not yet all they have said is the pilots dumped fuel then ejected but they dont know why the jet went down yet. they cant go into the building yet till they get the fire and smoke under control. Im trying to get more pics up sorry about the quality I can only get them off the tv.

I heard about this in the news as well..crazy! Have they figured out what the cause of it was?
so far what I have heard is that the pilots reported seeing flames over one of the wings and it sounds like there are reports of a wing may have come off or become loose but nothing has been confermed yet and so far I have heard of 2 people in the hospitol one was a pilot and one was from the complex. there will be more at 3 about injuries

Heres whats left of the plane

hey I saw that on the news the other night, it was on ABC night line, they said the pilots were okay.

its a miracle nobody got hurt. they said they were flying with just one engine, the other engine was not working, then something went wrong and the plane went down and they tried to land at the safest place as possible but not much the pilots could do.

Figured I would update this and yes like bluv3r18 it's amazing no one was killed only like 7 people were hurt. Even the navy said that it's amazing no one was killed, they have started giving out checks to people that were living there as well.
