local news... this just in.

about an hour or so ago, another plane has crashed in the NYC area. A small Cessna has crshed at the local airport (Teterboro), near our home.

big adrenaline rush driving by it this afternoon, wondering why there are so many cars on the runway and then seeing the burned airport sign. The entire plane was burned up. Wind is bad here- it was a little difficult landing when I came home yesterday, so I suspect it was just bad piloting/weather.

The local news picked it up:,2049,12-12-35533-38,00.html,2049,12-12-35556-13,00.html

Update: this morning, the scorched sign is replaced and the only trace that it happened is a black patch of turf. Strange.
