2017-05-15-Twitter-Teterboro_Crash

A small plane crashed on Monday just outside of Teterboro Airport in northern New Jersey just outside of New York City. Thick black smoke rose from the crash site, which is in an industrial area just outside of the aircraft facility.

The jet wasn’t carrying any passengers, though the two crew members on board died in the crash. The resulting explosion caused multiple cars and nearby buildings to catch fire, and NBC states that Teterboro Airport was closed shortly after the incident.

The FAA has already issued a statement on the crash:

The airport issued a ground stop in the immediate aftermath of the crash, according a Tweet by ABC’s Dan Linden.

Steve Case, the co-founder of AOL, posted an Instagram photo of the smoke rising in the distance.

Other Twitter users posted their own photos and footage of the crash:
