PHOTOS: A small plane has crashed at the Lakewood Airport this afternoon. Officials tell TLS there were four people on board when the plane ran the runway as it attempted to take off and crashed into the trees.
The pilot and passengers all emerged safely.
Lakewood Police and Lakewood Fire Department are on scene.
Federal officials from the FAA are on scene conducting an investigation. TLS
Glad to see everyone was OK, I saw the Lakewood ambulance and was not sure why they were pulling into the airport, I did not see anything as I drove behind them. These responders (Police. Fire. EMS) are great at what they do. Going from all these bad accidents, people being hit to this. I support you in doing this job that many can not even imagine.
not safe to drive in Lakewood, Now its unsafe to fly
Dear Sonia Sarita. Arjun and Pilot

Your cousin Erica and Aunt Nanette
What went wrong?
they cant drive in lakewood let alone fly
Lemaysa it’s time to update the Lakewood airport facilities and maybe make it a big international airport with flights to eretz yisroel
@ # 6, ah, no. There’s enough traffic in Lakewood don’t need to add bigger airport, there are enough airports to get where you want to go.
Grada I disagree Lakewood is Baruch Hashem a growing gevaldiga community deserving of an international airport maybe even bigger than JFK it would probably help the Lakewood economy as well
If there was an international airport in Lakewood there would be no room for more houses!
The comments indicating that it is unsafe to fly out of Lakewood are just silly. When in aviation you hear the phrase “attempting to take off”, that is a pretty good clue that something went wrong during the takeoff but too late to stop the takeoff run. Perhaps we can all wait until the investigation is concluded before we offer any thoughts about what happened.
As for international flights to Israel….the FAA assurred Lakewood many years ago that it (the airport) would NEVER be a Part 135 Commercial airport…..aside from no land, you are in the middle of McGuire, Philly and of course the 3 major airports in NY. Not gonna happen……
