Part Fell Off From Aircraft

Fri Aug 23, 2002 6:40 pm

A Braathens 737 aircraft lost a "lid covering the hydraulics" on one of its wings this morning. The loose part was discovered by passengers just after take off and the pilot decided to continue the flight from Stavanger to Oslo but asked the Gardermoen tower for a course avoiding urban areas... The lid that was 1,5 x 0,6 m. hit hole number 15 on a golf course (!) crowded with people. Noone got hurt. Source: http://www.vg.no
