Plane crashes in New York
An American Airlines flight crashes on takeoff into the NYC borough of Queens. The FAA says it was American Flight 587, an Airbus A300, flying from JFK airport to Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic.

The NYC Port Authority says there were 246 passengers and 9 crew on board.

All NYC area airports, bridges and tunnels leading into the city are closed.

Affiliate WCBS reports at least 4 buildings on fire and the New York Fire Department has dispatched 44 trucks and 200 firefighters.
Current speculation is that it was mechanical failure, mostly due to the engine being four blocks from the rest of the plane.

There have also been reports of explosions and/or fire before the plane went down. This has not yet been confirmed.

See http://asia.cnn.com/2001/US/11/12/ne...ash/index.html for the full story
