Did not know how to land a plane done a loop probably had a lot of time on a simulator
He told the controller he played alot of video games
I'm seeing some stating that he was a ramper not a mechanic.
Ground crew - i believe
He was not a mechanic. He was what we call a "ramper". They load bags, move stuff around, hook up the towbar and marshall an aircraft into a gate.
