Tried to steal an aircraft - again.

Someone tried to steal a seaplane from the Harbour Air dock in Vancouver BC last night. Damaged two other aircraft and the one he attempted to steal One of them, at least, badly. Wing broken and horizontal stabiliser removed. Police don't have anyone in custody.

There was an aircraft stolen in Seattle in the last couple of years. He, at least, made it into the air but then crashed after stunting and erratic flying.
