Fugitive pilot seizes regional jet, commits suicide


Delta Connection carrier SkyWest was involved in a bizarre Utah incident that has led to questions about airport security...............

The Spectrum of St. George writes that the man – identified as Brian Joseph Hedglin – "then drove the plane around the south side of the airport terminal and into the public parking lot, damaging several vehicles at the location as well as the plane and the terminal itself before he committed suicide inside the aircraft."

The newspaper says the man – of Colorado Springs – was a pilot for SkyWest and was "suspected of killing a woman (identified as his ex-girlfriend) in that city last week."

SkyWest pilot takes jarring ride in stolen plane


SALT LAKE CITY (AP) A SkyWest Airlines pilot and murder suspect who stole an empty 50-passenger jet and crashed it as he drove it at a small Utah airport was found dead with a gunshot wound to his head about halfway down the aircraft aisle, police said Wednesday.

Brian Hedglin was wanted in the murder of his girlfriend in Colorado when he used a rug to scale the razor wire-topped fence at the St. George Municipal Airport early Tuesday. The plane crashed in an airport parking lot before it got off the ground.

Authorities were trying Wednesday to determine just how Hedglin gained access to the plane while the airport was closed, among other details.
