    NEW YORK - A small plane crashed into a high-rise on the Upper East Side, setting off a fire and startling New Yorkers, police said.


    Fire Department spokeswoman Emily Rahimi said an aircraft struck struck the 20th floor of a building on East 72nd Street. Witnesses said the crash caused a loud noise, and burning and falling debris was seen. Flames were seen shooting out of the windows. Video from the scene showed at least three apartments in the high rise fully engulfed in flames.

    There was no immediate word on any deaths or injuries.

    It was not immediately known if it was a terrorist act.

    Aircraft crashes into Manhattan high-rise

    NEW YORK (CNN) -- An aircraft has crashed into the middle of a brick luxury high-rise residential building on Manhattan's Upper East Side at 72nd Street and York Avenue, police officials said.

    The building is very close to the East River. There was no word on casualties as firefighters battled the flames that shot up from several windows in the middle of the building. The Federal Aviation Administration has said a "general aviation" aircraft had hit the building.

    A North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) spokesperson, which monitors air traffic, told CNN that it had not been tracking the aircraft.

    Witness Sarah Steiner told CNN that fires were burning on the ground. "It looks like the plane just flew into someone's living room there."

    "It looks as if the aircraft didn't go into the building but fell down," she said. "It may be part of the debris burning on the ground."

    Steiner said that when she arrived, she saw fire shooting out of two windows on the 30th floor of the 50-story building.

    Ooooh. REally big bummer. Hopefully no one was hurt.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    Two confirmed dead, person in plane and person on ground where plane fell.
    Most likely more dead...

    Most likely just an accident at this point.

    Witness Henry Neimark, who is also a pilot, said he saw a plane flying at relatively low altitude which seemed to come from LaGuardia International Airport.

    "It looked to me in retrospect that this was a pilot desperately trying to get back to the airport and land safely on a runway," he said.

    CNN said they recieved information from the scene that the pilot had sent out a distress call just before the crash.
    Not definate yet though.
