Slide falls from plane, lands in garden, authorities investigate

Aviation authorities in the US are investigating how an inflatable evacuation slide fell from a Delta Air Lines’ plane as it approached Boston Airport and landed in a garden.

The pilot noted a ‘loud sound’ as the plane started its descent into Boston.

However, there were no other issues with the plane, which landed safely.

Homeowner Wenhan Huang was in his garden in Massechusetts when the chute fell, and he watched it land on his lawn.

Delta said: “Our maintenance team is inspecting the aircraft; at this time we do not have any additional information. The flight landed without incident and taxied to the gate under its own power.”

A full investigation is underway by the Federal Aviation Administration.
