The Pentagon ordered fighter jets to scramble over several cities, including New York, Washington, Los Angeles and Seattle, yesterday following a plane crashing into New York skyscraper. [SN reported]
One of the two killed in the crash, Cory Lidle, was a pitcher with America's largest baseball club, the New York Yankees, after the plane, a Cirrus SR20, swerved off its path over the East River.
Michael Bloomberg, New York’s mayor said in a public address “Everybody is sensitive when a plane goes into a building. But homeland security sees no evidence of anything relating to terrorism or anything remotely like it."
