Not only FBI, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and National Transportation Safety Board are also investigating the incident.

"We will be more careful in taking the time needed to explore the area, investigate the background of the perpetrator, and review every aspect of this incident with all the right public and private partners" FBI representative was quoted as saying by Reuters on Sunday, August 12th 2018.

On Friday night, August 10th 2018 local time, an Alaska Air Horizon, US land service agent, suddenly entered and flew the Bombardier Q400 turboprop aircraft which was originally in an aircraft maintenance area at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. He flew the plane for about an hour unstable until it finally fell on Ketron Island, Puget Sound, about 25 miles (about 40 km) to the southwest.

In a press conference, airport officials and airline representatives said the employee had worked for Horizon Air for 3.5 years and had permission to withdraw the aircraft to the treatment room.

According to the Pierce County Sheriff's Department, the unnamed 29-year-old man is likely to attempt suicide and act on his own. "Doing action in the air or lack of flying skills causes accidents on the Island" said the Sheriff's Department.
