This is still in the speculation stages. It may be true but they think the pilot was a software engineer (if he is the same guy that set his house on fire) and there were tech companies on the first floor so it also could have been he'd been recently laid off. There's nothing but speculation right now.

Just go to Twitter and search for Austin.

I wonder if the pilot was subject to an IRS investigation that used that building as an address? It is odd because that place is not what most in town associate with the IRS, our returns (and those in a 3-5 state region) go to the big complex at Ben White and I-35 (and which was a domestic terror target on McVeigh's list back in the 90s)

It's live on every news channel nationally. Dude set his own house on fire, so he was pretty upset about something and the IRS is often a target of rage for many who are in desperate straits.

Default Austin crash....

I know this didn't happen in SA...but Austin is our neighbor. Anyone watching the developments of the plane that crashed into an office building in Austin?
