Terrorism?

More coming.

WNBC reports that two bodies have been recovered. Active speculation that this could be a copycat 9/11 attack.

Some witnesses say the aircraft was a small plane, some say it was a helicopter.

NORAD says fighters have been launched over several U.S. cities. FAA says aircraft was "fixed-wing." Officials say aircraft took a hard 90 degree turn before hitting the building. The aircraft had no communications with Air Traffic contolllers.

Fire Department officials say penetration into the building by the aircraft was not significant. Fire was fought in a "routine" manner.

Update FOX News reports that Yankees' pitcher Cory Lidle piloted the plane and is dead. Sad news, our condolences go out to his family and friends.

The building is said to be located at 524 East 72nd Street in New York.
