As Al Rodgers has alluded to in the most recent diary, Lidle's plane crashed into an apartment building in New York. In fact it is my cousin's apartment building, on 72nd and York (thankfully he wasn't home).
There were two men on the plane. There is no word yet as to whether one of them was Lidle.
UPDATE: According to CNN the pilot was Lidle. If that is true, Corey Lidle, RIP.
