RIP old girl. No more fat smelly ungrateful passengers. Just barrel rolls in that big airport in the sky.

I wondering why support let him sign out the keys to the jet in the first place.


Most large aircraft don't have keys. There is a Starter/Generator switch, usually a 3 position toggle with starter/generator/off positions, but no key.

The FBI has recovered the FDR and "components" of the CVR as well as human remains.

Jeezus, the guy didn't even file a flight plan!!!! He must have choked on some flight line.

Been watching Airplane reruns today. He picked a bad day to quit amphetamines!

The 1 thing that is ticking me off about all this is how the LEOs are trying to paint this as something they need to protect the public from. While there was a possibility of him losing control or even purposely crashing into a populated area, obviously, that was not his intention. Why spin it that way? Bring on full cavity searches for everyone, by TSA, so that we can feel "safe" from a bag guy that wants to do something epic before he offs himself.

You talking bout the FBI guy? I think this would affect maintenance more. Regular peeps wouldn't have the access or the know how to work all the ground equipment.

That's what I was thinking too. This is going to hurt the backside guys more than anyone else.

Just to start with. It'll probably get worse from there.

I had to laugh the other day. They were talking about how he violated the two man rule when he got on the plane. Uhm....unless you have people to enforce the two man rule, it gets violated a lot.

2 man rule???? I only ever head about that for nukes. I see maintenance peeps all the time here with just one specialist. To expensive to send a team if not needed. Besides, how many flights are there a year, compared to suicidal Top Gun pilots? Will be interesting if the FAA or Homeland Security make any new policies.

It's apparently Horizon Air policy that two people are required to access unattended aircraft.

Well, someone else is going to be standing in unemployment line today. Unless they are unionized.

I think everything in Seattle is unionized.

The FBI guy (possibly retired), is included, but I've read several stories from the MSM where they make sure to add how this is a security risk and that it puts the populace at risk. Yes, technically it does, but all of the recordings I've heard and transcripts of the conversations I've read, this guy didn't want to physically hurt anyone but himself. I guess I already have a skewed view of TSA and I fear that this will somehow be used to advance the overreach of the TSA even though it has nothing to do with regular passengers. Just my 2 cents and possibly just needed to vent. Lol

The back side crew has always been a security risk. It's just that the media never picked up on it.
