Nobody has anything to say about this yet?
One witness said the plane never made it off the ground after "sliding and skidding" down the runway.
"Usually we see them lift off, but this one just went straight and started scratching the ground. There were sparks shooting out all over the place," said Joseph Massaro, a psychologist who lives nearby.

Maybe a gear failure on the take-off roll?
Of course, maybe it was just good old-fashioned ice contamination, and the skidding and sparks the witness refers to occured after the pilots tried to stop or after they departed the runway.
I know it takes time for a good investigation, but at the same time I hate that it takes months or longer until we know what actually happened with these things.
You can still learn even when you're weather out.
