I was not flying over East Texas but I was flying from Beaumont to College Station approximatley 1 hour after the event. I was IFR and diverted about 30 miles North to pin point a position on some burning debris. On 121.5, flight restrictions were being posted continuously. It started at a 60 nautical mile radius and the last I heard it was increased to 90 miles. I did have a friend who was flying on his solo cross country and happened to be in Nacadoches. When he called Flight Service, they advised him the airport was closed. He was finally ableto take off, but could only head West. I did hear periodically other GA flights being redirected to pin point possible debris. Anyways what a sad day and I had chills everytime I heard it mentioned on the radio.
Propeller, we don't need no stinkin propeller
