Strong winds before fatal plane crash

Strong winds before fatal plane crash

Teterboro, which is owned by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, is the oldest operating airport in the New York City area. Airport officials said Teterboro Airport has been closed and flight operations ceased until further notice.

"Right now they're trying to put the fires out on the building just next to us. we just keep having little explosions, it's a insane situation here", Orlando said shortly after the crash. Two of the three buildings involved in the crash sustained fire damage.

A Lear jet attempting to land at a northern New Jersey airport flipped and crashed in a nearby industrial area Monday afternoon, killing two crew members and setting fire to buildings and vehicles, said authorities and officials with the aircraft's charter service.

Flight data compiled by Flightaware, a website that tracks plane movements, said the Learjet 35 had started the day at Teterboro and flown to MA before flying to Philadelphia.

A WNBC reporter on the scene said the jet crashed into a parking lot stranding workers who were told to leave the immediate are, but were not allowed to move their cars.

Among the many factors investigators from the FAA and NTSB will probe Tuesday is the plane's maintenance records, which is routine in all plane crashes.

This is part of the existing Easyjet Airbus framework agreement signed in 2013. Total loss before tax after non-headline items was £236 million.

The National Weather Service warned of strong winds with gusts up to 45 miles per hour (72 kph) just before the plane went down.

It happened in an industrial area on Kero Road in Carlstadt, near Teterboro Airport - a small airport located close to New York City. The flight departed from Philadelphia International Airport and was headed to Teterboro.

The airport was the scene of a midair crash that killed nine people in 2009, when a single-engine plane and a sightseeing helicopter collided over the Hudson River.

The crash sent thick, black smoke spewing into the air.

No one else was aboard the plane, Carlstadt Police said.

According to Flightaware.com, the Lear Jet 35, registered N452DA, was scheduled to depart from Philadelphia at 2:30 p.m., but actually left at 3:04 p.m.
