An English woman is thankful to be alive after a U.S. Air Force B-52 Stratofortress bomber flying over her house lost a part of itself. There was no possible way that she could ever have seen the piece coming.

The part that fell was a door that closes when the landing gear is retracted, said a report by the Gloucestershire Live website

Nobody was hurt but the woman, who wished to remain anonymous, said that it was a miracle she was not injured, and her house was not damaged when the part fell at about 5:30 p.m. that day. The Air Force is currently investigating the incident to try and find a cause, said Master Sgt. Renae Pittman, a spokeswoman for US Air Forces in Europe-Air Forces Africa.

The aircraft involved the incident is a part of the bomber task force, from the 2nd Bomb Wing at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana. The task force deployed to RAF Fairford in England Oct. 10.

The woman was in her home in Warwickshire, about 35 miles north of the RAF base, and called the police to report a loud thud outside. When she went out to investigate, she found a large piece of yellow metal in her front garden.

The woman told Gloucestershire Live, "We are on a flight path here, but you never expect something like this to happen. It’s a miracle that it landed in the garden and not on me in the house."

This is not the first time that something had fallen from a B-52. In 2017 an engine dropped out of a B-52 over North Dakota. Luckily there were no injuries from either incident.
