Airplane Part Lands in Man’s Backyard

Airplane Part Lands in Man’s Backyard

It was a perfectly predictable Labour Day Monday for Alain Quintard before he saw it.

The 60-year-old Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, man mowed his large lawn late in the afternoon. An hour or two later, he spotted something black shining on top of his pristine grass.

“I was puzzled, because the lawn was freshly cut; there were no foreign objects on it last time I checked,” Quintard said.

A look at the credit-card-sized piece of black metal, bearing a sketch and words, left him stunned.

“When I looked at the script on it, I understood right away it was coming from the sky. It came from a plane,” he said.

“It said ‘brake manifold’ and I knew what a brake manifold is,” said Quintard, a manager for distribution quality at Molson Coors who has a technical background. His home is not far from the runways at Pearson International Airport.
