an interesting thing:

Man steals King Air 90 and threatens to crash into Walmart. 

As of posting, he still has 2 hours of fuel left and isn’t over Tupelo Missouri any longer.

It isn’t hard to steal a plane, Starting it and taking off (and controlling it once in the air) can be challenging if you don’t know what you are doing, but none of them are that difficult.

I have a feeling that he won’t land it well, and that the plane will be paid off by insurance. Let us hope he doesn’t hurt anyone else.

Update: he has apparently landed. 

In a field.

  2. Yeah, that is going to be an ‘interesting’ investigation… Bet the keys were in the office.

  3. If there are keys at all (Mine (C340) only has locks on the door) starting is switches only.
