    A HORIZON AIR AIRPLANE STOLEN
    OUTSIDE OF SEATTLE.
    A PLANE HAS CRASHED ON A NEARBY
    ISLAND.
    CRASHING ON AN ISLAND JEFF
    NGUYEN HAS MORE FROM THE
    NEWSROOM.
    THE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT SAYS
    IT WAS A MECHANIC FROM AN
    UNKNOWN AIRLINE THAT TOOK OFF
    WITH THAT PLANE.
    THIS IS A LOOK AT THE CRASH
    SCENE ON THE ISLAND FROM OUR CBS
    AFFILIATE IN SEATTLE.
    IT APPEARS THAT THE PLANE CAUGHT
    FIRE AFTER THEY HIT THE GROUND.
    A 29-YEAR-OLD MAN TOOK THE
    PLANE, INVESTIGATORS SAY THAT
    THE MAN WAS SUICIDAL.
    AT THIS POINT THEY DO NOT
    BELIEVE THAT IT WAS A TERRORIST
    INCIDENT.
    THE INVESTIGATORS SAY THAT HE
    WAS EITHER DOING STUNTS OR DID
    NOT KNOW HOW TO FLY THE PLANE
    WHICH COST IT TO SLAM INTO THE
    ISLAND.
    RIGHT NOW WE HAVE VIDEO CAUGHT
    BY WITNESSES MOMENTS BEFORE THE
    CRASH TOOK PLACE.
    THAT IS NOT A DRONE, THAT IS
    A REAL PLANE.
    INTERESTED A LOOP.
    THAT IS A FIGHTER JET.
    A PLUME OF SMOKE COULD BE
    SEEN RISING AFTER THE CRASH.
    TWO MILITARY JETS WERE CHASING
    THE PLANE, BUT THE SHERIFF'S
    DEPARTMENT SAYS THAT THEY WERE
    NOT INVOLVED IN THE CRASH.
    WHAT THE PERSON SAW.
    EARLIER THIS
    ALASKA AIRLINES PLANE FLYING
    OVER UNIVERSITY PLACE.
    PROBABLY LESS THAN A THOUSAND
    FEET OFF OF THE DECK.
    NO SOONER THAN THAT I SAW TWO OF
    THEM SCRAMBLING.
    PROBABLY ON A SURVEILLANCE,
    FLYING REALLY HIGH SO THEY COULD
    SEE IT.
    AND THEN THEY DID A CIRCLE
    AROUND UNIVERSITY PLACE AND CAME
    BACK OVER BY THE HIGH SCHOOL AND
    FLEW WEST OVER THE SOUND IN THE
    GIVE AND CHASE.
    ONE WAS LOW AND ONE WAS HIGH AND
    THEN THEY FOLLOWED IT AROUND.
    I COULD NOT SEE ANYMORE
    CONTINUED ON THE WALK AND THEN
    WE HEARD IN THE DISTANCE THIS
    PROP PLANE TURNING REALLY HARD,
    LOUD NOISES LIKE IT WAS LOW OVER
    THE GROUND.
    YOU COULD HEAR WHERE WAS BEHIND
    THE TREES DOWN BELOW.
    WE WANT TO SHOW YOU THAT THIS
    IS A TYPE OF PLANE THAT WAS
    STOLEN.
    IT IS OPERATED BY ALASKA
    AIRLINES AND THEY STOPPED ALL
    DEPARTING FLIGHTS WERE ABOUT 45
    MINUTES AND THE PLANE WAS IN THE
    AIR, SEVERAL OTHER PASSENGERS
    FROM OTHER AIRCRAFT STARTED
    TWEETED PICTURES ON THE TARMAC.
    NO ARRIVAL FLIGHTS AFFECTED
    EARLIER.
    EARLIER THIS EVENING FROM A
    VERIFIED TWITTER ACCOUNT.
    ALASKA AIRLINES SAID THAT WE ARE
    AWARE OF AN INCIDENT INVOLVING
    AN UNAUTHORIZED TAKEOFF OF A
    HORIZON AIR PLANE.
    WE BELIEVE THERE ARE NO
    PASSENGERS ON BOARD.
