10/11 in NYC today

9:35 PM Israel Time; All indications continue to point to this incident as an accident, but terror has not been ruled out.

9:32 PM, Israel time. NORAD launching fighter aircraft to provide air patrol coverage around several US cities as a precautionary measure.


Terror related? 10.11 plane/helicopter hits residential building on 72cnd street/York Ave.

Im sitting in my chair in my living room, as a I get an SMS message of a plane hitting a building in NY.

TV is on, watching on 5 channels at the same time. A 50 story condominium residential tower. 52 E 7scnd st.

Fire and emergency vehicles racing to scene...

Recollections going through my head. Im going to post this and keep watching.

Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael

they're saying the plane belonged to ny yankees' cory lidle's and it is very possible that he was piloting the plane at the time of the crash.

It wasn't a terrorist attack, as bec noted above, the plane was being piloted by a Yankees pitcher. People on the ground said they saw the plane having difficulties before it crashed. Lidle has, or had, a wife and a six year old boy. The police haven't released anything about the other passenger yet. Thankfully no one inside the building was killed.

Lidle tossed a wild pitch, unfortunately.
