Baggar handler caught on CCTV stealing plane

What: Richard Russell, age 29, is seen towing Alaska Airlines back in 2018into position at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in recently released CCTV footage. Oddly, no one on the tarmac seemed to notice. Russell, who worked at the airport, can be seen calm passing through security a few hours before he gained access to the plane. He didn't look suspicious. Before crashing the aircraft into the sparsely populated Ketron Island, he had flown the aircraft for 73 minutes.

When: On July 10, a video showing a guy hijacking an Alaska Airlines Q400 from Seattle Airport was made public.

What’s next: The FBI stated that Russell committed suicide and that his death was an isolated incident unrelated to any larger criminal or terrorist activities.
