Alaska Air said the F-15s were scrambled from a Portland air base. "NORAD fighters did not fire upon the aircraft". At some airports, including Sea-Tac, they are also subject to physical screenings the way passengers are.

Authorities were reportedly trying to intercept the plane with an F-15 aircraft.

Officials said the plane later crashed into the sea.

On Friday night, the 29-year-old Sumner, Wash., man hijacked a 76-seat Q400 aircraft belonging to Alaska Airlines' regional carrier Horizon Air and performed aerial acrobatics before crashing into the nearby Ketron Island, officials said.

Wonder what happened inside the stolen Horizon Air Q400 airplane in Washington state? The plane wasn't even scheduled to fly at the time of the incident, he said.

The flight data recorder and components of the cockpit voice recorder have been recovered and are with the National Transportation Safety Board, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"It would not be hard for someone to get into an airplane who was that determined to do it", said Shelley Walker, office manager at Revel Aviation.

"There will be a thorough investigation and the aviation industry is good at doing these sorts of investigations in a non-blame way", Prof Bamber told Australian Aviation on Monday. Authorities say that he was suicidal, and luckily no one else was on board.

All departures and arrivals were halted at the busy airport for some time but have since resumed.

A 2017 homeland security report shows almost 900,000 people work at the nation's 450 airports and the report warned: "There are increasing concerns that insider threats to aviation security are on the rise".

"Just because you have a badge doesn't mean you can go everywhere", he said.

Authorities initially said the man was a mechanic but Alaska Airlines later said he was an employee who helps direct aircraft to gates and de-ice planes.

Alaska Airlines said they are not ready to share those details but they are providing that information to the FBI and federal regulators.

"I want to share how incredibly sad all of us at Alaska are about this incident". "We are stunned and heartbroken", said family spokesman Mike Matthews, as he read a statement released by the Russell Family Saturday in Seattle.

In his 26 years as a commercial airline pilot, Dan Stratman said he's never seen anything like the Seattle incident before.

"I've got a lot of people that care about me, and it's going to disappoint them to hear that I did this", the man said. "They probably have anti-aircraft", he responds. "I thought this is really odd".
