cargo door become detached from the aircraft and
fell to the ground somewhere over Germany.
The two pilots landed the aircraft safely, Bono,
(Paul David Hewson) and four friends onboard
The pilots were unaware during flight that the
cargo door had separated from the aircraft, it
wasn't until they landed the aircraft and
realized that the door came off and that two
suitcases had fallen from the luggage
The pilots told investigators there was no
structural indication to the aircraft of a cargo
door separation from the cockpit other than big
thud coming from the rear of the plane which had
occurred about an hour into the flight and a
light buffeting to the aircraft while making a
right-hand turn onto the approach.
