Fairfield Police Department - Essex County, New Jersey - 

Fairfield, New Jersey - On September 9, 2022, at approximately at 11:32 AM, the Fairfield Police Department was notified of an airplane crash at the Essex County Airport located at 125 Passaic Avenue. Police, fire, and EMS was immediately dispatched to the scene. First arriving officers found a Piper PA-39-160 Twin Comanche plane on the grass just off of Runway 04.

The plane was occupied by the pilot, an 84-year-old male from Kew Gardens, New York, and a passenger, an 83-year-old female from Dix Hills, New York. Neither claimed to be injured as a result of the crash. Preliminary investigation revealed that the plane had initially attempted to take off, but this take off was aborted when it was found that the passenger’s door was not properly closed. After this was corrected, the plane taxied and then attempted to take off again, but the pilot apparently aborted this take off which resulted in the plane leaving the runway. It is still unclear as to why the pilot aborted this take off. He was transported to a local hospital for evaluation.

The Federal Aviation Administration was contact and responding to assume the investigation.
