Although it's not yet known how Richard, who worked with airport baggage and was not a pilot, was able to get in the plane and fly it away from the airport without being caught, F-15 fighter jets were called to track him as soon as airline employees realized what was going on.

They intercepted the plane near Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

The man sounds calm at times and jokes with operators on the ground, who try to direct him to places to land. "I would like to apologise to each and every one of them", he said.

In the chilling recording, he revealed he was a "broken man" and apologised to the air traffic controller.

A local aviation expert says the incident shows glaring gaps in airport security.

Sea-Tac officials said the airline employee had "conducted an unauthorised takeoff without passengers".

29-year-old Richard Russell, a ramp agent for Horizon Air, stole one of the companies aircraft and took it for a joy ride.

"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 jets were not involved in the crash, it said.

One user tweeted, "Some dude stole a plane from #Seatac (Allegedly), did a loop-the-loop, nearly crashed into #ChambersBay, then crossed in front of our party, chased by fighter jets and subsequently crashed".
