A wing flap presumed to be from a Boeing 777 airliner, the same type of plane that crashed in San Francisco earlier this month, was found at a farm in the vicinity of Tokyo's Narita International Airport last week.
Japan's Jiji Press reports that authorities are investigating but do not know which airline the flap came from. Narita airport has advised all airlines to take special precautions to prevent mechanical parts from falling off their planes, and to report whether they find any planes that have lost a wing flap.
