The aft cowl of one of the engines dropped off the plane and the impact made the couple suspect the noise was from a passing storm over the region.
“We were in our bedroom and we heard the noise of an aircraft, flying low above the house. A few minutes later there was a deafening noise” reporters were told.
The piece was found in the morning, with flight safety analyst JACDEC tweeting out about the incident. The flight itself continued on its way to Malta without any issues, but investigations are being carried out.
