Stuff happens. Lot of moving parts in the slipstream of an aircraft. Back in the early '70's I worked for a company that operated DC-6, CV-640, and L-188 freighters out of ATL. From time to time the airport would call us to come identify/pick-up various sheet metal panels, cowling parts, etc., that had been brought in from surrounding neighborhoods in the runway flight paths. Old news is no news. Glad no one was injured.

This is not really new, and I not sure it is news worthy. Pieces have been falling off planes for years. Usually because of improper installation. the plane obviously landed safely.... get a new door, or repair the old one. Obviously did ok for the flight... maybe they can put a CDL against it and fly it until a new one arrives.
