Texas plane crash believed to be intentional

AUSTIN, TEXAS (HawaiiNewsNow) - Federal Aviation Administration officials believe that the small plane crash in Austin, Texas may have been intentional. Officials say, the pilot set his home on fire beforehand, then crashed his private plane into the side of the Echelon building Thursday morning.

One person has been killed and another remains unaccounted for. Several others have been taken to the hospital.

The building houses several government buildings -- including the FBI -- but those offices were not hit. Witnesses say the plane was flying very low and erratically when it crashed into the building.
