It is a very nice day here in the NY Metro area. I live near Teterboro Airport, and doubt it was due to wind. I hope nobody killed or seriously injured. Somebody goofed though and probably bring out more of the NIMBY's out of their homes in the area to bash the airport.
By the way, after the crash Feb. 1st, there are now plans to strengthen the fencing and to put in some kind of crash barrier at the north end of the main runway to prevent the kind of accident that happened then.
