    Nothing to do with TSA. It was a Horizon Air employee who was already air-side. Threedee failed to scramble fighters quickly enough. It could have been a major disaster.

    Both TSA and Threedee are responsible, but we would be remiss if we left out the FAA. After all, they let that airplane into the takeoff queue.

    It is indisputable. Aside from that, it was local news for me. I watched coverage on KIRO from minutes after that airplane took off. Seatac is one of the busiest airports on the west coast. That airplane was allowed into the takeoff queue.

    The 76-seat Horizon Air turboprop plane took off without authorization at 7:32 p.m. local time, with a Horizon Air employee who was not a pilot at the controls, officials said.

    What is your argument? The FAA is responsible for air traffic both in the air and on the ground. They failed. They allowed an unscheduled flight to slip into the queue with other airliners taking off. They failed. The TSA was unable to secure the facilities, and Threedee failed because he was the closest JPP personnel to the scene of the crime.

    Funny how "copy and paste" attempted to fault the media for what he implied not covering the story when it was all over nearly every media outlet, "grumpy" even gave him the hated NY Times report

    As I always said, he needs to get out more, lot more
