It was an AA A300 from JFK to Sto Domingo. Not too happy right now with this news. I offer my prayers to the families of all onboard as well as of those living at that area.

Marc (CC) and other members from the area, I hope and pray you guys are all okay.

Guys,

Still WAY TOO EARLY to even consider speculating what caused this plane to crash. More news as this story develops.

An American Airlines jetliner en route from New York to Santo Domingo crashed moments after takeoff Monday morning into a Rockaways neighborhood five miles from Kennedy Airport, authorities said.

The plane, an Airbus A300, had a capacity of 275 people. There was no definitive report of the number of casualties, either on the plane or on the ground, where several buildings were reported to be ablaze.

American Flight 587, a wide-bodied, twin-engine plane, crashed two minutes after it took off at 9:15 a.m. Unconfirmed reports said the plane carried 246 passengers and nine crew members.

Thick, black smoke could be seen miles away from the crash in the Rockaways. City officials said 200 firefighters and 44 fire trucks have responded to the crash. They are coping with two crash sites, one where one of the engines fell and another where the plane fell.

Bill Schumann of the Federal Aviation Administration said there was no immediate indication of what caused the crash.

There was no immediate indication that terrorism was to blame, but the Office of Emergency Management said all bridges and tunnels in the city were closed except to emergency vehicles. However, the Brooklyn Bridge has been reopened to commuters.

All metro area airports were closed following the crash near Beach 129th Street and Newport Avenue. In addition the United Nations, which is playing host to world leaders from 189 member states in town for the General Assembly, was also shut down.

In addition, F-16s at military bases have been put on alert.

Mayor Rudolph Giuliani canceled his morning events and headed to the scene. He said about 12 buildings were on fire in the area, mostly homes.

"I heard a rumble and my house shook, so I thought it was a fighter jet," said Susan Locke, who lives in the neighborhood. "I went to the window and I saw a plane coming down. It just came straight down."

John Maroney, 47, who lives on 129th Street near the site of the crash, said an engine from the plane dropped on a gas station near his house. “The whole house jumped,” he said.

“We were all out there with fire extinguishers and hoses but we couldn’t do much,” he said.

The crash site is a neighborhood of multi-family homes, three or four stories high, said Sanford Bernstein, general manager of a weekly Rockaways paper, The Wave.

Only a block or two from Jamaica Bay, the neighborhood includes a small shopping strip. A Roman Catholic church and elementary school are also nearby, he said.

Schools were closed Monday for the Veterans Day holiday.

It seems like the horror will not end this autumn.

My thoughts and prayers to everyone in Queens and the AA community, and comfort to the families of those on the plane.

Please let's hope this is not more terror!

This is unbelievable...

How much more bad news (regardless of the cause of this) can the industry take?

Very sad day : (

Initially they said it was a 767 landing then an A300 taking off.
I immediately thought that it very well could be an SJU bound plane.
It turned out to be bound for Santo Domigo, terrible news regardless of destination.
It is sad when the first reaction that comes to mind is that you HOPE it was a mechanical malfunction. Sign of the times I guess.
My thoughts and prayers go to the families of the passengers and crew of Flight 587.
They are talking now of two crash sites with the engine in one and the rest of the plane in another...
Hopefully we will get more details soon... this one "hit" very close to home...

The A300 had lost "parts" found by USCG and NYPD Marine in the Bay at the end of 22R during take off, and had lost her left engine which landed three blocks away from Ground Zero (point of impact) that was damaged but "intact". When the engine separated, she veered to the right and nosed into a dive until impact.

All early indications are that there are No Survivors and the Black Box has been recovered from the wreckage. All Residents of the Queens neighborhood have not been accounted for as yet. N.Y. Metro Airports resumed Ops. @ approx. 1400hrs. with JFK "inbound only", LGA and EWR "normal".

FAA has issued statement all indications appear that a Mechanical Failure is cause to incident

AA is one of my favourite models to collect because of its polish fuselage. It's time to release an A300 model for the airline. It's got to be GJ though.

Tail recovered, Terrorist attack unlikely.

I heard on Fox News this evening that there were actually 260 people aboard the plane. 9 crew, 246 passengers and 5 infants (who were seated in the lap of one of their parents.)

Sad news...
