A group of golfers in Mount Holly, North Carolina, got the surprise of a lifetime today when a door panel from a passing plane crashed onto the green, authorities said.
The panel, approximately 15 inches wide, landed at Green Meadows Golf Course around 8:20 a.m., according to the Federal Aviation Administration.
It was dislodged from American Airlines Flight 1910 as the plane approached Charlotte Douglas International Airport, according to the FAA.

“A golfer called the Federal Aviation Administration and reported that the panel fell,” the agency said in a statement. “The FAA is investigating.”
No injuries were reported and the plane, an Airbus 321, landed safely a short time later, according to the FAA.
