Aircraft equipment falls from plane, lands in Milton resident’s yard

The Delta Airlines Charter

A Delta Air Lines spokeswoman confirmed that it had fallen from a plane en route from Paris to Boston at around noon on Sunday.

Milton police later alerted the FAA that the slide had been found in a resident's backyard.

A MA man got quite the scare when an evacuation slide fell from a Delta airplane and almost hit him.

Luckily, no one was injured due to the falling slide. It broke four branches before smashing into the ground just feet from where the neighbours were stood chatting.

'If it had hit us, we would have been dead - it's that heavy, ' Leguia told the Boston Herald. Delta maintenance crews later came to retrieve the slide.

Storms could affect post-Thanksgiving travel
All roads in and out of Casper were closed Saturday morning, including the entire 300-mile stretch of Interstate 25 in Wyoming. Northeastern Colorado roads were closed because of strong winds, blowing and drifting snow and poor visibility.

Local resident Amy Caldwell said she saw the slide falling through the air while driving. The source of the noise, the falling slide, was only discovered once the plane had landed.

"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.

Milton Police Deputy Chief James O'Neil said police responded to the location after the slide fell.

The US Federal Aviation Administration is investigating after an evacuation slide fell off a Delta plane and landed in a backyard in Milton, Massachusetts. It came crashing down from a flight traveling from Paris' Charles de Gaulle Airport to Boston's Logan International Airport.

An evacuation slide that fell from a jetliner into the yard of a suburban home narrowly missed crushing a man who was doing some gardening at the time.
