Three people were killed when the plane punched through the 25th floor of a building in Milan.

The crash raised fears of a September eleventh-type terrorist attack, but officials say it was most likely a mistake.

The pilot had been flying the short trip from Switzerland to Milan. Officials say the pilot failed several times to line up with the airport runway in Milan and eventually lost contact with the control tower. He'd reported having trouble with his landing gear
