Plane Debris Falls from Sky
Shortly before 3:00 PM on Thursday, October 16th, school children at Highland Oaks Elementary School in north Arcadia were surprised to see a piece of sheet metal fall from the sky. The piece of metal landed on the soccer field at the school and no one was injured. The children immediately reported the incident to teachers and APD was called. Officers found that the approximately 2’ x 2’ piece of lightweight metal had possibly fallen from a passing plane. The item was removed by Officers and the FAA was notified. The FAA is conducting an investigation into the incident and believes that the piece of metal came loose from a plane which flew out of Brackett Field in Pomona.
