I was just about to post this. I'm a conf call with some guys in NYC and they mentioned it.
Scary. Everyone is on edge up here.
I was up midtown when it happened at 37th street, I'm glad I wasn't 35 streets higher . I wondered why I heard so many sirens while I was at CompUSA.
Luckily the damage was minimal, but I'm sending the people involved my positive energy.
That's frightening. Crashing into the middle floors of a 50-story building which houses apartments that go for more than $1 million? In Manhattan? And the aircraft was on VFR and didn't have to be in contact with controllers? Hard to imagine that was an accident....
Man, I hope nobody was home in those apartments, and that the building was safely evacuated. Too soon to know anything for sure, though.
It sure doesn't look like the 20th floor of a 50-story building...
Good times here in NYC! Im at 40th & 3rd approximately 1.2 miles or 30 block from the crash. lots of sirens and fire trucks going by and an occasional fighter jet.
People dont seem too concerned on the streets.
well, thats a sight i was hoping i would never have to see again.
Seems a bit iffy to me. They were flying VFR but its not foggy/cloudy and they still crashed? Thats one **** pilot!
Isn't today Wednesday?
obviously a conspiracy!
Its Wednessday here on 40th street but it appears to be Thursday on 72nd.
if i look uptown i am peering into the future?
"Eye witness on tv has just said she saw a small four seater fixed wing "doing acrobatics" just prior to the event which has confused reports for the moment. She didn't say she saw it hit. She wanted to make it plain it wasnt a helicopter. BBC are now reporting the FAA view that it was FW."
Apparently it's mutli-engine.
It's definitely Thursday here.
Not sure what "Wednesday" would mean, because I think the attacks were on a Tuesday, if I am remembering correctly.
What IS odd is that today is October 11. Scary...
10/11/6 backward and upsidedown is 9/11/01
Now, THAT's interesting... didn't even notice that.
They are saying this was Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle....
reports are that he was on the plane
Yes, several different sources have reported to CNN that it was Lidle's plane.
Article mentioning that it was Lidle's plane.
Isn't that the building from spiderman?
Perhaps it was the green goblin
now that's just not right....
Seems pretty definitive.
So was he looking for a lost ball or is he just a crap pilot?
A blurb in the CNN article mentions there might have been a fuel problem.
