FAA issues warning after NJ plane crash
WALL TOWNSHIP -- Regulators have issued a warning in the wake of a small plane crash that killed five people in New Jersey.
The Federal Aviation Administration recommends that owners and pilots of any Cessna Skymaster 336 and 337 series aircraft with a wingtip fuel tank modification make inspections.
Officials say a six-foot portion of the right wing, which had an extension, broke off in the Feb. 15 crash at Monmouth Executive Airport in Wall Township.
A National Transportation Safety Board preliminary report found that after the section of the outer right wing separated, the plane rolled and hit the ground about five minutes after takeoff.
Three of the five people killed were members of a family visiting from Poland.
