NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The National Transportation Safety Board is trying to figure out what caused a Delta jet to skid off the runaway and crash through a fence at LaGuardia Airport.
The plane was removed and taken to a hanger Friday after crews spent much of the night using massive cranes to lift the 140,000-pound MD-88 aircraft, the Port Authority said.
As part of its investigation, the NTSB will be scrutinizing the plane’s data and voice recorders to figure out why the pilot lost control.
The affected runway was reopened around 10:30 a.m. Friday, the Port Authority said. The airport’s other runway reopened Thursday about three hours after the incident, which was still impacting travelers on Friday.
