    SeaTac plane hijacker raised suspicion a year before stealing plane

    Newly released recordings offer more insight into Richard Russell, the airline ground agent at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport who stole a plane and flew it for more than an hour before crashing. The new audio indicates Russell had raised suspicion before: After the crash, a pilot made an emergency call to say he saw Russell acting strangely in the pilot’s cockpit a year earlier. NBC’s Tom Costello reports for TODAY.
