There are reports that a corporate jet has crashed in the median of 287 between exits 33 and 35, just south of Morristown.



Info is very preliminary.

Further news:


N731CA, then, if it's out of TEB?

The plane that went down was a Socata TBM-700 enroute from Teterboro to PDK. Here's the Flightaware information and route map of this flight. Very sad. I used to drive on that stretch of highway all the time when I was little.

Now saying it's a TBM-700, a single-engine turboprop like this one:

I could have sworn I saw this particular airplane at CDW a couple of times, but Flightaware doesn't mention it being there, so maybe I'm thinking of another plane.

Reports are that nobody on the ground was hurt, and that everyone on the plane was killed. RIP.

I just heard about this one as well. At least three people on board, possibly two more. From the eyewitness accounts, it sounds absolutely horrific. Fortunately, when the plane impacted the busy US Highway 287, nobody on the ground was hurt! This one really hits home, as I live just miles from the crash site, which is in Morristown, NJ.


Access to the area is very limited because of emergency activity, so I would not recommend photography. Further, there is very little to see, as there is little left of the plane. Sounds like there was some kind of in-flight structural failure, according to several eyewitness accounts; what could have caused that will have to await NTSB invistigation.

Very, very sad news. I am just glad that by some miracle, nobody on the ground was killed or hurt.
