More Oregon residents in Portland are finding debris from a recent emergency plane landing at the Portland International Airport. One of a United Airlines Boeing 737 Max 9 airplane's doors blew off Flight 1282 shortly after takeoff, prompting the landing on Friday, January 5, 2024. 177 passengers were on the plane at the time, including crew members.

A school teacher discovered remains in his Cedar Hills backyard from one of the plane's doors. Headrests and a passenger's cell phone locked in air mode have also been found near Beaverton, which is about 19 miles away from the PDX airport.
