Investigators near Teterboro look into cause

Learjet crashes on approach to New Jersey airport killing two pilotsMore

Surveillance video from a nearby business shows the moment of impact and then a huge fireball. There were no passenger in the flight and no casualty on the ground has yet been reported following the crash.

Video from the crash showed smoke billowing in the air. Here are photos showing the scene of the crash: "It hit three buildings".

Emergency responders spent more than an hour extingushing the fire, which police said torched cars in the parking lot. Some vehicles were also damaged on the ground at the crash site.

The FAA said the plane missed the runway by 1/4 of a mile, and landed in a residential area near the airport.

The Learjet 35A, a twin-engine jet often used for business or personal travel, crashed at 3:30 p.m. about one-quarter mile (0.4 kilometer) from the busy hub for corporate aviation near NY, according to an emailed statement from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration.

The exact cause of the crash will not be confirmed until after the police investigation, they said.

Residents of a community of trailer homes that sits across a street from the end of one of Teterboros runways are accustomed to the sound of planes taking off and landing.

Another witness said people rushed to the wreckage to see if they could help, but "unfortunately it was all engulfed in flames and we could do nothing but stand by and watch - really horrific".

The Learjet's tail number was N452DA and was registered to A&C Big Sky Aviation in Billings, Montana. The owners of the residence are Daniel and Julane Wells.

- A jet crashed into a building in Bergen County, New Jersey, Monday afternoon, an official said. From there the plane, with only crew aboard, made its final run to Teterboro around 3 p.m. It is commonly used to land private jets belonging to celebrities and local businesses. The owners rented the plane out for charters.
