Bill Radke talks to Jon Ostrower, editor in chief of The Air Current about airline security and what can be done after a Horizon Airlines plane was stolen from Sea-Tac airport by a 29 year old ground service agent who worked for the airline. Richard "Beebo" Russell died when the plane crashed at the south end of Ketron Island after nearly an hour and a half of circling around Puget Sound.
