NEW YORK: A small aircraft has crashed into a building on Manhattan's Upper East Side, but a US official said there was no reason to believe it was terrorism-related.Of course the unnamed source has no idea whether it's terrorism-related or not but he knows what he's been told to say.
The small general aviation plane crashed on East 72nd St and York Avenue, near the East River, CNN reported, citing the Federal Aviation Administration.We can see from the photo that although the building is severaly damaged and burning, it has not yet disintegrated. But we're still waiting ... still waiting ... tick ... tick ... tick ...
A US official told Reuters there was no reason to believe the crash was an act of terrorism.Yes, we caught that the first time. And remember, the unnamed source has no idea whether it's terrorism-related or not.
The images of fire and smoke pouring out of the windows of a high rise building evoked images of the hijack plane attacks of September 11, 2001.Yes, we were noticing that. The photos are remarkably similar, are they not? So why didn't this NYC aparment building turn to powder? Any ideas?
Several helicopters have crashed over the years into or near the rivers flanking Manhattan.Ah, well, that explains it. It's amazing I didn't think of it myself! The building that was hit today failed to disintegrate because several helicopters have crashed into or near the rivers flanking Manhattan.
What? It makes as much sense as the one about the pancakes!
