Small Airplane Crashes or Threat

Small Airplane Crash or Threat --- ===

1 suspect killed terrorism and suicide suspected, ruled out August 12, 2016  Canadian not-Terrorist Mohammad Hassan Chaudhary Steals and Crashes Plane Into Mall Canadian 20-year-old Markham man Mohammad Hassan Chaudhary with mental health issues “acting alone,” managed to sneak into  Toronto Markham Airport, steal a Piper PA-38-112 Tomahawk small plane undetected, fly it and crashed it just before 3 a.m. in what appeared to be an "emergency landing" near the Landsdowne Place mall apparently halfway on a journey to the national capital in Ottawa. The plane's owner had the only key. Police believe that someone with a bit of computer flight simulator experience could probably fly a plane but landing would be a problem. Chaudhary’s father Afzal Chaudhary said that his son lived with schizophrenia and other mental health issues. The son was charged in connection with an alleged armed robbery at a gas station with a pellet gun where he fled with money in September 2015. The father answered questions from police officials who initiated a terrorist investigation but could not connect him to any

terrorist organization or motive, and also excluded suicide. He told media that his son didn’t have a “single minute” of flight training, and blamed the police, as he “expressed outrage over the fact that his son was able to break into the airport, steal a small aircraft, and crash land on the streets of Peterborough without any intervention from police or airport security officials.”.

Terrorist: 18 February 2010 Pilot General aviation 2010 Austin suicide attack  Andrew Joseph Stack III deliberately crashed his single-engine Piper Dakota light aircraftinto Building I of the Echelon office complex in Austin, Texas, United States.  February 18, 2010, when Andrew Joseph Stack III deliberately crashed his single-engine Piper Dakota light aircraft into Building I of the Echelon office complex in Austin, Texas, United States,[5] killing himself and Internal Revenue Service manager Vernon Hunter.[6] Thirteen others were injured, two seriously. The four-story[7][8] office building housed an IRS field office occupying the top three floors, along with a couple of private businesses on the first floor. Prior to the crash, Stack had posted a suicide note referring to "greed", "insanity", and the IRS, dated February 18, 2010, to his business website. Stack is also suspected of having set fire that morning to his two-story North Austin house, which was mostly destroyed.

April 20, 2009 Adam Leon stolen Canadian plane escorted by F-16s apparent suicide attempt and previous terrorist dry runs  by creeping the man who stole a single-prop Cessna from a Canadian flight school on Monday, was distressed and the entire incident was simply a failed suicide attempt. However, many of the facts point to something much more sinister.  Canadian man named Adam Leon, his real name is Yavuz Berke. He is in fact, a Muslim immigrant from Turkey. Berke stole Cessna 172 from Confederation College in Thunder Bay, Ontario, around 2:55 p.m. EST. At 4:23 p.m. he entered U.S. airspace as he flew over Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, at which time two F-16s from the Wisconsin Air National Guard intercepted began following the plane. For the next five hours, Berke flew over Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, and eventually landing in Missouri. Apparently, someone believed the flight to be a terrorist attack. Authorities concluded that Berke had been depressed and left his girlfriend a note, and his car was left at the airport with the keys inside. Berke has been portrayed by federal authorities as nothing more than a despondent individual who had hoped to be shot down in a suicide.  Berke is obviously an experienced pilot and could have easily been testing-out the policies of a new president on a well-planned dry-run for future terrorist attacks with girlfriend trouble as a common cover story for terrorism.Turk jailed for flying stolen Canadian plane into U.S. airspace  A Canadian student pilot who stole a plane from a flight school in Thunder Bay, Ont., and flew it over four American states before landing on a road in Missouri was sentenced Tuesday to two years in a U.S. federal prison. Adam Dylan Leon, 31, had pleaded guilty in August to all three charges against him: interstate transportation of a stolen aircraft, importation of a stolen aircraft and illegal entry.

2006 New York City small plane crashes into building cause: badly executed turn  October 11, 2006, when a Cirrus SR20 general aviation, fixed-wing, single-engine light aircraft crashed into the Belaire Apartments in New York City at about 2:42 p.m. local time (18:42 UTC). The aircraft struck the north side of the building, located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, causing a fire in several apartments,[2][3] which was extinguished within two hours.[4]  Both people aboard the aircraft were killed in the accident: New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle[3] and his certified flight instructor Tyler Stanger.[5][6] Twenty-one people were injured, including eleven firefighters. An apartment resident, Ilana Benhuri, was hospitalized for a month with severe burns incurred when the post-impact fire engulfed her apartment.[7]  According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Cirrus SR20 aircraft, tail number N929CD, was owned by Lidle.[8] On May 1, 2007, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) stated that the probable cause of the crash was pilot error. Pilot Error Caused Lidle Crash, NTSB Report Finds Popular Mechanics   Lidle, a 34-year-old pitcher for the New York Yankees and recently certified private pilot, was flying with Tyler Stanger, his 26-year-old flight instructor. ...The apartment building stands on the east side of the island, adjacent to the abrupt dead-end of an airspace corridor over the East River.  "The pilots' inadequate planning, judgment, and airmanship in the performance of a 180-degree turn maneuver inside of a limited turning space" led to the crash, according to the NTSB. No system, structural or engine malfunctions were found by investigators....Private planes were allowed to fly the corridor provided they kept their altitude under 1100 ft., but about halfway up Manhattan Island, the corridor runs into LaGuardia Airport's Class B airspace. Lidle and Stanger would have had to get prior permission from the airport's control tower to fly through. So they tried to turn around... began their U-turn "in the middle of the East Channel … as opposed to beginning the turn from the eastern shoreline." Additionally, winds from the East forced the aircraft toward Manhattan and shortened the lateral turning area even more. Investigators determined the pilots misjudged the necessary bank angle.

The crash killed the pilot and two others in the building. Sixty more people sustained injuries in the building and on the ground.  The crash raised fears of a terrorist attack because of the similarities with the September 11th attacks, which had occurred only a few months earlier. The cause of the crash was never exactly determined, but the most plausible reason is an accident or a suicide. The pilot was in fact victim of a scam that brought him close to bankruptcy, so the possibility of a spectacular deliberate crash suicide is plausible. September 11 fears as plane crashes into Pirelli tower - Telegraph The Daily Telegraph Apr 19, 2002 fears were compounded given Milan's reputation as a centre of Islamic militancy ...
