LAS VEGAS (AP) — A company that provides training services for the U.S. military says an access panel from one of its aircraft dropped off and fell into a Las Vegas neighborhood near Nellis Air Force Base.

The Federal Aviation Administration said it was investigating the incident Thursday involving an A-4 jet belonging to Draken International.

The panel hit the ground between a vehicle and a building and no injuries were reported.

Draken said in a statement that the panel fell off the airplane shortly after it left Nellis on a training mission.

Neighborhood resident Anthony Pitts said he was scared when he heard a loud smack that he first thought was a gunshot.
