Newly released surveillance video from an airport in Utah shows what happened in July when a Colorado pilot jumped a perimeter fence and drove a commercial jet into a parking lot.
Authorities are trying to determine how a pilot suspected in a homicide was able to slip into a small Utah airport and steal an empty passenger plane that he drove into some cars. He was later found dead in an aisle of the aircraft with a gunshot wound to the head.
Right now individual airports, not the federal government, are in charge of policing their perimeters. That it didn’t stop a Colorado pilot from getting onto the grounds of the St. George Municipal Airport in Utah.
A pilot accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend in Colorado Springs stole a plane in St. George, Utah, and committed suicide while in the cockpit, according to authorities.
