Damnit I was just looking for a link. Oh well...looks like a lot of people's heads are gonna roll after this.
2001-11-12 09:42:35 AM  
oh christ, here we go again
2001-11-12 09:42:37 AM  
Step 1: Find out if it was terror or something else.
2001-11-12 09:42:52 AM  
767 , engine exploded, American Airlines, crashed into Queens

no more info at this time
2001-11-12 09:43:02 AM  
It was an incoming jet to a nearby airport, so let us all hope (pray if you are religious) that this is an accident.
2001-11-12 09:43:57 AM  
Are they assuming terrorist, or just a crash this link dosnt have that much info. Porb cause it just happened a little while ago.
2001-11-12 09:44:00 AM  
Oh, sure, Osama did it. Yessiree. They found his body among the debris, or something. *licks Imabmf's asshole*
2001-11-12 09:44:02 AM  
Modernhamlet is right. Calm down people. There'll be plenty of time to figure out why *this* plane went down. Most of the victims are already dead, and the evidence isn't going anywhere.
2001-11-12 09:44:09 AM  
dammit i have to fly tomorrow cross country.

this better be a fluke.
2001-11-12 09:44:16 AM  
Not a terrorist attack guys. No one crashes into brooklyn on purpose. It was obviously going to JFK and the pilot did an "osama" accidently.
2001-11-12 09:44:18 AM  
ModernHamlet: You're right, we can't immediately jump to conclusions here. It could just be a coincidence... I hope...
2001-11-12 09:44:51 AM  
So they closed all the NY airports now. This plane was flying to JFK. I wish there was more information, flight numbers, something...
2001-11-12 09:44:52 AM  
from the description i heard on the radio... the plane spiraled down to the ground.. that's indicitive of an engine brunout and resulting in an uncontrolled spin.... most likely an accident.. but i still be keepin fingers crossed
2001-11-12 09:45:19 AM  
Oops, meant Queens. Even worse area.
2001-11-12 09:45:30 AM  
If you have info, please state your source.
2001-11-12 09:45:56 AM  
From the bbc site: (

An American Airlines flight on its way to John F Kennedy airport has crashed in New York.
At least four buildings in the Rockaway Beach area of the city's borough of Queens are on fire.

It is not known why the aircraft crashed or how many people were on board, or in the buildings now ablaze.

New York Mayor Rudolph Guiliani is on his way to the crash site and has called a level one alert.

(Some Guy),
Is there any good place for a plane crash?
2001-11-12 09:46:48 AM  
Think they were going after Clintons office?
2001-11-12 09:47:16 AM  
I HOPE it's an accident...
2001-11-12 09:47:25 AM  
It's a sad world we live in when we're all praying this is just a "normal" plane crash. fark.
2001-11-12 09:47:25 AM  
As soon this came up on the news I started refreshing waiting for the coverage. They say it's supposed to be in Jamaica around 129th & Newport. Here's the map I found which is supposed to be close to that area.

2001-11-12 09:50:09 AM  
Maybe Osama was afraid of Tony Soprano?

*trying to whistle past the graveyard*
2001-11-12 09:50:29 AM  
Bluefenderstrat: Amen. Quite frightening, too.
2001-11-12 09:50:41 AM

Of course this sucks no matter how ya look at it.

A plane crashed Monday morning in the Queens section of New York, and buildings reportedly were on fire in the neighborhood.

The plane crashed shortly after 9 a.m. and thick, black smoke could be seen in televised reports.

The type of plane and number of people aboard were not immediately known. CNN reported that American Airlines confirmed the plane was an inbound American Airlines Boeing 767. The airline told The Associated Press it had no immediate comment.

it seems like nice place to crash. Low rise building and a big field.
