Cirrus SR20 Crash in Manhattan Commentary

Phil Greenspun, an avid pilot, and fellow Cirrus SR20 owner, provides some commentary on what he preliminarily feels happened to the plane Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle crashed into a Manhattan condo high-rise last week.  He feels that a turn at a higher rate of speed caused an aerodynamic stall, sending the plane into the building.  He also comments about airspace regulations and posts a map of FAA airspace restrictions.
