The aircraft reportedly crashed near Ketron Island near the Chambers Bay Golf Course

A commercial aircraft has crashed after a "suicidal" airline employee stole the empty plane and performed stunt manoeuvres near Seattle.

Authorities didn't name the employee.

The sheriff's department said the employee who stole the plane was "a suicidal male". "We saw the jets circle back after and she texted that there was no plane".

Horizon Air is operated by Alaska Air Group.

Local authorities quickly ruled out terrorism as a motive for the incident, and said the F-15s "were not involved in the crash".

Witnesses had described a jet being chased by military planes near the airport before the crash. I would like to apologize to each and every one of them.

Flights were grounded with some passengers tweeting that their plane stopped abruptly on the runway. Looking up, people saw what turned out to be a stolen airplane flanked by a couple of F-15s.

"The central government in Kabul said the situation in Ghazni was under their control, but we managed to contact officials in Ghazni who said that fighting was underway in areas surrounding Ghazni", said the parliamentarian.

I want to thank the Air National Guard from Washington and OR for scrambling jets to keep Washingtonians safe. They did not specify whether or not it was a pilot.

Waldron said it seemed that the jets were chasing down the aeroplane.

At another point, Rich said "I've got a lot of people that care about me". "But in the end the man flying the stolen plane crashed on Ketron Island".

Early reports indicated the suspect was speaking to air traffic controllers.

"Alright", the man in the airplane responds. The man's condition wasn't immediately known. I don't know! I don't want to. "But holy smokes, I got to stop looking at the fuel, because it's going down quick".

The exchange happened during the flight but the timing of the conversation is unclear.

All flights were grounded at Seattle-Tacoma global airport in the United States when a passenger plane took off without permission.

It crashed about an hour later after it was stolen, and did not hit any ground structures.
