    Sounds like the cloud base was at 1800feet which is very low.

    Distraction (CFIT), stall, mechanical issue, or loss of control due to avoiding other traffic below this altitude would likely have a tragic outcome as there is very little time for recovery.

    One eye witness on CNN reported that the plane was "zig zagging" as it came down. Now CNN is showing a graphic of a radar tracking program preporting to be the crash aircraft. The aircraft is climbing very rapidly as it commensed it's turn to the south. Suddenly the aircraft loses altitude at a tremendous rate and falls. This is all very preliminary but it sounds like a stall scenario.

    I turned on in the middle of the comments, but the fact that they were discussing this even at all is disgusting.

    Cory Lidle...that's insane. I heard this earlier but had no idea it was him.

    I pray to God that's not true.
    That would be more horrible.

    It's already horrible.

    I've actually worked in a TV newsroom, so I have a different view on whether this is appropriate.

    What else does ESPN know about but the big picture on sports? If they're going to cover this story in any kind of extended fashion, it makes more sense for ESPN to discuss the impact on Lidle's ballclub than to have John Kruk expound on the finer points of aviation. People who get info on this story from ESPN want to know the story from the sports angles.

    Now they're saying he had a six year old son. This is going to be really hard on that boy.

    Although Cory Lidle is not of the same stature both personally and professionally, don't you think that if ESPN was around when Roberto Clemente was killed that it would have been inappropriate to say as a lead in "boy, that's really gonna hurt the Pirates chances next year?" I can play devil's advocate as well as anyone, but I sure am not gonna try to say that was "just a matter of perspective" on this one.

    You've really got to wonder if the Mets and Cardinals will play tonight.

    I was wondering the same thing...not that I think they should postpone- I think without question they should play, but I can't help but wonder.

    But if they were going to postpone, I think they would have said so by now.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
