The National Transportation Safety Board recovered the door plug that detached from an Alaska Airlines flight and caused an emergency landing.

The piece was found in a Portland man’s backyard and is being examined at a lab in Washington, D.C. The incident has raised concerns in the neighborhood, but no one was injured.

“NTSB has recovered the door plug from Alaska Airlines Flight 1282 Boeing 737-9 MAX. NTSB investigators are currently examining the door plug and will send it to the NTSB Materials Laboratory in Washington, DC for further examination,” the NTSB X account wrote.

“I hadn’t realized that we were part of the story, really,” neighbor Karen Donahue said.

“We’ve always known that we’re in a flight path, and now it kind of makes me even a little more nervous when I go to bed at night. I had no idea that a door might be flying through my roof.”

As a result, the Federal Aviation Administration grounded all Boeing 737 Max 9s for inspection, and United Airlines found loose bolts on some of its aircraft related to the door plug.

“Since we began preliminary inspections on Saturday, we have found instances that appear to relate to installation issues in the door plug — for example, bolts that needed additional tightening,” the administration stated.

“These findings will be remedied by our Tech Ops team to safely return the aircraft to service.”
