2 dead after Learjet crashes near Teterboro Airport in New Jersey

A pilot and co-pilot died in a Learjet crash Monday afternoon near Teterboro Airport in New Jersey, Carlstadt Police said. There were no passenger in the flight and no casualty on the ground has yet been reported following the crash. The plane struck at least three buildings in a heavily populated area, including a Department of Public Works facility.

"You could see parts of the engine", he said.

No one else was aboard the plane, Carlstadt Police said. The National Transportation Safety Board has been investigating the crash.

Steve Case, the co-founder of AOL, posted an Instagram photo of the smoke rising in the distance.

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.

"Tower, a Learjet has just crashed", an air traffic controller says over the radio in a calm, composed voice. Data shows it had left Teterboro early that morning, flown to Hanscom Field outside Boston, then to Philadelphia, where it remained for four hours before the fatal leg back to Teterboro.
