They're saying that it crashed into a 50 story apartment building with fires on two floors right now. At the moment, there's no indication that this was a terrorist hijacking.

Oh gosh, that's horrible! Whether it was a hijacking or not, it's so awful to hear...

What could've happened?

EDIT:Apparently, there's a heliport half a mile from the building. It's likely the aircraft was a helicopter air-lifting someone from a hospital, and got caught in the bad weather. That's really sad...

It was reported that the plane was owned by New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle, and that he had fuel problems.

I heard.. It's really horrible if he was the one piloting it. Not to be morbid or anything but.. that'd be such a huge blow to the Yankees, especially after getting kicked from the playoffs .___.

It's horrible any way you look at it.

EDIT: New York Officials confirmed that a Yankees player was on board, meaning it's more then likely it was him... That's awful ;__;

Not to be rude but you could be more mature in this type of situation.

Cory Lidle..........yeah. ;__;

Good thing that it only hit 2 stories of the building and the people in that apartment wren't harmed.

It'll probably be no more than the plane that crashed at LaGuardia a few years back.

If it was a terrorist, I don't think they'd crash into an apartment building of all the things they could crash into in New York...

Sad though. .-.

Not a terrorist. A member of the New York Yankees was piloting it. It was a small plane. Somehow he ended up crashing into the building. Normally, if you know you're in trouble you try to crash into an empty space, so you don't take people down with you. He probably had a heart attack or something prior to the collision.

Well think about it...

NEW YORK

How much empty space IS there? Especially if it was an apartment building it crashed into. That means it was probibly in the city. Most likely, he knew that, but he didnt have time to change direction.

The other guy on board was his flight instructor. The baseball player was from Glendora, California. I mentioned that because on another Forum called Nerf HQ this guy Falcon lives near there. Also The baseball player was trying to make a U-turn.:(

It appears that the plane did have power when it crashed. One propeller was snapped at the tip and the other was severaly bent, indicating that the engine most likely didn't fail. It'll be a long time before the investigation is complete though. I saw a 3D display of the flight course and crash and it's kind of peculiar how it was going in a fairly straight route, then all of a sudden goes into a U-turn and smacks into the building. I just hope it wasn't planned suicide or anything like that. o.o;;

My thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends of Corey Lidle and his flight instructor.

If I was a terrorist, I'd aim for a building with political significance, mrplanters. Don't go making random accusations.

Oh dear, this is rather sad though. ._.; IMO baseball has nothing to do with it & worrying over the fate of the Yankees is sort of pathetic; I mean, the poor guy and his flight instructor -- I think that's a ton worse.

This wasn't terrorism. ~_~ It was a baseball player.

And it's funny that this happened on October 11TH.

I don't believe this one was. They would not attack an apartment. I believe it was some engine/wing problems.

It was loss of communication with the control tower, methinks.

Very well could be...

I take that back, they would attack an apartment, but with a car bomb, c4, ect. not a plain/suicide.

Even though I'm late and everything. I was upset when I heard about this and the fact that he was a new Yankee also. He didn't deserve to die
