MILAN, Italy -- A small plane crashed into a 30-story high-rise
office building here April 18, setting upper floors on fire and
killing at least one person.
Despite initial fears the incident was a terrorist attack, the
Italian government said it was probably an accident.
According to one media report, the pilot radioed air controllers
about mechanical problems with what was described as a "tourist
plane" and was attempting to land at a nearby airport.
Milan's Pirelli building, at 415 feet, is one of the world's
tallest concrete buildings.
