I heard and saw this plane fly overhead with engine sputtering at my Livingston home. I also saw the plane that crashed on I-287 a few years back flying very low a few yards north of me. I didn't understand why that second plane flew past Morristown Airport. Maintaining their flight path for a few more miles declaring an emergency turning left and attempting to land at Morristown could have ended differently.
