Initially it was reported the Austin Resident Agency Office of the FBI was housed in the building. However, the FBI’s offices are adjacent to the building.

“isolated acts”

Only if it’s a muslim or a leftist. Otherwise it’s “unleash the dogs of all war, this is an attack on us all, this day shall live in infamy”

I know that's a rhetorical question, but the chances of that are astronomical.

That’s completely on the other side of town from the airport so it wasn’t like it was an approach accident.

Nothing at this point to indicate it was terrorism related FBI, via Fox.

IIRC, there is a small Army air field there from the good old days. Is it used for GenAv?

It appears that the pilot up until yesterday was a driver for Joe Biden’s motorcades.

from the extent of the fire, it looks like the pilot may have had some kind of accelerant on the plane. A small plane like that should not cause a fire that extensive, imho. It looks like the fire spread 100’s of feet horizontally to me, which seems unusual.
