Piece of Flying Plane Falls Into Miami International Mall Parking Lot

A piece of a flying plane fell from the sky, crashing into the parking lot at Miami International Mall in Doral this morning around 11:30. Luckily, no one was hurt and the plane landed safely.

The 17-foot-long panel fell from an Atlas Air Cargo 747 en route from Santiago, Chile, and landed in front of Dillard's department store. The part first hit a tree before tumbling into the parking lot. No buildings or cars were damaged.

The plane, already in descent, landed safely at Miami International Airport.
