Evacuation Slide Detaches From Boeing Airplane, Lands in US Backyard

Evacuation Slide Detaches From Boeing Airplane, Lands in US Backyard”

Delta maintenance crews have since removed the slide from Leguia's backyard.

Police in Milton, south of Boston, alerted the agency that the slide had been found in a resident's yard.

Stephanie Leguia, a resident of a Boston suburb, told the Boston Herald that she was standing in a neighbor's backyard when an uninflated evacuation slide fell from the sky, bringing down several tree branches along the way.

The flight's pilot reported hearing a loud sound as they began their descent at Boston's Logan Airport. "And if we didn't die - I hate to think of the alternative".

Leguia was chatting with a neighbour when she saw it fall.

Despite giving those it almost hit a shock, it isn't entirely surprising that the slide fell over Milton. Upon closer inspection, she found the slide read "Boeing" and assumed it fell from a plane.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the pilot reported a loud noise as the plane approached Logan Airport and landed safely.

"No injuries or ground damage were reported to the FAA, which is investigating", the FAA said. Initially, the neighbours thought the slide was a "giant silver tarp". "Workers inspected the aircraft after landing and discovered that the right rear evacuation slide was missing", the FAA said in a statement.

"Delta is investigating an inflatable over-wing slide that was retrieved following an aircraft's landing into Boston's Logan Airport", a spokesman said in a statement. "The flight landed without incident and taxied to the gate under its own power".
