The sheriff's department said "preliminary" information was that the plane's pilot was "a mechanic from unknown airlines" who "was doing stunts in air" or lacked flying skills.

Two f-15 fighter jets were scrambled from nearby Portland to intercept the aircraft, though police said they ultimately had no role in its crash at Puget Sound just north of Seattle, in the state of Washington. "Holy smokes, I've got to stop looking at the fuel because it's going down quick".

The sheriff's department tweeted that there were no passengers on plane.

The aftermath of the extraordinary aeroplane crash shows the burning wreckage scattered amidst a fiery forest at night. "We're working to confirm who was on board, we believe there were no guests or crew on board other than the person operating the plane".

The governor of Washington, Jay Inslee, thanked the Air National Guard from Washington and OR on Twitter "for scrambling jets to keep Washingtonians safe". "Those pilots are trained for moments like tonight and showed they are ready and capable", he wrote.

The airport also confirmed the plane wasn't carrying passengers.

He told them, "Those guys will rough me up if I try and land there". She says this is the plane. Ketron Island is a sparsely populated island 25 miles (40 km) southwest of the airport.

"I've got a lot of people that care about me".

"Alright", the man in the airplane responds.

The air traffic controller, who called the man 'Rich, ' tried to convince the man to land the airplane.

"I don't want to hurt no one". Well I would hope it would be for a guy like me'.

The exchange happened during the flight but the timing of the conversation is unclear.

Waldron said that he was prepared to "run and take cover".

It crashed about an hour after it was stolen and did not hit any ground structures.

Spokesmen for the Transportation Security Administration, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Aviation Administration directed inquiries to local authorities.

"What we have is that someone stole a plane", Troyer said.

No passengers were onboard during the incident and normal operations have resumed at the airfield, the airport said on Twitter.

Alaska Air's website says its Q400 propjets - flown by its subsidiary, Horizon Air - hold 76 passengers and are used for short-haul flights.
