Surveyors in lower Manhattan have found what appears to be one more piece of plane debris from the 9/11 attacks, reports DNA Info and AP. The NYPD thinks it's a piece of landing gear from one of the two hijacked planes—it even has a Boeing identification number. It was wedged between two buildings, at 51 Park Place and 50 Murray St., about three blocks from Ground Zero. The Park Place building is now the location of the controversial Park51 mosque.
