ATLANTA (WXIA) -- The FAA says a China Airlines 747 lost parts from a wing as it approached Hartsfield Jackson International Airport Sunday afternoon.
The FAA says the parts came from China Airlines Flight 5254, a Boeing 747 cargo jet flying into Atlanta from Anchorage. They said the jet lost parts from its right wing while on approach to Runway 27L at Hartsfield Jackson at about 2 p.m. Sunday. The flight landed safely.
They said local authorities found parts in the Ellenwood community, to the east of the airport. Clayton County Police helped to recover the parts from the plane. Officials said the parts included the "inbound trailing edge flap from the right wing."
The FAA said other aircraft waiting to depart on that same runway reported seeing parts falling from the plane.
No injuries were reported on the aircraft or on the ground.
