Man who stole plane from Seattle Airport was Richard Russell

Investigators still don’t know how Richard Russell, an airline worker, was able to start a commercial airplane on his own, take off, and fly it around for more than an hour last night in Seattle. They say the apparently suicidal man ultimately crashed on a small island in Puget Sound moments after joking around with air traffic controllers and expressing regret about what he was doing.
