    At this time, the Homeland Defense dept. says that this is NOT terrorist related. It appears it was a Cessna plane being flown by a 15 year old kid and had taken off from a nearby airport without authorization. It had also been followed closely by a Coast Guard helicopter before it crashed into the Bank of America building in Tampa. It crashed into the 28th floor. Luckily, at this time, no one else was injured in the building.

    Aviation experts and local authorities are speculating it could be either a suicide flight or copy-cat crash like 9-11.

    My question is why didn't the CG just shoot the plane down?

    WOW !! I hear ya guys...we need to get the facts on how a 15 yr old can get a Cessna and fly...

    We (as a country) are a long way from having safe airports. I hope I dont have to fly anytime soon.

    Why can't a 15 yr old get one and fly? Theres no age limit on flying a plane as there is a car.
    So long as you have enough class hours and flight time, pass the test your just as good as the seasoned pilot getting in one. Maybe they were familiar with this kid. Student possibly?

    Maybe the local dispatch for the Coast Guard was a former Bank of America customer. If a building has to come down, one of theirs would get my vote.

    Man that's classy. Are you serious with that statement? Oh I get it, Bank of America only has Republicans working in that building. Out.

    I have no idea, nor do I care what their political affiliation is. However, that particular financial institution went out of their way to make my life a living Hell for several years, so let's just say I wouldn't have shed a single tear for that company if it had been the building hit on 9/11.

    For the people working in the building, YES.
    For that corporation, fuck no!
