From Associated Press:

MIAMI - A panel from a cargo plane fell outside a Miami mall on Friday but no one was hurt, authorities said.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the piece fell from an Atlas Air flight en route to Miami from Santiago, Chile.

Christina Baguer, a spokeswoman for the city of Doral, said the debris is about 17 feet long and landed in front of Dillardís department store at the Miami International Mall.

She said there was no property damage and the plane landed safely.
The FAA was investigating.

I don't think that Atlas has any trucks. Probably the only way they could deliver it. :cool:

Wasn't just a panel, it was one of the flap canoe fairings. Quite a big lump. Probably being modified to fit on the roof of a pimp boulevard cruiser as we speak!

Nope, it hit the Doral area, not Carol City.
