Appears to be an accident, not that that makes it any easier for anyone injured or suffering a loss. My thoughts are with everyone who will be jolted back to September 11. This must be so hard emotionally (not that any incident wouldn't be, but something like this even moreso).

CNN confirmed with the FAA that it was a fixed wing aircraft with visable flight rules. CNN also said that they had talked to an official at NORAD and several unnamed US cities will immediately have CAP(combat air patrols) by military jets over them. Most officials, as reported, have said there is no connection to terrorism with this crash so far.

Bono, if flying around NYC, would be in a helicopter and not a fixed wing small aircraft. So it's safe to say he's ok.

Well, hopefully it's a mistake, but the AP is usually diligent in its reporting.

Must have been a scary scene...

Exactly. Right now it's got to be madness down there. Later tonight there ought to be more conclusive reports.

Honest to god. I know it's a U2 forum, but jesus, enough already.

If it was your family who lived in that building would you care whether the hell or not Bono was involved?

I don't know if this was mentioned, the building is called The Bel-Air (sp?) Just saw a brief special report on ABC News (TV)


ETA: The plane hit the Belaire Condominiums, built in 1989 at 524 E. 72nd Street near the East River. More than 150 firefighters are on scene of a four-alarm fire in the building

Actually, I don't really give a flying f**k, but I was replying back to people talking about him somehow being in that aircraft. Of course that was in the other 2 threads about this subject which I thought I was on by mistake. In any case, I completely agree with your sentiments.

LOL. Wow.

Anyway, this is awful stuff. I saw the headline on Yahoo!News and my heart sank. I can't even imagine what people in that area are going through... talk about bringing back painful memories...
