Just saw this on NBC Philly. Apparently some tires and/or a landing gear fell off a plane near the Schuylkill Expressway in Philly. Breaking news so they're still trying to get the story figured out. I've heard plane tires, landing gear, and truck tires all blamed. Anyone have any more info?
Also, can't figure out what flight this would be. I'd imagine it'd be pretty tough to land without a landing gear or missing a few tires.


EDIT: Nevermind, it was a truck tire. FAA and PHL airport confirm they have no report of a plane losing a tire.
