An airline mechanic's stolen a plane and crashed into a small island in the US state of Washington.

The man was the only person on board the 76 - seater aircraft when it took off from Seattle's main airport. 

F-15 military fighter jets were scrambled from a nearby air force base and were seen chasing the plane. 

 

Officials say it's likely the man died in the crash.

Local sheriff Paul Pastor's ruling out terrorism.

"The person may have been doing some air stunts and whatever I know that some aircraft were scrambled from the air-force base, there's no indication that this person who was flying the place was trying to damage anything or attack anything."
