    Engine falls off plane during flight

    Aviation officials in the United States are searching for an engine that fell off a Boeing 747 cargo plane in mid-flight, possibly over Lake Michigan in the Great Lakes region.

    The Kalitta Air jet was en route from Chicago's O'Hare International Airport to New York's John F Kennedy International Airport when the pilot radioed air traffic controllers to alert them to mechanical problems on Wednesday.

    Officials with the Federal Aviation Administration say controllers instructed the pilot to make an emergency landing in Detroit, Michigan.

    It was only at that point that officials realised the jet had not suffered engine failure but that one of its four engines had physically disappeared, an FAA spokeswoman said.
