Inslee statement on stolen Horizon Air plane

Story Body

Gov. Jay Inslee released the following statement tonight on the incident involving a stolen Horizon Air plane:

"There are still a lot of unknowns surrounding tonight's tragic incident of a stolen Horizon Air plane from Sea-Tac Airport. The responding fighter pilots flew alongside the aircraft and were ready to do whatever was needed to protect us, but in the end the man flying the stolen plane crashed on Ketron Island. I want to thank the Air National Guard from Washington and Oregon for scrambling jets to keep Washingtonians safe. Those pilots are trained for moments like tonight and showed they are ready and capable."
