Pilot Finds Hole in Plane’s Fuselage

The FBI trying to discover what caused a small hole in a US Airways plane, which was discovered by a pilot as he checked the aircraft before a flight.

From CNN:

The puncture in the Boeing 737 airliner is the size and shape of a bullet hole, but that doesn’t mean someone shot at the plane, said Amy Thorenson, a spokeswoman for the FBI in Charlotte, North Carolina. Investigators don’t yet know what could have caused the hole, she said.

The aircraft had flown to Charlotte from Philadelphia and was being prepped for another flight when the pilot discovered the hole above a passenger window toward the back of the plane, according to airline officials. The airline pulled the plane from service and called in the FBI.

It’s unclear whether the hole appeared before or during that flight or while the airliner was on the ground in Charlotte, but investigators and the airline were operating under the assumption that it happened in flight, Thorenson said.

    I suspect someone shot at the plane………who knows. Should be easy to see if it’s a bullet hole ?????

    YUP.I was right………they found it was a bullet hole.
    They say it was random they think and not terrorism…….well for gawds sake. HOW is this random?: It takes a lot to just go shoot at an airplane for fun and games don’t you think???
    My gawd,I swear we are losing our grip totally on common sense across the board.
    I always flash back to O.J.and the absurdity of that case.And his murdered wife left letters in a vault saying he would probably murder her etc. etc.but that was never taken seriously for some odd reason.
    Well you get the drift.

    It’s obvious that the Shooter wasn’t sitting and waiting on a Cloud up in the Sky— Had to be done while on the ground, but odd that no one around saw anyone with a Gun or heard the Shot (or, maybe they DID). I bet the FBI will get to the bottom of this “planned Hit”. Out of everyone On-Board, there had to be either one nervous Passenger on that Plane who has a definite personal Story to tell, or it was someone with an unknown, but predictable Enemy. Question: Are Airplane Windows “Bulletproof”?

    hmmmmmmmmmmm………I wonder if they are? I would HOPE so!
    This story is so odd that it seems to me it can be tracked pretty easily ……..hope so.
