ST. GEORGE — Surveillance footage has been released of a bizarre plane crash and suicide at the St. George airport in July.

A commercial pilot, later identified as 40-year-old Brian Joseph Hedglin, killed his girlfriend in Colorado Springs, tried to steal a SkyWest airplane, crashed it and then shot himself on board.

Valerie Walker, a professional pilot who looked at the video, said looks like Hedglin was trying to take off.

The video shows the stolen SkyWest plane crashing through a fence and into cars in the airport parking lot.
