A plane crashed in Queen's New York. It's a terrible tragedy on it's own, so let's not start making assumptions that it's another terroist attack.

My mom said the FBI said they don't think it's terrorism...... not that it makes this any better but i dont think any of us can take another terrorist attack, esp by air......

For whatever it's worth, I would assume it's not a terrorist attack. Of course the FBI at this point can't assume anything, but I would be at least mildly surprised if it is.

I really don't think that it is a terrorist act either, but you never know. It sounds like an accident so far though.

246 passengers on board, 9 crew...

I have to leave for work, everybody. Let's pray it was an accident. Even if it was an accident, pray for those poor people though.

For those who can't access the main site, asia.cnn.com and europe.cnn.com are still working. Not that they have much info at this point.

Dutch newspaper says the crash-site isn't far from a storage facility for petrol.

It was an American Airlines flight bound for the Dominican Republic, crashed 5 minutes after takeoff in Rockaway, which is a shoreline community in Queens. They are saying 270+ people on board, plus several homes on the ground burning.

There are no indications of terrorism at this point - there were no communications from the cockpit at all indicating anything was going on with the plane. Of course that is what we are all thinking right out of the gate.

I just had the scare of my life - my brother-in-law was in the air bound for New York when I heard this news - but I have found out he is safe and has been diverted to Detroit. My prayers out to everyone impacted by this.

New York has certainly had a crap fall.

Peace

CNN says witnesses saw some sort of 'explosion' and that one engine came down separately from the rest of the plane.
