Whatever it was hopefully wasn't too serious. The airport was reopened around 1205 EDT.

Given the lack of media coverage over the last couple of hours, I'd guess it waa a small general aviation aircraft (and not an airliner) with minor (if any) injuries...

Found a media article on it http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/030712/nysa015_4.html

Pilot was the only one on board, reports minor to moderate injuries. The plane, a Piper Apache, reported "problems" shortly after becoming airborne.
