    First, Accolades to out to Mr. Beardsley and staff, the control tower, safety and emergency crews. Fortunately, the flight operations through Avoca was slow at that moment as witnessed by the board on screen and .staff and equipment were available.

    Second, there had to be a reason why this plane went through Avoca which doesn’t appear to be on the route of Morristown to Philadelphia. But it might be a drill. In any event, it appears to have been handled properly. I doubt there was any need to read suspicions into this until we have additional information.

    Morristown to Philadelphia is 1.5hr drive. It probably only saves a few mins to fly that in a small plane when you figure in ground transportation from airport to destination. Risk worth it?
