The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating two recent runway incursions at Teterboro (N.J.) Airport (TEB). The probe will focus on a June 25 incident involving a Learjet 45 and a July 9 ground incursion involving a NetJets Dassault Falcon 2000 and a Cessna 172. On June 25 the Learjet, operating as Windrider Flight 988, was cleared to land on Runway 19, which had been closed a half hour earlier and was properly marked with a lighted X at the departure end. Two weeks later, a Cessna 172 crossed the hold-short line of Runway 24 after the NetJets Falcon was cleared for takeoff.
