KVUE’s Noelle Newton reports most of the windows are blown out. People were evacuated. At least 3 people have been taken to University medical Center at Brackenridge. A witness told KVUE that it didn't appear the plane was having any trouble before it crashed, but it was flying very low.
Some witnesses reported that they thought the plane was headed for their building. Witnesses say the impact felt like an explosion.

I am praying right now that there is no other incident today, if so, we are toast.
All of us.

Does anyone else find it interesting that the building that was hit by the plane is right next to the Austin FBI headquarters building? Did someone miss their target?
It seems to be more than just a coincidence in my opinion.

I wonder if it had any suspicious lumps on the bottom. Because for the size of plane and the type of building it should not have been that bad, even if it was 100% full with fuel. Add to that all of the federal buildings there, especially the FBI building next door to it. Then immediately they said it was not a terrorist, how do they know? Do they know the guy who was flying the plane already? I highly doubt it! If it is declared a terrorist attack the Repubs will have a field day!
Edit to add: Maybe Joe Biden was right!

MSNBC just had a report from an eye witness who is also a private pilot and said it was unquestionably a Cherokee 140 and that it was going about as fast as those 140s go.

CNN is reporting that the plane was stolen from an airport in Georgetown. Coward wouldn't even crash his own plane. And an SR22 is a NICE plane!
