Commercial Aircraft Down Near Olney?

Rumors are flying. (Thanks emailer Mike.) Edit: As a commenter pointed out, CNN says it was an Air Force C-17. Edit: Wichita Falls paper says, "Hold on. We're not so sure about that." CNN the altered its sources to say "callers to police said" instead of "an Air Force spokesperson said." Edit: Uh, false alarm.

Wichita Falls has an Air Force base. If AA flights are accounted for, maybe a military "low and slow"?

Rumors are "flying"? That was not intentional, I bet, since it's such a common phrase.

The Wichita Falls Record Online says Sheppard does not fly C-17s, and Sheppard has not been notified of any crashes. Hmm.

Might have been out of NASJRB Fort Worth. Aircraft from there typically head west for training runs before looping back to FW.

Altus AFB has those big planes

We're drugs or alcohol involved?

As they always say, "Only in Olney". Reports are that the numbers of federal housing residents have converged on the scene hoping it as Federal Bailout money on board. They are searching the area for money in hopes of moving out of Olney.

1:10, No, we're not. At least we're not as far as I know, but then I only know myself. I don't know you well enough to know if you are drugs or alcohol involved. So, are you involved with drugs or alcohol? And why on earth do you ask question whether or not we are involved?

The search was called off about 1:10...no wreckage found.

Ok, post a pick-me-up or random thought and we'll forget this every happened.

False Alarm? Kind of a whoops...we just thought a very large plane crashed. It was actually ...a trash fire? A large bird landing in a tree? A combination of the two? Geez.

They say meth will make you imagine things. Bet that is what happened over there in Olney. Meth lab on the move since al Law Enforcement was looking for a large plane crash.

How in the heck can you "think" a plane crashed!??? Was one on the radar then NOT on the radar? Did someone see something like a plane go down and go boom? Was the tower speaking to a pilot that was having "trouble"...then *poof* no more talk? WHAT THE HECK?????
