EXCLUSIVE: Suicidal airport mechanic who stole a 76-seat plane and performed stunts before crashing into an island in a ball of flames is a married 29-year-old from Alaska who dreamed of joining the military

The man who hijacked an Alaska Airlines plane in Seattle on Friday night taking it for a joyride before crashing on an island in a ball of flames is a married 29-year-old Horizon Air employee who dreamed of joining the military.  The mechanic, referred to as 'Rich' and 'Richard' by air traffic controllers, was born in Key West, Florida and moved to Alaska as a child.   He met his wife in Oregon in 2010 while they were in school and married one year later. The newlyweds then opened a bakery together, which is now closed. They moved to Seattle in 2015.   While living in Seattle, Rich started working for Horizon Airlines with the hopes of working in a management position. He also had dreams of becoming an officer in the military.  His main role at the airport was to unload bags, and seems to have had no flying experience. He was also not permitted to fly planes.    His condition after the crash wasn't immediately known.    Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said on Saturday morning that president Trump had been briefed on the incident and was monitoring the situation. She also praised the response effort for its 'swift action' and ensuring public safety.    During the hijacking Friday night at Seattle-Tacoma Airport, Rich joked with air traffic controllers for more than 20 minutes before crashing it into an island 25 miles away.

Busiest Day In Aviation History

Was this the busiest day in aviation history? Flight tracking app registers over 225,000 aircraft in the skies on Wednesday  Wednesday may have been one of the busiest days in aviation history. Flight tracking app Flightradar24 said it registered over 225,000 aircraft in the skies on that day - the most it had ever recorded in a single day. The figure is made up of every flight the app managed to trace and includes commercial flights, cargo planes, helicopters, gliders and private jets. However, Flightradar24 has only been tracking flights since 2006 and isn't the official supplier of air traffic data, so whether Wednesday was a record-breaker is open to debate. To illustrate just how busy the skies were on Wednesday, Flightradar24 released a snapshot of its world map graphic from that day, which was swarming with plane icons. The majority of the flights were clustered over the United States, Europe and South East Asia. Source
