novel” charge only six times since 1966, winning just one conviction.On Capitol Hill, however, Senate Republican Charles Grassley of Iowa offered praise for that approach: “It’s good to see the Justice Department taking seriously its responsibility to enforce” the law, Grassley said in a written statement.“I’ve been raising concerns about lackluster enforcement of this foreign influence disclosure law for years now, regardless of administration or political party,” he added. “The dirty little secret is that lots of people across the political spectrum in Washington have skirted their FARA obligations for years now with little to no accountability.”Grassley convened an oversight hearing on the issue in July, flagging work by Mercury LLC and the Podesta Group on behalf of what he calls “a front for the Ukrainian government.” The firms are mentioned in the indictment as “Company A” and “Company B.” A prominent Democratic lobbyist, Tony Podesta, announced he would step down from that firm Monday after the charges became public.At least one other person with ties to the Trump campaign, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, belatedly filed a foreign agent registration with the Justice Department this year connected with his work on behalf of Turkey. He has not been charged with a crime.2. Will Manafort fight?Despite an onslaught of pressure from federal investigators, including an FBI raid on his residence in July, Manafort has steadfastly denied wrongdoing, and people close to Manafort say he has little of use to offer the special counsel.Even so, the 31-page indictment suggests that federal investigators are not finished squeezing him. Authorities want to seize Manafort’s properties in New York and Virginia, at a time when he’s already strapped for cash. The court papers refer to business dealings with Manafort’s daughter and son-in-law, who have not been publicly charged with any crimes.And the Manafort indictment doesn’t refer to contacts between Manafort and Russians with close ties to Vladimir Putin, despite media reports that he emailed with a longtime Ukrainian client in Putin’s camp to offer private briefings on the election.3. Fallout from the Papadopoulos pleaThe guilty plea by George Papadopoulos, a 30-year-old former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, detailed a series of contacts he had with people close to the Russian government in 2016. The court documents said Papadopoulos reported his conversations to a “supervisor” and “high-ranking” members of the campaign team.Investigators said that after his secret arrest in July, Papadopoulos has been meeting with the government “on numerous occasions to provide information and answer questions.”The message: He may be offering evidence against others still under investigation. Other people inside the Trump campaign also are said to have received overtures from Russians or Russian agents at about the same time that Trump named Papadopoulos as an adviser. One of them, Carter Page, traveled to Moscow at least twice last year.Thomas Breen and Robert Stanley, lawyers for Papadopoulos, said they had to refrain from comment on the case for now. But, they added, “We will have the opportunity to comment on George’s involvement when called upon by the court at a later date. We look forward to telling all of the details of George’s story at that time.”4. Will Mueller keep his job?Congressional Democrats reacted quickly after the indictments to insist that the independence of special counsel Mueller and his team must be protected. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said the rule of law is “paramount.”“The president must not, under any circumstances, interfere with the special counsel’s work in any way,” Schumer added. “If he does so, Congress must respond swiftly, unequivocally, and in a bipartisan way to ensure that the investigation continues.”At the White House, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said there was “no intention or plan to make any changes in regards to the special counsel.”Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow told CNN he’s had no conversations with Trump about issuing pardons for Manafort or others implicated in the Russia investigation.But Mueller could charge more people in Trump’s world and bring even more heat onto the president’s camp — which might prompt Trump to revise his thinking about trying to get rid of the special counsel.And legal experts say they don’t know what might happen if Trump exercises his sweeping power to pardon people in a way that obstructs the Mueller probe.Copyright 2017 NPR.
