TETERBORO, N.J. – A Lear jet headed to Teterboro diverted safely late Thursday morning to Stewart Airport in Orange County, NY, after a problem with the nose landing gear, authorities said.

The troubled jet landed before noon at the public/military airport in the southern Hudson Valley town of New Windsor, nearly 57 miles north of Teterboro, the Port Authority's Joseph Pentangelo told Daily Voice.

Hasbrouck Heights firefighters and Port Authority responders were at Teterboro Airport as the jet, with five people aboard, began circling to burn off fuel around 10:30 a.m., Pentangelo said.

The decision was ultimately made to head to an airport in a less-congested area, he said.
