Investigator Testifies About 2005 NJ Crash
NTSB investigator testifies at trial of 2 charter jet execs about 2005 NJ crash

Jurors at the trial of two former executives of a charter
jet service whose clients included celebrities such as
Jay-Z, Diddy and Bon Jovi, are hearing details about
the 2005 crash of one of the company’s planes at New
Jersey’s Teterboro Airport.

William English, the lead investigator in the National
Transportation Safety Board’s accident probe, took the
stand Monday afternoon as a prosecution witness.

Two co-founders of Florida-based Platinum Jet
Management are charged with running illegal and
unsafe charters.

One of the now-defunct company’s jets crashed on
takeoff at Teterboro Airport in February 2005 and
slammed into a warehouse, injuring 20 people.

Federal prosecutors say the investigation into the
crash uncovered a conspiracy by Platinum to skirt
safety regulations
