    Re: Aircraft crashes into New York high rise building...

    I'm guessing one of two things: Mechanical failure on the part of the craft, and the pilot was unable to control the plane, or the pilot was suicidal.

    Certainly doesn't look like any terrorism going on here.

    If it's terrorism, then it has to be "Bush League" terrorism because fanaticals aren't going to target a high rise apartment building since it has no "symbolic value".

    For some perspective on this building's proximity to the river.

    Doubtful it's terrorism, it sounds like a freak accident. Might be weather related, it looks pretty crappy in NYC right now.

    CNN's Wolf Blitzer reporting that the aircraft left Teterboro Airport around 2:30 EST and seats 4.

    Teterboro is a general aviation airport that caters to general avation and exectutive aircraft.

    If it was flying up the east river is about 530 yards wide (IIRC from the barage of reports I've been following) so an aircraft in distress wouldn't have much room to operate both with altitude and manuvering room.

    Weather could also be a factor. An army air corps B25 flew into the Empire State Building in the early 1940's so it's not inconcievable.

    In the age of modern technology, where GPS is a vital source of navigation and where handheld GPS is more affordable than ever, there is no excuse for an airspace incursion of this magnitude.

    Chip, I wasn't trying to be political. If I did, it was totally by accident and I sincerely apologize.

    CNN reporting that first responders were told that a mayday was sent out from the small plane prior to impact.

    Not a confirmed report.

    Re: Aircraft crashes into New York high rise building...

    CNN's Anderson Cooper is interviewing a witness who claims to be in the building on the 46th floor. Said it was definatley a fixed wing aircraft but couldn't tell how many enginees. He felt the building shake upon impact. They tried to yell to people to get out as they started down the building. Experienced very heavy smoke around the 42nd/43rd floor.

    Fox News now reporting that the plane was registered to Yankee pitcher Cory Lidle. Conflicting reports that he was piloting the aircraft. Yankees are not commenting when aproached by Fox News. Not confirmed.

    NYC reports are saying the plane was registered by Cory Lidle, the pitcher.

    Fox now saying there are reports he was flying the plane at the time of the crash.

    CNN reporting that Cory does fly, does have a plane at Teterboro and was planning to fly out of NYC today.

    Again, unconfirmed.

    EDIT: Aircraft reported to be SR-20 which is a fixed wing aircraft.
