How did a baggage handler steal a plane from one of America's busiest airports?

That's the question today after Richard Russell took off from Sea-Tac International Airport before crashing a stolen passenger plane an hour later.

Inside Edition's Steven Fabian got a lesson on a flight simulator to see how Russell might have learned how to master the controls. See how easy it was for Fabian to handle the plane.

And in the latest drama for the White House, Omarosa Manigault Newman claims in her new book that Melania Trump uses fashion to "punish her husband." The White House says Omarosa's book is riddled with "lies and false accusations."

The president also hit back at his former aide, calling her "wacky Omarosa" after she released a secret recording of Chief of Staff John Kelly firing her in the Situation Room. Inside Edition has the latest on staffers' fears that she used a spy pen to make the recording in the ultra-secure room.

Meanwhile, in New Jersey, a bride was rescued from her car amid rising floodwaters.

"I was terrified," Sabrina Riley told Inside Edition from her honeymoon in Jamaica. Visit here for more of her story.
