The article reports on the consequences of the Cory Lidle Crash on October 11, 2006. The pilot's inadequate planing, judgment and airmanship during a turn maneuver was the probable cause, in which Lidle's Cirrus SR20 (N929CD) crashed into a New York high-rise building. As a result, the safety board is recommending that operations involving fixed-wing, non-amphibious aircraft in the East River Class B Exclusion area be prohibited unless authorized by air traffic control.
