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.

Online retailing giant Amazon is planning to add 100,000 full-time jobs in the U.S. over the next year and a half, including 2,500 in New Jersey, the company said in a statement Thursday.

The jobs include entry-level work and skilled positions like engineers and software developers. The full-time positions will also come with benefits.

The company already employs 11,000 people at seven sites in the state. The new hires will work at additional “fulfillment centers,” the company said.

The remainder of the new hires will staff facilities in Washington, Texas, California, Kentucky, Illinois and Florida.

The news comes as Amazon also announced it would be opening a bookstore at the Garden State Plaza in Paramus, one of five stores the company plans to open in New York, Massachusetts and Illinois.

In July, the company announced plans to lease a 617,000-square-foot warehouse in Teterboro as part of its plan to grow its footprint in the state. In 2015, the company cut the ribbon on a massive shipping facility in Robbinsville.
