    Arrow Looking for photos of the crash at Newark, NJ in 1999

    A Bonanza slammed into Kent St near Springfield Ave on November 26, 1999. Back then I wasn't into aviation, so my recent discovery of this surprised me quite a bit, as you never hear about plane crashes in Newark. In fact, that's the only post-WWII crash in Newark that I know of. Here's the article:
    http://www.nytimes.com/1999/11/27/ny...ted=all&src=pm
    And the crash brief:
    http://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/wiki.php?id=36971
    http://www.ntsb.gov/aviationquery/br...12X20151&key=1

    It was quite the mess. 3 fatalities on the plane, 1 on the ground, 25 injuries (including severe burns), 60 evacuees, 8 cars destroyed, and 18 structures were damaged. Crazy. I'd like to view photos of the crash site, specifically the destroyed cars and residences. Can't find any, though. Here are the NTSB publications on the event:
    Report 1: http://dms.ntsb.gov/aviation/Acciden...2012120000.pdf
    Report 2: http://dms.ntsb.gov/aviation/Acciden...2012120000.pdf

    Can anyone help me get some photos?

    There was also a Fed-Ex MD-11 that crashed on landing in Newark, in 1997:

    Oh, yeah, I knew about that, but I meant actual crashes in the city of Newark, not the airport.

    I'm sure there are more incidents, I just find it funny that I was reading about this crash last night in one of my "Aviation Disasters" books.
    (The storms knocked out cable and internet, and I thought I'd catch up on some reading).
