Marcus Lemonis shot this video from inside the cockpit of his plane on the runway of Tetersboro Airport.

"I got chills up and down my spine", Paul Kisle, who witnessed the crash from the parking lot of a Quick Chek on Washington Avenue in Carlstadt, told New Jersey 101.5.

"I saw the plane come over, in front of us, completely on its side, flying erratically", he said.

Monday's crash of a Learjet approaching Teterboro Airport killed two crew members and damaged buildings in an industrial area.

The last employee left the building about 15 minutes before the crash and locked the gate, Lahullier said.
