A report of the crash at Seventh Avenue and West 49th Street came in shortly before 2 p.m. No other details were immediately available.

was he using an iPhone for directions?
Heavy rain and fog here in NYC. Helicopters come down all the time. This is a filler headliner for today's local news. Nothing more.

And yet USA today put a huge red "breaking news" banner on their page about it.

Cheap sensationalism always ledes. See if it's there tomorrow.

light aircraft on a steel-framed curtain glass building. What did you expect? Of course they felt it.

here's last month's May 15th helicopter crash. Big headlines, then...blank. Bet you forgot about it. Just like you will with this one.

NEW YORK (Reuters) [www.reuters.com] - A helicopter crashed into the Hudson River in New York City on Wednesday shortly after taking off from Manhattan, causing minor injuries to the pilot and a dockworker, police and fire officials said.

Dramatic video footage of the incident shot by witnesses and posted on social media showed the helicopter spinning seemingly out of control over the Hudson near 30th Street, before plummeting into the water.

A 767 is not exactly a “light aircraft”

The crane collapse in Dallas caused more damage and killed one person. Now it's g-o-n-e.

Where was the alarmist post about that?

That's a LONG time for a crane to be in flight.



It is what it is.

Cracks me up when Steve G tries to tell everyone what they should consider to be news and what they should not.

The crane collapse footage that I saw was horrifying. We had one here some years ago on Second Ave. that destroyed a nice, small apartment building and damaged some bigger ones. I try to avoid those things.

Check with me on Thursday to see what the actual news coverage is.
Keyboarding everything in sight is not a well-considered post, or even in fun (which is the occasional jape of any forum member).

Where was the alarmist post about that?

When did that happen? I remember the one in, I think, Seattle.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

.....tell that to the people who experienced it live......when you feel a shake in the building you are working....and you don't know what is actually happening [ it could have been another terrorist attack ].......


......yeah, after the fact only one person died [sarcasm]......but in the heat of the moment [ yes, when I posted it, it was live and no one knew what was really happening ].........
