OREGON, USA, March 15 — A United Airlines Boeing 737-800 landed safely in Oregon today after it was found to have a missing external panel, officials said.

United Flight 433 landed at Medford Airport around 1:45 p.m. PDT (2045 GMT) today carrying 139 passengers and six crew after departing from San Francisco, the Federal Aviation Administration and airline said.

The FAA said a post-landing airline inspection of the 25-year-old airplane revealed a missing panel and the agency will investigate as will United.

“We’ll conduct a thorough examination of the plane and perform all the needed repairs before it returns to service,” the airline said in a statement.

Boeing did not comment, directing questions to United Airlines. According to FAA records, the plane was built in late 1998.

The Rogue Valley Times posted a dramatic photo of the airplane with the missing panel. Traffic was briefly halted at the airport to search for the panel.
