Landing gear door falls on US neighbourhood

A piece of metal that fell to the ground in a Kent, Washington, neighbourhood was part of a Boeing 767`s landing gear door.



Kent (US): The Federal Aviation Administration confirms that a piece of metal that fell to the ground in a Kent, Washington, neighbourhood was part of a Boeing 767`s landing gear door.

Witnesses say the refrigerator-size panel hit the ground and skipped about 10 metres before stopping in a street yesterday morning. No one in the neighbourhood about 15 miles south of Seattle was hurt.

Neighbours say a cargo jet flew low over the area at about the same time the part came down.

Photos on news station KOMO`s website show part of an identification plate on the object that has the word "aircraft" along with a serial number.

FAA officials aren`t saying if they`ve located the plane that the part came from.
