Looks like one, but in Tampa about a year and a half ago, the same thing happened and it was some kid wanting to play talaban that did it.

Plane crash

Even weirder is that the pilot (who died) of the plane was Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle. Plane apparantly had some sort of mechanical problem after takeoff.

News reports say the the plane was a Cirrus SR-20, one of the only planes that incorporates an emergency airframe parachute. You can actually deploy a giant parachute that is attached to the plane which brings the whole plane to a safe, soft landing in case of emergency.

If his plane was equipped with this feature, I wonder why he he didn't just "pull the cord"?

Panic makes you forget these things sometimes.

OMG I was right by there. I work literally down the street. Yaz the weather was rainy and probably windy. You have to remember those tall buildings are pretty much canyone walls and there are all types of freaky weather conditions. But I saw two helos hovering and I am like wtf? For some it must be a flashback of 9/11. Its a shame when we are like thank God its an accident and not terrorist. RIP

'Tell the truth and shame the devil,' my mom used to say, but she forgot that sometimes you can't shame Mr. Splitfoot sober. The Irish know, but of course they're God's white ni##$rs and who knows, maybe they're a step ahead."

Beer, of course, is actually a depressant. But poor people will never stop hoping otherwise.

CNN had reported that other planes in the area had reported seeing it weaving in and out of buildings. He was also reportedly with his pilot trainer when this happened. RIP.
