    AUSTIN — Authorities say a small private plane has crashed into a seven-story office building in Austin, leaving one person inside unaccounted for.

    A person close to the investigation said the home of the suspected pilot, whose name was not released, burned down Wednesday night. The Cirrus SR22 took off from Georgetown at 9:40 a.m. today and struck the building at 9430 Research Boulevard in northwest Austin minutes later, federal officials said.
    CNN, quoting a federal official it did not name, reported the plane was stolen.

    The structure that was hit houses private firms and government offices, including the Internal Revenue Services' criminal investigation unit. The FBI is not a tenant, contrary to some initial reports.

    Black smoke was coming from the second and third stories of the the building at midday as fire crews using ladder trucks and hoses battled the fire. Austin Assistant Fire Chief Harry Evans said it appeared the plane struck the second floor.


    Police said two people were hospitalized and one was unaccounted for from the building. The conditions of the injured people were not immediately available.

    Evans said no deaths from inside the building were confirmed and the firefighting efforts continued as of 11:45 a.m.

    Police said there were several street closures and power outages in the area.

    The Austin American-Statesman reported that eyewitnesses said the plane appeared to strike the Echelon 1 building at full throttle.

    Peggy Walker, an IRS revenue officer who works in the building said she was sitting at her desk when the plane crashed.

    “It felt like a bomb blew off. The ceiling caved in and windows blew in. We got up and ran,” she said.

    Matt Farney, 39, who was in the parking lot of a nearby Home Depot, said he saw a low-flying private plane near some apartments and the office building just before it crashed.

    “I figured he was going to buzz the apartments or he was showing off,” Farney said, adding that the plane dipped down. “It was a ball of flames that was high or higher than the apartments. It was surreal. It was insane. ... It didn’t look like he was out of control or anything.”

    Chris Messer told the newspaper he was driving to work shortly before 10 a.m. when the small yellow plane flew in front of him and into the structure.

    “The fireball was pretty big. It shook my car and the heat came in from my air vents. I was surprised how big the explosion is,” said Messner, 27.

    Messner said the explosion was “as wide as the entire building.”

    What is wrong with people if they think it is perfectly acceptable to fly a plane into a building purposefully?

    Also see where a UAL flight was diverted after taking off from Denver due to a bomb threat.

    pretty serious stuff there. A lot of us have expressed such opinions here. Wonder if we should start looking around and taking a head count to see who won't be at TLW this year...

    haaha...yeah I know..too soon for jokes.

    Not sure if this applies here or not, but ever since 9/11, one of my bigger fears has been that some nut would pack a plane with explosives and take off from an uncontrolled airfield, which tend to have so little security it's scary.

    The Google search give reports that mostly all give the "Headline" plane struck a "building"....

    Very careful to not say plane struck the "IRS" building.....

    For whatever reasons...... The govt. will let the news outlets know when they can lead with "Plane struck IRS building"....

    I can't believe how much damage he did with that little plane. Obviously filled to the top with fuel.

    While stopping short of actually saying that it was what the guy did, the former NTSB investigator they have on CNN said that it looks like a whole lot more damage than 40-50 gals of AV-Gas would do.

    While his manifesto suicide note isn't the crazy rantings of a nut job, I still think it would be better served to his cause to have been an editorial in a newspaper or on some news sitem rather than a suicide note. He's failed in his cause because he is one man trying to take down a government agency. If you are going to start a revolution by martyring yourself while taking the first shot, you better make sure there is an army of people behind you willing to take up your gun and your battle cry and your cause. Instead of being seen as a poor guy who got screwed by the IRS tax codes and his CPA, he's going to be that crazy guy who flew his plane into a building full of people.
