Repairs Continue 1 Year After Austin Plane Crash
AUSTIN (AP) – A Texas building where a tax protester killed himself by flying his small plane into the structure continues to be repaired a year later.
Friday was the first anniversary of the fiery crash into the Austin building where the Internal Revenue Service had offices.
The Austin American-Statesman reports new tenants could start moving into the multi-story building by the end of 2011.
Andrew Joseph Stack III died in the Feb. 18, 2010, crash he caused by flying his single-engine plane into Echelon I. An IRS worker, Vernon Hunter, was at work and was killed.
Kevin Kimball with KVA Inc., a management company that operates the building, says the damaged structural steel has been replaced.
Kimball says the next step is replacing the glass curtain wall exterior, followed by interior work.
