That's after the pilot of the plane had set fire to his own house.

UPDATE: Man Sets House On Fire, Then Crashes Stolen Plane Into Austin Office Building (2/18/2010

"AUSTIN (February 18, 2010)—CNN is reporting that a man set his house on fire Thursday, stole a plane from the Georgetown airport and then crashed the aircraft into a multi-story building in Austin that houses Internal Revenue Service offices.

"CNN reported that NORAD launched two F-16s out of Ellington Air Force Base in Houston after the crash “out of an abundance of caution.”

"The plane was registered to Joseph Andrew Stack, the Federal Aviation Administration told an Austin TV station, whose house in north Austin burned Thursday morning.

"A neighbor rescued a woman and a girl from the burning house, according to Austin media reports." [The article continues.]

(... Oh wait, if that was his plane it wasn't a "stolen" plane as the headline indicates, was it?)
