Additional information on the aircraft, including a list of past flights
The flight first comes into the area's radar coverage from somewhere in New Jersey, and then approaches and apparently lands at Teterboro Airport (KTEB) at 1514Z (11:14 AM Eastern time), according to raw data records. The aircraft was only on the ground briefly, because raw data records indicate radar position reports starting up again at 1550Z (11:50 AM Eastern time), as the aircraft turned towards the Hudson River. The last position reports for the aircraft indicate an altitude of 1100 feet.
We do not have any flight data on the helicopter.
