The aircraft, which was travelling from Philadelphia, crashed in the town of Carlstadt, New Jersey.

Social media users posted photos of black smoke billowing from buildings said to be in an industrial area close to the airport shortly after the crash.

There were no passengers on board the plane, NBC New York reported.
