A Learjet took off from Philadelphia and crashed on approach at Teterboro

The Learjet 35A, a twin-engine jet often used for business or personal travel, was built in 1981. It was coming in for a landing when it crashed in an industrial area of Carlstadt around 3:30 p.m. Both occupants of the plane were killed and the crash caused a fire with dark billowing smoke that could be seen for miles. Buildings in the area and parked cars caught fire but were quickly extinguished by local fire departments.
