NYT – Stolen Plane Crashes After Airline Employee Takes Off From Seattle Airport

The cops said it was a "joy ride" but it sounds a lot more like the guy just had some kind of mental break.

Quote:
Observers chronicled the plane’s course on social media and listened in to radio traffic in real time. While the plane was still aloft, the man flying it chatted with officials in a frenzied stream of consciousness, commenting on the beauty of the Olympic Mountains, the prospect of jail time and shock at his rapidly fading gas tank.

He said he hoped to have a “moment of serenity” in the air but lamented that the sights “went by so fast.” He also talked about doing a barrel roll in the air and wondered aloud about whether the plane could do a back flip.

“I got a lot of people that care about me and it’s gonna disappoint them to hear that I did this,” the man could be heard saying. “I would like to apologize to each and every one of them. Just a broken guy, got a few screws loose I guess. Never really knew it until now.”

At one point, an official urged him to land the plane.

The man sputtered.

“I don’t know man,” he said. “I don’t know. I don’t want to. I was kind of hoping that was gonna be it.”

I also thought it was kind of odd that this guy obviously died, but the article does not actually say that explicitly. I kept going through it to find where it said for sure he was deceased, and it does not.

fwiw that scene was totally improvised by Williams and is a beautiful showcase of his rare talent and humanity
