NORAD launched two F-16’s in response to the crash.
Witnesses reported the plane made a sharp banking turn before it hit the building. Another witness who drives on Texas State Highway Route 183 that passes the Echelon building, reported that he had never seen low flying planes near the building.

A house fire is also reported in the 1800 block of Dapplegrey Lane in Austin, Texas that is reported to be the pilot’s house. The house was fully involved with fire when firefighters arrived on the scene. The man’s daughter later told police that her dad started the house on fire at about 9:00 a.m.
