NTSB investigators to interview the pilot, co-pilot of Teterboro plane crash

Investigators from the NTSB are planning Friday to interview the pilot and co-pilot involved in Wednesday?s crash at Teterboro Airport. The two men still remain hospitalized.

Investigators say they know the pilot used the reverse thrusters in an attempt to stop the jet. What the investigators hope to find out is if the thrusters were engaged when the plane was still on the runway or after it had gone off the end of it.

NTSB investigators say they spoke to a worker at Atlantic Aviation, where the passengers boarded, and he did not recall seeing any ice or frost on the plane before take off. Investigators have already conducted interviews with passengers of the corporate jet.

The small corporate jet went off the runway at Teterboro Airport, skidded across Route 46 and smashed into a nearby clothing store warehouse. No one was killed in the incident, but approximately 20 people were taken to area hospitals.
