Lidle Tragedy Leads to Airspace Restrictions


Of course, the biggest news lately for the aviation community was the tragic loss of New York Yankees pitcher Corey Lidle over Manhattan last week.

This tragedy is expected to have repercussions on air traffic over Manhattan, as restrictions are put in place to ban fixed-wing planes from crossing the East River.

Sen. Charles Schumer believes the skies above New York City should be watched even more closely in light of the Upper East Side plane crash and potential terrorist attacks.

Meanwhile, tributes pour in for pitcher Lidle, offering comfort to teammates and family members.
