Delta Airlines flight 2412 was on its way from Orlando to Atlanta, when a part of its right wing fell off.  The missing wing panel of Boeing 757 was first spotted by passengers after which, the pilot instantly decided to make emergency landing.

There were 179 passengers and 6 crew members on the plane, who then took a sigh of relief when the plane was safely landed in Atlanta at about 7:30 pm, on March 16, 2014.

According to Delta Airlines spokesperson, the broken wing panel did not affect the ability of aircraft to fly or land.

The incident could have been very serious and undoubtedly, it was very scary for the passengers to look out and see part of a wing missing.
