Re: Updated: AS employee steals and crashes Q400 at SeaTac

I read originally that he put the plane into a vertical pitch up and just went straight down...found a video that almost captures the crash , or atleast like 3 seconds before the crash and it looks like he just flew it straight and level into the ground. I haven’t found it, but I wonder what his abs...

Ahhh so that explains what Rich meant when he kept saying “hey pilot guy”. In the recordings I listened to all you hear is the Seattle controller and no one else. If available, a link to full audio would be awesome!

Found it.

This is a really naive question, but how else would you control speed? I'm assuming you could reduce the throttle to idle and let the plane slow down on its own if it isn't going very fast. Or he left the parking brake engaged. I’m curious to see if he had some flight training and didn’t make it to...
