Skywest Jet on Tarmac


A SkyWest regional jet sits on the tarmac on the opposite end of the St. George Municipal Airport Tuesday, July 17, 2012. A SkyWest Airlines employee wanted in a murder case attempted to steal a passenger plane, then shot himself in the head after crashing the aircraft in a nearby parking lot, officials said Tuesday. Brian Hedglin, 40, scaled a razor wire fence at the St. George Municipal Airport early Tuesday, then boarded the 50-passenger SkyWest jet while the airport was closed, St. George city spokesman Marc Mortenson said.
