    Yes

    There are reports the plane hit a number of homes near Rockaway beach. One eyewitness said pieces of the plane were falling off mid-air.

    This is awful, makes you think twice.

    I fly about half a dozen times a year, possibly flying to JFK in April!!!!! Already got tickets to fly in December (in Europe).

    It definately scares me. I fly several times a year but have postponed any planned trips. We even changed our honeymoon destination so we can drive (5 months away)...

    I hope it wasn't terrorism... it could've been an accident

    I agree, id definatly hate to be anyway involved with any airline at the moment, i think coupled with 9/11 and today (even if its not terrorism) the airlines are going to have a very very hard time getting people on planes.

    I flew just a couple of weeks ago (across the country). To be honest it wasn't a big deal, and I would still fly.

    It's scary that this would happen, an I wish CNN would come back up (I can't get BBC now either).

    I remember plane accidents happening near Paris and Amsterdam hitting residential areas, but this one looks too much as another terrorist attack

    This is NOT going to be good for this already shaky economy... tourism and travel are down already. The airlines are all but out of business because of 9/11... even if this isn't terrorism it's going to hit them while they are down.

    Eyewitness report (via FOX I think) claimed the plane 'folded' before it hit.

    Also reports that there was a fighter in the air 'but it didn't get there in time' all sounds bad

    sowen, im watching cnn theres be no mention of plane folding, an engine did come off the plane and landed about 4 blocks (.5 mile) away from the main crash site...

    the fighter jet was one that has been routinely patroling NY since 9/11
