One for the flight enthusiasts..........

Wing section mystery

5:15AM Thursday December 06, 2007

A 3m piece of wing from a jet aircraft has been found on a runway at the Indonesian capital Jakarta's main airport and investigators are trying to trace the plane it originated from. No airline operator had reported the part missing since its discovery on Tuesday.




I thought it felt a bit funny on takeoff.............

The report is a little vague, it doesn't say if it's 3m long or 3m square but you would think it would have been missed by now.

It probably wasn't important. Manufacturers and designers often put things on aircraft that aren't needed. Its just a way to make money selling replacement parts.
