    Plane crashes into Northwest Austin building (that houses the FBI)

    Plane crashes into Northwest Austin building | kvue.com | Austin News, Local News, Breaking News, Weather | Local News

    A small single-engine plane crashed into a building in Northwest Austin Thursday morning, sparking a fire.

    The crash happened near MoPac and Highway 183.

    Smoke could be scene pouring from the a building in the Echelon complex on traffic cameras and in photosgraphs send in by KVUE viewers and reporters.

    KVUE’s Noelle Newton reports most of the windows are blown out. People were evacuated. There is so far no word on how many people have been injured. A witness told KVUE that it didn't appear the plane was having any trouble before it crashed.

    Firefighters say they have made several rescues, but so far two people are unaccounted for.

    Officials say an FBI field office is housed in the complex, but it was not hit. They say this appears to be accidental.
    Accidental? Not far from Fort Hood? CNN seems to have made it a mere sidenote that the FBI is housed in this complex, which doesn't seem such a sidenote to me.

    Terrorist attack?

    Till we know more... let's assume it was a single engine plane that crashed.

    Re: Plane crashes into Northwest Austin building (that houses the FBI)

    Early reports that the building housed the FBI field office in Austin later turned out not to be true. An FBI spokesman told Fox News that the FBI office in Austin is near where the plane crashed, but not in the same building

    The FBI spokesman also told Fox News that as of 10:30 a.m. local time. there was nothing to indicate that this targeted the FBI or that the crash was terrorism-related.

    "The building lies along a flight path," the spokesman said, so right now it looks like an "accident."
    Looks like the early reports were false. The FBI building is close, but not the same building.

    That's because you're paranoid.

    What does Fort Hood have to do with this? Are you suggesting that because a crazy man shot people at Fort Hood that it increases the chance this is an intentional attack? Guilt by proximity?

    Small engine planes crash all the time. It seems like an ineffective terrorist method to crash one into a building, hardly on par to the 911 attacks

    We just had a similar crash in California yesterday. Instead of a business building it was residential homes.

    Well, the video of that building shows it's pretty damaged... I'm curious if we'll see threads down in tinfoil-hat land about how the Obama Admin ran a test run of a drone attack in broad day light in prep for the next "terrorist attack".

    A more effective terrorist activity would be that wait outside the building and shoot the exact people you want to shoot as they're going to their cars at the end of the day. That would be cheaper, easier, and more effective. An added bonus would be that you wouldn't have to commit suicide carrying out the attack...

    The same thing happened after those 4 cops were killed near Seattle. Some people were obsessed by the fact that the killings took place just outside McChord AFB ..therefore it must be a terrorist attack.

    People are just too paranoid these days; just like they were in the 50's at the height of the commie witch hunts.
