Aero-News Quote of the Day
"Let me make this as clear as I can: our air traffic
controller at Teterboro did his job. We believe he is not
responsible for contributing to this tragic accident and there is
nothing he could have done to prevent it from happening. We respect
the NTSB and we value our participation in NTSB investigations. But
in this case, the NTSB has completely ignored our input, painted an
unrealistic view of the job description of a Teterboro controller
and fueled a public feeding frenzy that unfairly blames this
particular Teterboro controller for not acting to stop the sequence
of events that led to the crash."
