Reiter, reports a fatal plane crash in Walls Township that claimed the lives of four passengers and the pilot leaving no survivors at 3:45 p.m. Monday, February 15, 2010, as reported by the New York Times. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) began an investigation to determine what caused the tragic plane crash. Witnesses reported the plane going down, which ended in a fiery explosion. Rescue officials rushed to the scene of the aviation accident where a 200-foot trail of scattered debris led to the obliterated blue and white Cessna 337 Skymaster.
Eyewitnesses were sledding in the area when they saw the aircraft go down and reported it to the authorities. Investigators reported that the plane had taken off from the Allaire Airport, 60 miles south of New York City, at 3:30 p.m. Monday afternoon when it began to circle back around and descend toward the runway without its landing gear extended. The plane soon disappeared behind a hill and reportedly rolled over and exploded. The victims of the plane crash were found dead at and around the scene. The victims included two children related to the Polish passenger 38-year-old Andrzej Zajaczkowski of Warsaw -his 14-year-old son, Patryk, and his 6-year-old nephew, Filip Zajaczkowski; the plane owner, 45-year-old Jacek Mazurek, was also was killed along with the pilot, 46-year-old Wojciech G. Nykaza, of Lodi. Two of the bodies were found in the fuselage and another was recovered beneath the wreckage of the destroyed aircraft.
