DOOR FALLS OFF PLANE MID-FLIGHT!

A landing gear door fell of a KC-135 operating out of RAF Mildenhall.
US Air Force staff in Suffolk have appealed for help in finding a landing gear door which fell off an aircraft mid-flight.
The door dropped from a KC-135 refuelling plane during a flight from RAF Mildenhall to the Wash.
The plane from the 100th Air Refueling Wing was on a routine mission when the panel fell off on Thursday.
The USAF has appealed for anyone who finds the door, measuring one foot by two feet, to report it immediately.
The aircraft travelled north from RAF Mildenhall toward RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire before carrying out the refuelling mission over the Wash and returning to base.
A USAF spokesman said it was not clear at what stage of the flight the door fell off, nor what caused the accident.
The spokesman said: "If anyone discovers this door, they should contact local authorities immediately."
