I do not have much info on it all I know is some sort of plane has crashed at 560 Huyler St. Which is at or near Teterboro, Airport. 1 DOA at least 2 others in serious condition, headed to local hospitals.
Sorry I moved from SXM, looking for a new house on Anguilla now!

SOUTH HACKENSACK, N.J. - A small plane struck a post office building near Teterboro Airport late Friday and crashed in a marshy area after the pilot radioed that he was having engine trouble.
Arlene Murray, a spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration, said the single-engine plane was diverted to Teterboro after the pilot reported an engine problem. She said the plane came to rest in a marshy area after striking the building.

I just passed by the area (Rt. 46) the road north of the border of Teterboro airport. Power is out for a number of blocks around. It partially crashed into a US Post Office annex building. This building is about 1/4 mile north of the northern border of the airport. Apparently is was a Cessna 172. They believe the pilot abord was killed, but not sure if there was a passanger or someone in or around the building was killed. The flight was originally headed for Fairfield (NJ) airport, and was attempting to land at Teterboro due to a problem. The NIMBY's will be out in full scream now!!

As we can see, once basic information comes in, the airport didn't have anything to do with it....

don't think that it is the airport we should be talking about here. I think that it is the fact that both the approach and departure procedures are complex and most pilots are not trained to that level and don't want to take in the advanced knowledge on their own accord.
Just my opinion through many years of flying in and out of TEB

An engine could fail or the same with other mechanical defects at any airport, at any time. Look at the US 737 into PIT in 94, the AA A300 at JFK in '01, the DC10 at ORD, the CRJ near JEF... are those airports unsafe?? Use some logic here, folks. Even the app/dep procedures at TEB are irrelevant to this crash.

My reference to the NIMBY's being riled up in the area of TEB is that there has been a number of accidents around the airport have occured in recent years, as well as growing noise complaints. Housing values near TEB have been going up greatly in recent years, so the new owners, although they knew they were near an airport, fear that increased numbers of incidents, crashes and more noise may badly affect their excessively priced home, especially if values level off from their current obscene highs.
By the way, I live less than 3 miles from TEB and often see approaching and departing aircraft from there often.

Good point, LTBEWR. IIRC, several years ago, a flight instructor at APA filed an attachment to the deed of a home owner, and president of the local anti-airport group, noting that her home suffered a "defect" because it was near APA. After all, Colorado is a "full-disclosure" state; you're required to list any fault or defect when you sell a home. The flight instructor used the words of the anti-airport leader against her own self (and self-interest). So, (again if IIRC) she sued him for devaluing her home.
Does anyone know how that lawsuit turned out?
Why do we coddle the NIMBYs? If they move in next to a hospital, fire station or police station, do they complain about the noise of the sirens and insist that facility be closed?
IMHO, the NIMBYs are only happy when they've something to complain about, no matter how lame.
A little bit louder now, a lil bit louder now...
