Federal investigators are back at a Manhattan apartment building, trying to figure out why a small plane slammed into it.
New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle and a flight instructor died in the crash, which authorities say left debris scattered everywhere. The propeller separated from the engine, which wound up in an apartment, while the bodies and other aircraft parts tumbled 30 floors to the street.
Police are keeping the site cordoned off, shooing away people trying to catch a glimpse or take a picture.
The National Transportation Safety Board says it'll review tapes and talk to other pilots who might've been flying nearby.
Those private pilots are now under a new temporary federal restriction. It requires them to be authorized by air traffic control when flying below 1,500 feet near the city. New York Gov. George Pataki calls the city's airways “some of the most difficult to navigate.”
