A helicopter crashed on top of a NYC high rise.
They don’t crash into the roof of a skyscraper very often. People tend to be a little more sensitive towards aircraft crashing into buildings here for some reason.Odd because helicopters and light aircraft crash from time and time and the coverage of this one is peculiar. I guess if it didn’t happen in NYC, it didn’t happen.
They should be used to it by now. There have been quite a few over the years.They don’t crash into the roof of a skyscraper very often. People tend to be a little more sensitive towards aircraft crashing into buildings here for some reason.

Top of my head for now.
That was the JFK Pan Am shuttle iirc. Killed 5 people. No more rooftop helipads after that.New York Air has a heli where the side gear/skid failed and their operating practice was to keep rotors running during deplaning/boarding for quicker operation. The heli fell on its side and it was “off with his head” for several people. One rotor flew off and into a building on the other side. One rotor came down in the side walk and killed a woman.
And that was the end of heli transports over Manhattan....
Found a tribute and photo on the East Clinton Volunteer Fire Department's Facebook page. Hundreds have responded so far. Apparently he was a good, decent man, very loved and well respected. 3rd generation Firefighter. Sad.Remember the man for a moment, or think of him, and then the incidents past?
Or maybe, should you pass suddenly, we could recall a Mohawk flight long-ago in the hills of Pennsylvania? Or something.
