Special Delivery

Posted By on Wed, Apr 5, 2006 at 4:00 AM

An Arkansas farmer got an unexpected delivery today from a FedEx cargo plane. The plane, a MD-10 jet, was en route from Memphis to Seattle when it lost a portion of its engine. The 5- to 6-foot piece of the engine landed in a farmer’s field about 70 miles northwest of Memphis. No injuries were reported.
