Pilot Unhurt in Hard Landing at Teterboro
No injuries were reported when a small plane came down at Teterboro Airport without its landing gear deployed.
Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police tell The Star-Ledger that the pilot was the only person aboard the single-engine plane when it landed around 2 p.m. Monday.
But it wasn’t immediately clear why the landing gear did not deploy or if the plane suffered much damage.
The pilot’s name was not disclosed, and authorities have not said where the plane had taken off from or where it was headed.
The Port Authority operates the airport in Bergen County, which is frequently used by business travelers headed to and from Manhattan and recreational pilots.
