A Horizon Airlines plane has crashed after it was reportedly stolen by a ground employee from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Friday around 8 pm, according to local authorities and a senior federal aviation source.

The employee has stolen Alaska Airlines Q400 passenger airplane from from the airport and has since crashed on Ketron Island in the southern Puget Sound. No passengers are believed to have been on board the plane.

North American Aerospace Defense Command scrambled fighter jets to accompany the plane, which was steered away from Seattle and Tacoma by air traffic control, on its hour-long flight, according to the source.

The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department said the two F-15s were not involved in the crash. But according to local media, witnesses reported seeing F-15 fighter jets chasing the plane, followed by smoke and loud boom.

The crash took place on Ketron Island, which is southwest of Tacoma, in south Puget Sound. The small island has only about 20 year-round residents.

The employee who stole the plane was 29 years old, from Pierce County and called ‘suicidal’ by the sheriff’s department. It clarified this was not a terrorist incident.

“Most terrorists don’t do loops over the water,” Sheriff Paul Pastor said. “This might have been a joyride gone terribly wrong.”

The Pierce County Sheriff tweeted, “Stolen horizon airplane crashed into Ketron island. Preliminary info is that a mechanic from unknown airlines stole plane. Was doing stunts in air or lack of flying skills caused crash into Island.”

Likewise, Alaska Airlines tweeted about an incident involving an “unauthorized take-off of a Horizon Air Q400. They said there were no passengers on board.

A 36-year-old German woman who has never had sex says she has successfully auctioned her virginity online for €250,000.

Identified as Mandy, who works as a flight attendant, enlisted the help of Cinderella Escorts to sell her body online after coming across the website in a newspaper, according to Daily Mail report.

The aspiring singer’s offer has been purchased by an anonymous businessman in Munich.

Mandy said she thought her age drove up the bidding on her virginity. She has said she intends to use the proceeds of the auction to boost her career and help her family — leaving some over for charity.

Mandy, speaking exclusively to FEMAIL, said: ‘I never met the right guy. I focused on my career. It just didn’t work out sometimes.’

‘Every woman can only lose her virginity once,’ said Mandy, who will meet the successful bidder to complete the transaction next month.

The flight attendant says she still hopes to meet her dream man after the sale.

The second highest bid for Mandy’s virginity came from a lawyer at €240,000 and the third was from a football Player from Munich at €200,000.

Mandy said she had grown sick of wondering when she might finally have sex for the first time.

‘It’s like the casino,’ she said,’You have to know when to stop. I could go on for years telling myself that I only have to wait another year until I meet the right guy.

‘The years would go by and I’d only lose time. I think I’m doing the right thing.’

Asked what her parents make of her decision Mandy told FEMAIL: ‘If my parents still do not recognise me as an adult woman at 36 and respect my decisions, then this would be very disappointing.

Website founder Jan Zakobielski, who runs the business from Dortmun, Germany, previously likened a woman’s virginity to a ‘very old wine’ or a ‘luxury car.’

Zakobielski will receive 20 per cent — equating to €50,000)– of Mandy’s final price when she meets the bidder in September.
