Aviation experts said inexperience, the tight airspace over the city, mechanical failure, hazy weather or a gust of wind through New York's concrete canyons could explain why a small plane failed to execute a U-turn and slammed into the side of a high-rise. According to radar data, the single-engine plane appeared to be making a difficult but commonly performed left turn over a 700-meter-wide section of the East River between Manhattan and Queens when it crashed Wednesday. The crash killed the two people on board - New York Yankee baseball player Cory Lidle and his flight instructor, Tyler Stanger. Investigators said they have not determined who was at the controls.
