The National Transportation Safety Board says its on-scene phase of the investigation has concluded into the plane crash that took two lives near Westchester County Airport Thursday.
The single-engine plane flew out of John F. Kennedy International Airport, and according to the pilot, had to make an emergency landing because of an engine oil issue.
Ultimately, the plane went down in a wooded area in Armonk.
News 12 is told the engine of the single-engine plane has been taken to the plane's manufacturers for a more detailed examination.
