The plane is registered to a San Francisco-based real estate consulting company, Category III, according to an FAA database. The pilot of the Cessna 414 and all four passengers were killed but nobody on the ground was hurt, authorities said.

The plane, an Airbus A321, was being held at Terminal B while the medical examiner's office was called to the scene, according to WABC. "Please check with @AmericanAir before your departure", the post said. "We will release determination when investigation is complete".

American Airlines referred all questions to law enforcement, telling NBC New York, "We have no major impact to our operation this morning while we are working with law enforcement on an investigation".

Just before 9 a.m., the airport tweeted about possible delays over the incident.

"We are looking into that", said Silvia Estevez, a spokesperson for Queens, New York, District Attorney Richard A. Brown.
