Seeing that fire made me worry that the modern steel building was going to collapse into its own footprint in 6 seconds like building 7 did back then... but then I remembered that we have the laws of physics and felt better. Thank god the laws of physics have evolved since 2001 to 2019....

It wasn’t a terrorist attack. It was to foggy for the pilot to see through.

He did a great job. He landed on the building instead of on the street or into one. He’s a great pilot and should be remembered as one. That takes skill. Respect!

If it was a Muslim pilot, they would say it was terrorism regardless of the facts. Sadly, Muslims are guilty until proven innocent. If it is a white, Christian or Jewish person, it is always an accident or a mental health breakdown.

I don’t see why everyone is congratulating the pilot on killing himself but not others. The helicopter should have never been flying in such bad weather in a populated area. Early reports say that the pilot did not have his instrument rating which would’ve made it illegal to take off in the conditions he did in the first place. There are videos online of the helicopter diving out of a cloud, pulling up a few hundred feet above the Hudson then climbing back into the clouds. This, and the lack of a mayday indicate to me that this was a VFR rated pilot flying illegally in IFR conditions and that he probably didn’t call anyone because he didn’t want to have to follow up with a report to the NTSB and have them find out he was flying illegally. If there was a mechanical problem he could have easily put it down in the river. Landing a helicopter in water is a lot safer then a airplane. This pilot was stupid and reckless, he’s lucky he didn’t injure anyone else but himself. - just my two cents from a helicopter pilot 🤷‍♂️

There needs to be an emergency plan for potential (God forbid) terrorist attacks in NYC. I panicked. I was fearing the worst because of what happened on 9/11. I know those that were much closer had those flashbacks. Businesses need emergency plans. I always plan just in case.
