From what I hear at this early date, there are no declared government fatalities, thank the Lord. The pilot is said to have burned his home to the ground just prior to taking off in a stolen plane from Waco. The plane was said by witnesses to bore in at maximum speed.
A small plane has crashed into the Echelon I Building on Mopac and U.S. 183 in northwest Austin, TX., around 10 a.m. Thursday. According KXAN, the collision shook the entire commercial building and the entire front of the structure is gone and on fire. Joseph Andrew Stack, a software engineer, is being named as a possible pilot of the plane. His wife, Sharon Stack and daughter were rescued from their burning house by a neighbor. Stack reportedly lives in Austin and is able to fly a small plane. The news reports are saying that he set the fire at his home and fled the scene before police arrived after being called for a domestic disturbance situation. He has flown out of the Georgetown airport in the past. The plane, which was stolen, reportedly took off from Georgetown Municipal Airport at 9:40 a.m. Investigators are looking into whether there is a connection between Stack and the plane crash.
