CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. —
Federal authorities are investigating why pieces of a 747 cargo plane crashed into the woman’s house Sunday afternoon.
The woman lives on Newton Estate Drive in Clayton County, along a direct flight path to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
Another piece of the plane landed at a Walmart on Anvil Block Road, just a couple of miles away.
Channel 2’s Tony Thomas watched as mechanics and inspectors canvassed the right wing of the plane Wednesday night, replacing the 20-foot section that ripped off.
Homeowner Pamela Ware told Thomas she’s thankful she survived after part of that wing hit her house.
“And boom! I was like,
