    “It was flying low and fast and I did a double take. I thought it was a play remote control plane. Then i saw the smoke,” Newberg said.

    When asked if the plane seemed to be out of control, he said it seemed “very controlled.”

    IRS offices located in the building per Fox News.
    No confirmation where the plane was from. Single engine small aircraft.
    May not have been an accident may have been intentional.
    Pilot set his own house on fire then got into plane and flew plane into building. Source NTSB vis Fox News.

    FBI spokesman Bill Carter said the building hit by a plane at the Echelon office complex did not contain an FBI office. While the FBI has an office at the complex, the plane did not crash into that particular building, Carter said.

    Our first clue was the IRS office in Waco was evacuating...we are a fed agency housed in a multi-use building in Waco, and the IRS is one of the fed agencies on the same floor as us. They came to let us know they were evacuating until mid-afternoon. Other fed agencies are not evactuating at this time.

    Also,

    They mentioned Waco Airport about a half hour ago...I didn't catch it, is that where the plane took off from, did anyone catch that?

    Yeah, I think this dude has a bone to pick with the IRS. Wfgodt stated that the plane was out of Waco.

    Glad your okay Dawg! Must of been a little scary.
