There are unconfirmed reports that a commercial plane was stolen from the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Friday night.

The fighter jets were scrambled to chase the Horizon Airlines Q400 turboprop, according to local media reports and passengers on Twitter.

Authorities have not confirmed anything, but live aviation audio from the tower said the authorities "were trying to land safely and not hurt anyone."

The Federal Aviation Administration said: "We can not confirm anything at this time, we are trying to get accurate information about what is really happening, without confirming anything, a stolen plane would be a security problem.

"The FAA is not a security agency, although we work closely with other government agencies on security issues."

Dailymail.com has contacted the airport to receive comments.
