Security alert at Seattle's SeaTac airport after plane took off without permission
The sheriff's office also said that the F-15s, which were scrambled out of Portland, in the nearby state of OR, arrived minutes after the plane was stolen and kept the aircraft "out of harms way and people on ground safe".
Horizon Air is part of Alaska Air Group and operates shorter routes throughout the US West.
"We believe there are no passengers on board", the tweet said.
A Horizon Q400 made an unauthorized takeoff from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Friday night and crashed in the south Puget Sound, according to Alaska Airlines.
No passengers were onboard during the incident and normal operations have resumed at the airfield, the airport said on Twitter.
According to the mercurynews.com, witnesses reported seeing the Bombardier Q400, a turboprop aircraft, perform a loop-the-loop and almost slam into Chambers Bay, all while being pursued by fighter jets.
Liverpool finish pre-season by beating Torino
Although new goalkeeper Alisson started the game in goal, he was replaced by Loris Karius in the closing stages. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said Karius' warm reception would be a boost to the club's entire goalkeeping cadre.
The airport tweeted that the person at the controls of the plane was "an airline employee" but gave no further information about that person, the aircraft or the airline.
The sheriff's office confirmed that F-15 fighter jets were scrambled to keep the plane out of harm's way and "people on the ground safe". "I was kind of hoping that was going to be it, you know". Eventually the plane crashed in a remote wooded area of Ketron Island in Puget Sound, leaving behind a fiery pile of debris.
"I would like to apologize to each and every one of them", the man added.
In audio recordings with air traffic controllers, the man said he didn't want to disappoint them but that he was "just a broken guy, got a few screws loose, I guess". As a ground service agent, employees work directing aircraft for takeoff, gate approach and de-icing planes. He said he didn't see the crash but saw smoke.
I want to thank the Air National Guard from Washington and OR for scrambling jets to keep Washingtonians safe.
