Wonder what happened inside the stolen Horizon Air Q400 airplane in Washington state?
Pierce County Sheriff Paul Pastor said the man "did something foolish and may well have paid with his life".
Officials said Saturday that the man was a 3.5-year Horizon Airlines employee and had clearance to be among aircraft, but that to their knowledge, he wasn't a licensed pilot.
The fighter jets flew at supersonic speed, triggering a boom first taken to be an explosion, as they raced to intercept the plane.
Ultimately, the man crash landed the hijacked Horizon Air Q400 plane after being coaxed by air traffic controllers, but audio and witness accounts paint a disturbing scene. Just a broken guy. He mentioned "having a few screws loose" and demonstrated signs of suicidal ideation.
Beck marvelled at the amateur piloting. He shouldn't have been able to board the plane alone and go unnoticed. "I would hope it is for a guy like me".
Ground control advises him to wait.
Minutes later the jet crashed into the islands in a ball of flames. Moments later they heard an explosion.
The air controller tells him there is a runway just off to his right "in about a mile [1.6km]", referring to a military airfield at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

The wooded area is hard to access, and because there are no fire engines on the island, everything has to get to there via ferry, Adams said.
He said the pilot then "pulled pretty much straight up and kind of at an angle", adding he "somehow he got it levelled back off and then made his way down toward the island".
Alaska Airlines said no structures on the ground were damaged. "We're working to confirm who was on board, we believe there were no guests or crew on board other than the person operating the plane". "We don't know how he learned to do that". The crash sparked a 2-acre wildfire.
"We have multiple 911 calls, over 30, reporting a fireball", Troyer said. "Uploading and downloading the plane", said Halbert.
Two military F-15s were scrambled to chase the stolen plane, but officials said the jets were not involved in the crash. The plane had an unauthorized takeoff from Sea-Tac Airport at around 8:00 p.m., and then crashed.

"Dozens of personnel were out at the crash site, and co-workers and family members were being interviewed", he said.
"It was unfathomable, it was something out of a movie", he told the newspaper. 'The smoke lingered. You could still hear the F-15s, which were flying low'.
