Loud Explosion in DC, Maryland, Virginia – No Threat – Updates


Update: A small plane flew over DC, even the White House, and then crashed in rural Virginia.

ABC News reports that fighter pilots believe the pilot was passed out in the cockpit.

A flight tracking website shows the craft had made it to its initial destination, Long Island MacArthur Airport in New York, but appears not to have landed — instead heading back toward the D.C. area. A fourth source said that the White House and U.S. Capitol were put on high alert but not “red alert,” which would have triggered an evacuation.

We can’t believe anything this administrationg reports. We’ll wait and see

Update: If this is it, it’s probably just a sonic boom.
