An airline employee who stole an empty passenger plane from Seattle airport has crashed on a nearby island. Authorities said the man had made "an unauthorised take-off" late on Friday local time, forcing Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to close. Two F15 fighter jets pursued the plane, which crashed in Puget Sound. The man is not believed to have survived. The local sheriff's office said it was "not a terrorist incident", adding that the man was local and aged 29.

Pierce County Sheriff Paul Pastor later told reporters it appeared to be "a joyride gone terribly wrong", according to ABC7 News, adding "most terrorists don't do loops over the water".

No embed to the Air traffic controller audio attempts to help the hijacker land safely? Missed opportunity, bro.

He should have stolen the plane on 9/11 then there would not have been any fighter jets for a good 4-5 hours to interrupt his joyride...
