Re: AS Employee steals Q400 at SeaTac

I don't believe in people snapping Whether you believe it or not, it's a scientific fact. It's called a "psychotic break", and you can look that term up. (I had a family member who went through that.) This is why it's usually pointless to ask "why" in cases like this (as well as...

I just went on a trip from PDX to SEA and the first plane I saw at the Horizon gate was N449QX. I also live right under a major approach pattern for PDX and probably have seen this spec...
