The discovery of a peice of landing gear from a Boeing 767 in a narrow space between two buildings near the World Trade Center is a mystery. What aircraft is the peice from and how did it get there are two of the first questions that need to be answered.
The 4 to 5 foot long piece of landing gear with rope strung through it was found in an 18-inch wide alley between 51 Park Place and 50 Murray Street. The location of the piece and the rope suggest that the piece was lowered into place from above.
The discovery of a piece of Boeing landing gear in an empty space between two buildings near the World Trade Center raises a number of questions. The suspicion that the piece had been planted was raised in the earliest reports of the discovery. The New York police have admitted that it may very well have been lowered into the space:
“We are also looking at the possibility that it was lowered by a rope,” said Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. “We are not ruling it out…there’s a rope that is intertwined in the part itself.” NBC New York reports that Kelly noted that “there were no marks on the buildings indicating the piece hit the walls on the way down. ‘It would have had to fall down at a certain angle,’ [he] said.”
It should be noted that this piece is probably quite heavy and dense and would have been traveling with a great deal of inertia behind it. The alley that it was found in is roughly perpendicular to the direction the piece would have been flying if it came from the plane that struck the South Tower. This means that it would have had to hit the back wall of the Murray Street building to lose its forward momentum, which would have most likely broken the wall. As Police Commissioner Kelly says, “there were no marks on the buildings.”
There are a number of questions that need to be answered about this piece of landing gear:
What aircraft did it come from? Are there any time-tracked numbered parts that would identify the aircraft it is from?
How did it get into the tight space between the building without leaving significant damage and marks as it came flying into the building with great momentum?
Who will take charge of the investigation? The New York Police Department or the F.B.I.?
Will this discovery result in the F.B.I. releasing the photographs of the 9-11 damage that occurred to buildings on Park Place? What objects from the aircraft caused the damage and where are the photographs of them?
