How was an airline employee with no known flying experience able to successfully steal a plane? Why did he want to do so? And what can be done to stop something like this from happening again? We tackle those questions on this special episode of the Week in Geek Podcast and share snippets of the man's rambling conversation with air traffic control as he does stunts and evades F15 fighter jets scrambled to prevent a potential disaster. We also want to invite podcast listeners to a special meetup and live recording of the Week in Geek! The event is all about building community and takes place the evening of Thursday, August 23, in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood.
