Boeing Co. said it was confident that a piece of aircraft, found wedged between two buildings in lower Manhattan recently, came from one of two airplanes that struck the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. Authorities are still trying to determine which of the two planes the piece of wreckage came from.
The wreckage was discovered last week in the financial district in lower Manhattan. The plane part comes from underneath the wing of the plane, not the landing gear, as it was initially believed. What is visible is the Boeing identification number.
The piece found measures 5 feet high and 3 feet wide: The NYPD is working with the New York City medical examiner’s office as it prepares to sift the soil around the site where plane part was found for more evidence.
