So how exactly do you obtain the required knowledge and access to get a commercial airliner airborne...without auth..from a major international airport..and not be able to land it..and not forsee the f15 thing...?

I mean I'm above average..and I dont think I could just sit down in the seat and fly..and I've flown private planes briefly...plus I know there are fighters with the ability to shoot my silly ass down and they are authorized to use all the speed 'murica gave'em...which is more than enough.

There is a story here

In NYC on 9/11 the F18’s came into our air space on afterburners about 3 seconds after the second plane hit.

I believe they were scrambled from Patuxent NAS.

I was tracking an Alaska Q400 on ads-b tracker earlier for a few minutes.  Looked to be west of seatac.  And it disappeared shortly after.  They are releasing ground holds for east and south departures.

Maybe it is down.

With X-Plane software and some basic searching you can get the manuals for the proper startup procedure and solid flightsim software to practice the procedure. It's not hard to start up an aircraft once you memorize the process or print the manuals/procedure and take it with you. Or use the one already in the cockpit.

I was inside and heard a crazy boom/explosion sound, stuff inside the house rattled.  There was a second, smaller boom a second or so after.  I went out on the back porch and checked to see if Mt. Rainier had erupted(it was pretty loud. LOl) the neighbors were also on their deck and said that they saw a commercial plane fly by pretty low and then two "fighter jets" flew by.

It was exciting for a second. Lol

Flight status was just revoked.

God, what will be next? People are so fucking crazy these days. It just seems people keep doing crazier and crazier things. This dude evidently wanted to give Florida Man a run for his money.

WTF

The man’s name was “Rich,” according to tower audio and, at one point, he told the tower he was losing an engine. Periodically, his voice cut into the dispatches. At one point, “Rich” (or “Rick”) said on the aviation audio, “This is probably jail time for life, huh? I would hope it is for a guy like me.” People on Twitter who were following the aviation audio reported that the man attempted a “barrel roll” with the plane at one point – or at least claimed he was going to do so.
This is some weird shit, I hope no one innocent was hurt or killed.

If you have been through a dozen or so hours of flight training in a little Cessna or Cherokee,  (about to the point of solo give or take)  there is a chance you could get most any plane, that was already running, off the ground.   The difficulty would be in taxiing an unfamiliar and large(er) aircraft.  If you could get it to a runway and lined up, throttle up, pull back and trees get smaller. Push forward, trees get bigger.   They all work in a similar way.

Now, this same person has a slim chance of being able to land the plane safely.

There's a lot of construction going on a SeaTac.
To board some flights you have to exit the terminal and walk outside.

That is Steilacoom, with Ketron Island under the smoke.

Wonder if he hit the island, or water.

Hopefully shot down. It would be nice to see our air assets stop a threat over CONUS.

Fox island says they saw smoke or an explosion. By Stilacoom.
