Yankee Pitcher Killed in Manhattan Plane Crash
All fears of a terrorist attack dropped

A single-engine plane carrying the Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle smashed into a 42-story building on the Upper East Side yesterday, killing Mr. Lidle and his flight instructor.

The plane, owned by Mr. Lidle, was a Cirrus SR20, a four-seat propeller plane that is popular for its performance and sleek looks. It has a fixed landing gear reminiscent of a stunt plane. With two sets of controls, officials said, either Mr. Lidle or his instructor could have been flying it.

Mr. Lidle, 34, a pilot for less than a year who was traded to the Yankees in the summer, had talked enthusiastically about flying to his home in California this week.

Full story and photos originally published in NY Times.

We can all just breathe now, parting with all the thoughts of a new terrorist attack. I am now pretty sure no air borne object will ever crash into an American building without yielding thoughts of threat and terror in everyone’s mind.

    Iata ca Engleza ta poate fi impecabila! Si ce daca este vorba de 'copy & paste'!?!... Bravo!

    True, English is perfect if you copy/paste stuff from the right source. Which are the mistakes in my part? Please tell me so that I can learn a thing or two from you and the English you don't speak/write. BTW, to feel more like a NYT reporter, how about you start being my editor for free?

    Ali, I think your English skills are impressing and don't let anyone tell you different.
    As for the anonymous, maybe you should bear in mind that if you can't express yourself in a correct and exhaustive English this doesn't mean that there aren't people who can. And how about telling us your identity and blog URL, if available?

    Cris, thanks. You will find it that people in the blogosphere judge your English skills only by typos and other wrtiting mishaps. What amazes me the most is that it's not the native speakers who are that critical.

    The death of the player and the others was a very sad thing. The thought of this being another terriost attack probably was on a lot of folks mind too.

    if it were a terrorist attach, no one would cover it up. It would be used as another excuse for that obnoxious war on terror that should have been ended a long time ago!
