    I'm hearing the pilot set his house on fire before stealing the plane used in this incident.

    I've read the same - that he set his house on fire before.
    And
    it's spreading like crazy on Twitter that it is linked to this letter: Well Mr. Big Brother IRS man... take my pound of flesh and sleep well.

    Texas Small Plane Crash Might Be Intentional Act, Officials Say

    Thursday, February 18, 2010



    Fox News

    Feb. 18: A small plane crashed into an office building in Austin, Texas.
    #story .gallery_container p.caption{display:none !important;} #story .gallery_container p.strut{color:#000;} Feb. 18: A small plane crashed into an office building in Austin, Texas.






    Officials are investigating whether a small plane that crashed into an office building in Austin, Texas, Thursday morning was an intentional act, an NTSB official told Fox News.
    An NTSB spokesman, however, told FoxNews.com that "we can't confirm any of that."
    Authorities said they have identified the pilot as Joseph Andrew Stack.
    The small single-engine plane crashed into a seven-story office building in Austin around 10 a.m. local time Thursday.
    The FAA said a Piper Cherokee took off from an airport in Georgetown, Texas, at 9:40 a.m. and crashed into the building in Austin shortly thereafter. Officials are investigating whether Stack, 53, owned the plane or stole it.

    Stuart Newberg, who was in the area right before the crash, said the plane was flying low and fast, according to The Statesman.com.
    “It was flying low and fast and I did a double take," Newberg said, according to the Web site.
    "I thought it was a play remote control plane. Then I saw the smoke."
    He told the paper he thought the plane seemed “very controlled.”
    Harry Evans, an assistant chief with the Austin Fire Department, said one person from the building was unaccounted for. He said two have been taken to a hospital.
    "There may be other injuries, we are unsure at this time," Evans said during a news conference Thursday.
    An Internal Revenue Service office is located inside the building.
    IRS Agent William Winnie said he was on the third floor of the building when he saw a light-colored, single engine plane coming towards the building, TheStatesman.com reported.
    “It looked like it was coming right in my window,” Winnie said, according to the Web site.

    Okay, so basically he gave into his situation and while giving the finger to the man screwed countless others without vaseline who may have refunds delayed, payments unaccounted for by an attack with a plane. How unoriginal.

    I pray for all those involved and affected by this action.

    Not to mention Scotty that early reports are that he set the fire to his house with his wife and 12 year daughter inside.
