Re: ✈️Washington Airline Worker

My heart hurts over this; something so different about it.

 

May he, those he loved and who loved him, all find peace.

Re: ✈️Washington Airline Worker

The voice recordings are available in their entirety online. Truly heart wrenching.

 

For those who only want the Cliffs Notes this young guy working for near minimum wage was fighting what's often referred to as the new norm. He decided he'd never overcome it.

 

I doubt the I learned to fly by watching video games is accurate.

 

Truly hope he has found peace.

Re: ✈️Washington Airline Worker

Suicide is tragic, especially for someone so young.

He didn't harm anyone else, thank goodness.

 

That aside, if he had been depressed for a long time and everyone knew it, how did he still have access to an airport and planes??

 

This angle disturbs me.  

TSA is fondling old ladies in a wheelchair but employees are not vetted?

This event just revealed a blueprint to every wacko out there.

@software

I don’t think anyone has said he was depressed and

I don’t think anyone has been interviewed to clarify ‘everyone knew it.’

 

And ‘fondling’?  You really think that’s what TSA does?

Wow...I think that’s a story, a very sordid story, in your own mind.

SO many facets to this story.

But the most important one, to me, is Suicide/Depression.

No one seems to be mentioning the reason why he did this. 

 

 


One of the articles did, and the recorded conversations between the control tower and the "pilots" alluded to that. He was an airport worker who got into an empty plane and somehow was able to take off. It's a miracle no other planes ended up involved either on the runway or in the air. The guy knew what he knew from video games. Can you believe it? Even more unbelievable is the fact that he could even do what he did with so called airport security.


@RainyDayGirl

I’ve seen a lot of interviews.

IMO.....it would be nice to have someone from a

Suicide Prevention Organization to come on to talk about the

reason why he did this.  The HOW he did this is important for

our safety, but it’s imperative we still talk about the reason why.


What makes you think that SPO would know why this particular man chose to do this, unless he left his written plan?I think the man himself already answered the question. He said he had a screw loose. Knowing the exact detail of everything in his life now is not going to change things. Dead is dead. People do suicidal things all the time, and each one is a separate case. The point is he should NEVER have been able to take a Horizon plane and become airborn in the first place. They need to review every detail of how this transpired and make sure the circumstances are never right for this to happen again.  Many others could have succumbed as well. Sea Tac Airport has some explaining to do.


 

 

Exactly!

I heard some interviews this morning with officials and they don't seem concerned.

It's done, over, move along. Nothing to see.

Re: ✈️Washington Airline Worker

Sad.  And the fact he could just take the plane is scary.  I guess in time  more information will come out.
