Boeing 767’s landing-gear door plummeted into Kent neighborhood

The hunk of metal that fell out of the sky into a Kent neighborhood Friday morning was a landing gear door from a Boeing 767, a common commercial airline model, according to Federal Aviation Administration investigators.

Neighbors who heard it crash down on Southeast 231st Way near 128the Place said it narrowly missed a parked car but didn’t hurt anyone, according to our news partner KING 5.

Leah Dermody, who lives nearby, told KING 5 some neighbors claimed they heard a plane flying low when it happened.

FAA officials are continuing their investigation into where the part came from and did not release any more information today.

According to Boeing’s website, 767 models haveĀ 3.1 million parts provided by more than 800 suppliers.
