CNN says apartment buildings completely engulfed in flames.

That is a bit of an overstatement. It is a bad fire but it looks like part of a couple of floors.

Well, Shepard Smith just said "there's absolutely nothing to indicate that this was terrorism."

Thanks, Shep, for your insight. /sarcasm

It probably wasn't. A terr would have chosen a higher profile target.

I would surmise a trafic helicopter. The building is directly on the river and would be easily in range if a trafic helicopter went down.

Remember the one that crashed on top of the PanAm building on 42nd St? They closed the heliport permanently after that. People on the ground were killed.

A black helocopter?

Seriously this could be an accident or it could be a copycat like the young muslim kid in Tampa who flew a light plane into an empty office building right after 9-11-01.

Now it makes more sense. I didn't know it was a helicopter when I posted. It must have been leaving or going to a heliport.

Witness on MSNBC said that it didn't look like the copter or plane was aiming for the building, but appeared to be in distress and striking more of a glancing blow. Was descending at a steep angle, with an odd noise.

But of course Freepers who weren't there will immediately claim that the gov't is covering up a terrorist act.

My mom just called me to ttell me about this - she lived two blocks away from this location at 72nd/Park - I guess this was 72nd/York, on departure from LaGuardia.

God bless them.

Or any businessman for that matter. I don't know many people who wouldn't fork over the $100 to get to one of the airports from Manhattan during rush hour.

Well, my point is that since there's no clear indication that it was an airplane vs. a helicopter, isn't it a bit premature to make any kind of judgments vis a vis terrorism either way?

Eyewitnesses report what appears to be an aircraft in trouble before hitting building. Unclear whether it was a small plane or helicopter, per various NYC newscasts.
