Part of 9/11 Plane Found in New York City Alley

New York City police say a piece of what is believed to be one of the planes destroyed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center may have been found.

Police say surveyors found what looks like the landing gear of one of the jets wedged above a narrow alley between two Manhattan buildings. The word "Boeing" and an indentification number can plainly be seen.

Officials are trying to figure out how to remove the part. They also are considering whether to look for possible human remains around the buildings.

Two jetliners slammed into the two World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001 in the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil.
