    Stolen HorizonAir Plane

    I was sitting in my Hot Tub Friday night when that Horizon Air plane flew a couple hundred feet overhead then crashed on an Island just south of me. I did not See the crash but saw the plume of smoke....and later had to go inside from the ground fire smoke. My question is: How far do you think you would get in getting an airplane started....let alone getting it off the ground?....without any formal training?

    As I read in some article, the guy said he had flight sim experience.
    It is hard to say that enough knowledge of a particular aircraft could be picked up by being around them enough.
    It looks like a modern glass cockpit.
    They could probably use a 2 factor activation/authorization to keep the plane from being started by pressing a button.
    So much of what we have, tech wise, has security based on "don't touch if you are not authorized".

    It would probably happen more often if there was a possibility of a better end result.

    Not if airport security is doing their job. This was totally inexcusable and someone needs to lose their job over it.
    The White Zone is for loading and unloading only. If you got to load or unload go to the White Zone.
