Watch That First Step

Reports from New Jersey tell of a jet that skidded off the runway at Teterboro Airport, across the Hudson River from New York City. The plane crossed six lanes of Route 46, took out two cars, and ended up in a warehouse. This is hardly surprising, since the north-south runway at Teterboro is just yards and a chain-link fence from the highway. When I used to fly out of there, there were stories of a landing airplane that left skid marks on the roof of a bus, and of a little old lady who threw up her hands and ran her car off the road in terror at the sight of a landing plane. I don't recall any warehouses in those days though.
