Federal Aviation Administration flight records for the Learjet that crashed and burned last night in South Carolina, obtained exclusively by E! News, reveal that the two-year-old jet carrying Travis Barker, DJ AM and four others had flown without incident less than hour before the crash.

We have learned that the 11-seat jet, which was registered with the FAA out of Irvine, Cali., had recently been housed in a hangar in Teterboro, N.J., that is used mostly by corporate clients.

According to flight records, the jet made a routine one-hour, 26-minute flight from Teterboro to Columbia (S.C.) Metropolitan Airport Friday night, arriving at 11:08 p.m.

Less than an hour later, shortly before midnight, the plane attempted takeoff en route to Van Nuys and crashed before taking flight.

"Something must have gone wrong on the ground," says an FAA source. "It appears the plane had no mechanical issues."

The jet had made several flights recently in California, Arizona, New Jersey and Kansas.
