A runway worker in Seattle named Richard Russell stole a Horizon Airlines plane on Friday, and eventually crashed it on an island.  He wasn't a trained pilot, but he seemed to think he knew what he was doing because he'd played video games before.  He died in the crash, but at least he was the only one on the plane.  He also spent a lot of time talking to air traffic controllers, and told them he did it because he felt disrespected at his job and snapped.
