Aircraft crashes into New York building


POSTED: 3:02 p.m. EDT, October 11, 2006

NEW YORK (AP) -- Police say an aircraft has crashed into a building on Manhattan's Upper East Side at 72nd Street and York Avenue. It is near Rockefeller Center.

There was no word on casualties.

Video from the scene shows at least three apartments in the high rise fully engulfed in flames.

It's unclear if it was a small plane or a helicopter.

Donald Rumsfeld in the Pentagon at 3:30pm...

"best info fast . . . judge whether good enough [to] hit Ahmednejad."
"Go massive . . . Sweep it all up. Things related and not."

Eyes and ears people...This building may collapse.

NORAD scrambling fighters over major US cities CNN reports.

Start archiving video and such.

Witness reported plane was doing "acrobatics" over East river, then leveled out and crashed straight into the building.

From this article: "Christine Monaco, a New York spokeswoman for FBI, said there was indication of terrorism in the crash, but that officials "have been sent to the scene as a routine." FAA spokesman Jim Peters said all three New York City-area airports are operating normally."

First contradiction
In this article: http://apnews.myway.com//article/20061011/D8KMKOFO4.html
"The initial indication is that there is a terrible accident," said Department of Homeland Security spokesman Russ Knocke.

FBI and Homeland Security are not yet reading from the same script it appears

I'm thinking it was an accident. Someone who had a heart attack or something. I could be wrong, but it just doesn't seem "big enough" to be an "attack."

Either way, it appears DIGG is censoring the incoming articles.

I'm now hearing on CNN that it was an NY Yankees baseball pitcher.
They know because the plane was his, and secondly, now get this, they found his ID on the ground at the crash site. I shit you not. They're reporting this on CNN.

Accident or not this is strange shit.

Can't believe this is such a big story on cable news. This should be local news, not national.

But I don't even remember who Mark Foley is anymore, and I don't remember anything about North Korea either. What is my name?

Did you guys hear that a plane crashed into a building in NY today?

I heard a Yankee's pitcher was the pilot.

10-11-2006, 07:11 PM
I wonder if this pitcher could have done this on purpose?
