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.

Btw how does an engine problem = unsafe airport?

The NIMBY's will be out in full scream now!!

If you think that airport isn't safe what about APA here in Denver...... We lead the nation in GA crashes......

First of all, you're right LTBEWR. But why is this true?
It's true because all of aviation has been to nice to put the NIMBYs back down. Was anyone, outside of the airplane, injured?
When there's a fatal accident on the highway, do the NIMBYs insist that the highway be closed? NO.
Over 40,000 people died in car accidents last year. Shall we ban all cars?
I say that we, and all of aviation, need to stand up to the NIMBYs. Ask them why they want to deny your civil right to travel...

ugh not again....Cessna 177(?) en route to CDW, radioed fuel problems.
|Quoting LTBEWR (Reply 22):|
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
|Quoting FlyHoss (Reply 24):|
IMHO, the NIMBYs are only happy when they've something to complain about, no matter how lame.
