    It seems that in Milan Italy an air craft (They haven't said how big or of what type) hit what they suspect to be a government office building.

    They're saying it's a Piper. It was a flight from Bulgaria to Rome. The plane radioed an SOS before the crash. It is a tourist plane otherwise known as a charter or privately owned craft. Italian officials are saying that they suspect terrorist activity.

    There was an SOS radioed in before the crash, and it appears (from these scattered reports) that the SOS contained reports of technical difficulty.

    That would seem to exclude a terrorist activity.

    The building struck was the Corelli building, just as rush hour was beginning. It struck the 25th and 26th floors. The fire is extinguished. The corelli building is the tallest concrete structure in the world.

    Listening to CNN... but I figured that you might want to know. No word on the injuries/fatalities yet

    The Italian government is saying it's an accident.....

    ...call my cynical, but it seems pretty unlikely that a plane flying from Slovenia or Swizterland or Bulgaria (I've heard all three) to Rome, would hit the tallest building in Milan by accident, even if it did have mechanical failure.

    Back in the '40s a B-25 hit the Empire State building due to bad weather.

    That's right. That's what my brother was thinking when he went into his office building when the second plane hit. Got up to his office, looked at the devastation, and was evacuated.

    I agree with you. Unless steering went completely out... and there's still ways to maneuver with flaps and such... maybe they had total mechancial failure?

    Hi ... i'm from italy .
    I saw on the tv the crash .
    The little piper was flying from swiss to milan .
    there was a 75 years old pilot on the piper .
    it seems that due to a problem on the engine of the piper the pilot give an SOS to the Linate milan airport then it crashed on the Pirelli building . It was at 5.35 pm .
    In Italy they exclude a terrorist thing .

    the strange thing is that the fly was flying in a no fly area in Milan up on the center . they sayd it was flying there trying to reach the Linate airport of Milan , by-passing the no flying zone .

    2 or 3 people died on the crash .

    On the Tv they talked about the man on the fly well-know as a good flyer and a good men .

    No terrorist suspect finally , but ... this thing it make me think .

    Ya know ... i have been in Milan for works 2 times and at about 1 miles from there .
    My God .

    Btw ... keep the finger crossed .

    C ya guys .
