Plane apparently exploded in the air, all crew apparently parachuted to safety, currently trying to locate them. An ambulance has left Broadus, but do not know if it is headed to the crash site probably some 30 miles east of Broadus.

kind of hard to believe it had a mid-air explosion.
all four crewman parachuted to safety.
gravity took over after the crew bailed out and the B1 crashed over in Carter County.

Two eye witnesses said there was an explosion before it crashed, and the news reports I have seen indicate there was an explosion before it crashed.

A clearly defined mushroom cloud was seen from my back door. A sound blast soon followed. Then, I lost my internet connection, which I have not yet regained.....

I think they were aiming for the Governor, he was in the area looking at CO2 oil well injection today, too....hmm, I smell a conspiracy.
