Two engines from American Airlines flight 587 should be in Tulsa in the next couple of weeks for a complete teardown. We spoke to the National Transportation Safety Board Wednesday who said the engines will come on two trucks from New York's JFK Airport where they are being stored for now.

The A-300 Airbus crashed into a neighborhood in Queens, New York November 12th. All 260 people aboard the jet and five others on the ground died. The NTSB says it appears both engines were running when the plane crashed.

Investigators hope a tear down of those engines will help them determine what brought the plane down.
