Man sets house on fire, crashes plane into Texas building: Report

Thursday, February 18, 2010

A Texas man set his house on fire, then stole a small plane and crashed it into a building containing a federal tax office Thursday, CNN reported citing federal officials.

“This was apparently – according to an official – a deliberate act,” CNN anchor Tony Harris said. “Joseph Andrew Stack is the name of the pilot.”

The plane struck the second floor of the four story building in Austin, Texas about 10 am (1600 GMT) and burst into flames in a massive explosion Thursday that forced people to flee out of the windows, witnesses and officials said.

There was “no known link to terrorism” the Department of Homeland Security said, noting that the cause of the crash was not yet known.

However, North American Aerospace Defense Command launched two F-16 fighter aircraft from Ellington Field in Houston today to conduct an air patrol in response to the crash.

“This response from NORAD is a prudent precaution and consistent with our response to recent similar air incidents,” Jamie Graybeal, spokesperson for NORAD, said in a statement.

HOUSTON – In an interview with KLBJ radio, a woman says she believes the plane that crashed into an Austin office building on Thursday is that of an in-law who burned his house down the night before.

“My little niece is his step daughter,” said the woman in an interview with KLBJ radio. “He burned their house down last night. My sister had gone over there last night to get them out of the house. They spent the night in a motel.”

The woman, whose name was not immediately clear, went on to say the man’s plane is now missing. She says the incident started as a domestic dispute.

“They checked before ten o’clock. His plane is gone. His car is at the hangar in Round Rock.”

The woman says the description of the plane that crashed in Austin matches the description of the woman’s family member.
