Shortly after the plane took off, traffic controllers were heard on a live Internet broadcast talking to a man identified as "Rich."

"There's a track just right on a mile, you see?" the traffic controller said.

"Oh, those guys will try to ruin me if I try to land there …" Rich replied. & # 39; I think I could spoil something there too. I would not like to do that. Oh, they probably have antiaircraft.

"They do not have any of that, we're just trying to find a place to land safely."

"Yes, I'm still not ready to knock it down, but the sacred smoke needs to stop looking at the fuel because it's falling fast."

"Okay, Rich, if you could, you could start turning left and we'll take you southeast."

This is probably jail for life, huh? I hope it's for a guy like me. & # 39;

Rich: I have many people who care about me. You will be disappointed to hear that I did this.

I would like to apologize to each and every one of them. Just a broken guy, he has some loose screws, I guess. I never really knew, until now

Rich: I dropped to 2,100, I started at 30 and peak.

Air traffic control: Rich, did you say you had 2,100 pounds of fuel left?

Rich: Yes, I do not know what ardor is, exhaustion? It's like a takeoff, but yes, it burned a lot faster than I expected.

Air traffic control: Right now he is flying, and he just needs help to control the plane.

Rich: No, I mean, I do not need that much help. I've played some video games before. I'd like to find out how to get this … pressurized or something like that, so I'm not dizzy.

Rich: Ah minimum wage. We will attribute it to that. Maybe that lubricates the gears a bit with the superiors

Rich: Damn Andrew, the lives of people are at stake here.

Air traffic control: Ah Rich, do not say things like that.

Rich: I do not want to hurt anyone, I just want you to whisper sweet sweets in my ear.

Rich: Hey, do you think that if I land this successfully, Alaska will give me a job as a pilot?

Air traffic control: You know, I think they would give you a job doing anything if you could achieve this.

Rich: Yeah right! Nah, I'm a white boy

Air traffic control: If you wanted to land, probably your best option is that track just in front and to your left. Again, that's McCourt (sic) Field.

If you would like to try, that could be the best way to configure and see if you can land there. Or just like the pilot's suggestion, the other option could be about Puget Sound, on the water.

Rich: Dang, did you talk to McCourt, because I do not know if he'd be happy with you telling me he could land like that, because it really could ruin some things?

Air traffic control: Well rich, I already talked to them. Like me, what we want to see is that you do not get hurt or that someone else gets hurt. So, if you want to try to land, that is the way to go.

Rich: Hi, I want the coordinates of that orca, you know, the mother orca with the baby. I want to see that guy.

Rich: Hey, is that pilot on? I want to know what the weather will be like at the Olympic Games (mountains).

Air traffic control: Well, if you can see the Olympics, the weather is good. I can see the Olympics from my window, and it looks pretty good there.

Rich: All right, because I felt something, what felt like a turbulence around Rainer, but there were hardly any clouds.

Air traffic control: Oh, that's just the wind blowing on all the bumpy surfaces.

Captain Bill: Well Rich, this is Captain Bill. Congratulations, you did it, try to land safely and not hurt anyone on the ground.

Rich: All right, damn, I do not know man, I do not know. I do not want … I was hoping it was that, you know.

Rich: I'm going to land, in a safe way. I think I'll try to make a barrel, and if that goes well, I'll lower my nose and call it a night.

Air traffic control: Well rich, before doing that, let's think about this. Another pilot awaits me, pilot Joel, in just a minute, I hope. And we can give you some advice on what to do next.

Rich: I feel like one of my engines is shutting down or something.

Air traffic control: OK Rich, if you could, you just want to keep that plane on the water. Maybe keep the plane nice and low.

Rich: Just a little dazed, dizzy. Man, the views went by so fast. I was thinking, like, I'm going to have this moment of serenity, enjoy all the places of interest. There are many beautiful things, but they are more beautiful in a different context.

Air traffic control: Do you have any idea how much fuel you have left?

Rich: Oh man, it's not enough. Not enough to get ahead. How, uh, 760? 760 pounds?

Air traffic control: Simply flying around the plane, do you feel comfortable with that?

Rich: Oh hell, yes, it's a wonder. I've played video games before, so I know what I'm doing a little.

Air traffic control: OK, and you can see all the terrain around you, do not you have any problems with visibility or anything?

Rich: Naw, everything is peachy, peachy clean. I just made a small circle around Rainer, it's beautiful. I think I have some gas to go to see the Olympic Games (mountains).

Rich: I would not know how to land, I really was not planning to land.

Rich: I'm sorry, my microphone came out, I vomited a little. I'm sorry, I hope this does not ruin your day.

Rich: Man, have you been to the Olympics? These boys are beautiful, holy smoke.

Air traffic control: Ya, I've been there, it's always a good trip.

Rich: (inaudible)

Air traffic control: Hey, I bet yes. I have not done much hiking there. But if you could start to turn left, and back to the east. I know you have a good view there, but if you go too far in that direction I will not be able to hear you anymore.

Rich: Hi pilot boy, can this do a backflip, you think?

Rich: I would not mind shooting the boys, but it's all a matter, you know?
