an unidentified person examines a piece of metal that appears to be a landing gear door from an airplane is shown, Friday, Sept. 7, 2012, after it fell to the ground in Kent, Wash., south of Seattle.
Kent, Washington - The Federal Aviation Administration confirms that a piece of metal that fell to the ground in a Kent, Wash., neighborhood was part of a Boeing 767's landing gear door.
Witnesses say the refrigerator-size panel hit the ground and skipped about 30 feet before stopping in a street Friday morning. No one in the neighborhood about 15 miles south of Seattle was hurt.
Neighbors say a cargo jet flew low over the area at about the same time the part came down.
Photos on news station KOMO's website
show part of an identification plate on the object that has the word "aircraft" along with a serial number.
FAA officials aren't saying if they've located the plane that the part came from.
