Boeing confirms 767 part found on Ground Zero mosque site from 9/11 attack
Washington: A charred portion of plane wing found in an area near Ground Zero belonged to one of the two planes that smashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, officials have confirmed.
Boeing technicians informed the New York Police Department that the five-foot-long section of metal support for a wing flap that helps regulate speed — discovered at the rear of 51 Park Place near the ‘Ground Zero Mosque’ — was matched to one of the two 767s.
According to New York Post, NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said the part found is believed to be from one of the two aircraft destroyed on September 11, 2001, but it could not be determined which one.
The discovery of the piece last week spurred officials to search the area near the controversial mosque project for any human remains that also might have ended up near it, the report said.
The wing-flap support will be removed from the site after that process is completed on Wednesday and transported to the Police Department’s property division before its final destination is decided, it added.
