SHARE ANOTHER JETLINER DROPS PARTS OVER N.Y.

For the second time in as many days, a piece of an aircraft fell out of the sky onto a New York street, officials said Friday.

Police in the Howard Beach neighborhood of Queens near John F. Kennedy International Airport said a resident found a 9-foot-long wing flap Friday morning that had gouged an 1.5-inch depression in the street.The flap came from the right wing of TWA Flight 782, a Boeing 727, as it approached the airport from Orlando, Fla., Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Arlene Salac said. TWA said the plane landed at Kennedy Airport at 11:27 p.m. Thursday.

It was the second such incident in New York since Wednesday, when a Delta Air Lines jetliner was forced to make an emergency landing because of an engine failure that ejected a 10-inch-long piece of metal from the engine onto two houses and a car in Flushing, Queens.
