Alaska Airlines plane stolen from Sea-Tac Airport

Plane stolen from Sea-Tac Airport crashes on island

So I get home from work, and immediately see this thing about a plane being stolen from Sea-Tac Airport. From the looks of it the only one dead is the pilot, who crashed onto a small island. He apparently did some loops and barrel roles in a Bombardier Dash 8. It's some pretty crazy stuff.

Here are some videos

Well it has crashed in an uninhabited area now, it's over. Methinks the guy had a mental break that led to him doing quite frankly bizarre and ridiculous behavior that resulted in his death. And trust me, by the looks of that burning wreckage that has broken up into tiny pieces then the guy is dead.

Listened to the audio recording, with this in the background.

That was sad. That was really sad. I wouldn't classify him as mentally insane, just tired with the modern world. I felt really broken after hearing that. Listening to how calm and carefree he was while flying the plane was changing. He must've legitimately felt free from the shackles of low-end work. Must've felt "in-control" for once in his life.

Rest in Peace, Horizon Worker.

He has clearly gone off the deep end judging by that recording, he starts talking about going to see orca whales towards the end...

That is some pretty insane stuff.

Judging from the audio... he seemed like a nice enough person actually. Just one of the poor, the tired, yearning to breathe free. At least his suicide didn't involve shooting up a crowded place. Rest in peace, Rich.
Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

Rest in Peace, my man...

Hearing that audio recording is heart-breaking. The guy got some issues, but at the same time, he sounds like a swell guy that did not want to hurt anyone. Maybe he just wanted to try this flying thing out before going out.

And to quote one of the comments from YT: He wasn't homicidal; he was suicidal.

I would go to the benefit of the doubt and say that he damaged and destroyed the property of a corporation. And this is a really huge stretch.

If anything, he is pretty selfless, if you think about it. The guy probably wanted to do this for a long time and he had enough of people pushing him around, so rather than crash-landing onto whatever group of people or into some building, he went out on his own.

I'm not condoning suicide, but for some people, enough is enough, and they just have to escape. And it's easier said than done, but probably why you should seek help as soon as possible.

That’s why I respect the guy.
He didn’t crash into the city, or any populated area.
He went out on his own, in style.

God speed, “Rich”.

Reminds me of the time where I was kicked by an Islamic woman in NYC.
Told my class, someone shouted “Why didn’t you kick her back?!!”

Attention-seeking shit that she was.

In what way?

He destroyed an aircraft which will come out of other people's pockets. He may have screwed up schedules causing lots of other people problems. He risked crashing
possibly killing other people. Fuck him.

He has a point.
Airspace over Seattle was closed, fucking up landings and takeoffs for other aircraft.


Still respect the guy, though.
Absolute badass.

Why is there is some major An Hero bullshit going on in relation to this guy? The guy stole a plane, started talking really weirdly, then crashed the plane. The guy doesn't need praise, he should be pitied, pitied for the fact that he couldn't get the required help for a clear mental disorder.
