An airline employee on an apparent  joyride caused a big scare in the skies over Washington State's Puget  Sound when he stole a passenger plane from SeaTac Airport last night.   There was no one else on board but the incident led to fighter jets being scrambled out of Portland to intercept the rogue pilot.  The  29-year-old man, described as having been suicidal, ended up doing some  stunts in the air before crashing on Ketron Island near Tacoma.  There's  been official word on his fate, but it's presumed he did not survive.   Both the FBI and local authorities say there does not appear to be any connection to terrorism.
