A Calgary homeowner wonders if ice from a passing plane fell in her backyard.
Patricia Praud woke up Saturday to find three large pieces of ice in the snow in her yard in the northwest community of Collingwood.

“There’s two indentations in the lawn where one hit and bounced twice and landed over there and then I looked and there was three. Quite the size. I would say that one is about the size of maybe a football and one like a basketball.”

She says there were no footprints in the snow.

Her neighbour Barbara Vinsome inspected the ice and believes one large piece broke apart when it landed.

“Looking at them, they could all probably join together in one solid piece of ice because they are all fairly uniform in depth.

Patricia says if it did fall from the sky, she’s very lucky the ice didn’t fall on her house.

She’ll be contacting Transport Canada ask someone to investigate.

In a statement, Transport Canada said:

“Transport Canada takes all reports of possible debris coming from aircraft very seriously. Every reported incident is investigated by department officials and if it can be determined that the ice came from an aircraft, the department will try to identify the air carrier to ensure the problem is rectified.”

Astonishing moment street cleaner cheats death by inches when block of ice ‘falls from plane’ in Kew

This is the incredible moment a block of ice falling from the sky narrowly misses a street cleaner in leafy Kew Gardens.
CCTV footage captured the moment council worker Serhiy Myeshkov is startled by the loud “explosion” of sound as the 20kg sheet of ice crashed to the ground “like a meteorite”.
He was working under a busy flight path to Heathrow in North Road, yards from Kew Gardens station, leading to speculation from onlookers that it fell from a plane.
Amir Khan, 39, of taxi firm International Chauffeurs, captured the moment on the taxi firm’s security camera at just after 9am on Wednesday.

He said: “It was like the start of a disaster movie like The Day After Tomorrow.
“It made such a loud noise like a meteorite crashing down. The street cleaner was so confused and scared. Everyone came running out to look at the sky. It was crazy.”

His boss Mos Sayid added: “I walk my kids round that corner all the time it has me worried for them. I live close by so I’m constantly under the flight path – there is no escape.
“It’s a miracle no one was hit. It was a really big block of ice – bigger than your head. I hope something changes so it doesn’t happen again.”
Vipin Chopra, 50, was inside the off-licence when he heard what sounded like a “huge explosion” from outside.
He said: “The airline is at fault, its under a flightpath. I keep looking up thinking it could happen again.ice3a

“It’s such a popular area school kids always walk along there. “Anything falling from that height could have killed.
“The airlines need to do something to ensure it doesn’t happen again.”
In comparison to the 2.5 million flights a year in UK airspace, approximately 30 ice falls per year are reported to the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
They say they can be caused by leaks from planes or when ice which has naturally formed on an aircraft at higher altitudes breaks off as it descends into warmer air.
A spokesman for CAA said: “Although ice does very occasionally fall from aircraft, it can also be the result of meteorological phenomena.
“We receive around 30 reported ice falls every year, although we are not certain how many of these incidents are the result of ice falling from an aircraft.”

The sky is falling? Alliston man says odd-shaped ice chunk came from high above

It came from the sky, but how it got there is anyone’s guess.

George Bearse was at his home on Callander Crescent in Alliston Saturday afternoon when his wife heard a loud thud outside their home.

As a former member of the Peel police bomb squad, any sudden noise automatically causes his ears to perk up.

So he went outside to investigate and discovered an odd-shaped chunk of ice that had seemingly crash-landed on the gravel walkway between his and the neighbour’s home.

The object was about a foot and a half long, weighed five pounds and had an elongated aerodynamic shape, almost like a missile.

Landed in Gurgaon village after falling out of aircraft; scientists were called in

Written by Sakshi Dayal | Gurgaon | Updated: January 21, 2018 1:34 pm

Human waste discarded mid-air by a passing aircraft led to some confusion — and comedy — at Gurgaon’s Fazilpur Badli village on Saturday. As the human waste landed in a field with a thud, many residents mistook it for a meteor and claimed it came “shooting out of the sky”. Not long after, a team of scientists rushed to the spot — only to confirm that it was, in fact, faeces.

Six-foot chunk of mystery yellow ice crashes through roof of a woman’s home in Chicago

The snow may have stopped falling in Chicago, but one woman was extremely puzzled after she found a chunk of yellow ice which had fallen straight through her roof.

Dawn Scarpulla first knew something was wrong when she heard a big boom followed by a crash.

‘I found ice – yellow ice – on my roof,’ she told CBS 2. ‘When we put the pieces together it was like a five- to six-foot piece of ice, so it was big,’ Scarpulla says.

The yellow ice broke apart and cracked her ceiling.

She has decide to keep a sample of the mysterious substance in her garage freezer.

One theory is that the ice may have fallen from a plane that was landing a Chicago O’Hare International Airport.

Aircraft fly over her home constantly but the FAA says because planes are de-iced, it’s unlikely the large icicle fell from a jet.

Even the police have been involved, visiting her house to take pictures of the scene and taking some of the yellowing remnants away in an evidence bag for analysis but all leads have so far gone cold.

Ice possibly from plane falls through roof of San Bernardino home; 2nd incident in 5 weeks

10/ 12/ 2017 en 6:09 | Publicado en Casuística, Daños, Materiales | Comentarios desactivados en Ice possibly from plane falls through roof of San Bernardino home; 2nd incident in 5 weeks

Rob McMillan. Tuesday, December 12, 2017. SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (KABC) —
For the second time in five weeks, an Inland Empire family has reported ice, possibly from an airplane, falling through their roof and landing on their bed.

Claudelle Curry said he was watching TV with his wife around 9:30 p.m. Sunday in their home in the 1400 block of Arizona Avenue in San Bernardino, when the whole house shook.

“Still shaking our heads, wondering what in the world is going on,” he said, “The sound was horrendous. It sounded like a bomb that went off.”

At first, Curry didn’t know what was going on. When he walked into the master bedroom, he found the bed and floor covered in insulation from the attic. There was also a gaping hole in the ceiling.

“And then we saw the big huge white objects on the floor,” Curry said. “And I was like what is this? It was ice.”

Curry believes it came from an airplane, and a similar incident happened in early November in Chino, when a chunk of ice came crashing down into the home of Brandon Blanchard.

Blanchard told Eyewitness News he’s been wondering what’s going on after his incident. He was just paid off by his insurance company, but said he’s still out the $1,000 deductible.

As for Curry and his wife, they filed a report with the San Bernardino Police Department. A spokesperson with the FAA told Eyewitness News they had no knowledge of the incident.

“Someone can get killed,” Curry said. “That’s the frightening part about it.”
Curry and his wife are now sleeping in the guest room. They’re just happy they didn’t go to bed early on Sunday night because if they had, the ice would have fallen on top of them.

“It’s scary, every time you think about what could have happened, you get chills,” Curry said.

Ice That Tore Through Chino Roof Believed To Have Come From LAX-Bound Plane

4/ 11/ 2017 en 4:37 | Publicado en Casuística, Daños, Hielo del fuselaje, Materiales | Comentarios desactivados en Ice That Tore Through Chino Roof Believed To Have Come From LAX-Bound Plane

CHINO (CBSLA) — A Chino home was sporting a blue tarp Wednesday to cover a hole in its roof caused by a falling chunk of ice, believed to have come from a plane that flew overhead.

A large chunk of ice crashed through the roof of Brandon Blanchard’s home Saturday night. He believes the ice came from a plane headed for Los Angeles International Airport 50 miles away.

The ice tore through the San Bernardino County home and landed in a bathtub. Blanchard said it sounded like an explosion.

“We think we’re fortunate too, that it landed in the bathtub,” he said. He said he thinks with the force of the fall, the tub kept the ice from tearing an even bigger hole through his home.

Since the ice was not blue, it did not come from a plane’s bathroom, but may have come from a leak in a galley kitchen.

The home and the surrounding neighborhood lies in the flight path of LAX, so ice has fallen in the area before. In 2006, ice crashed through the roof of a home just two miles away.

The FAA is checking radar replays to see which planes were in the area at the time of Saturday’s incident.

A huge block of ice fell from the sky and smashed into a family’s back garden, leaving a large crater and a mystery.SWNS_ICE_BLOCK_06

The Helliwell family say they’re fortunate no one was injured or killed when the ice chunk landed with a “big boom” and shook their house.

The impact left a crater measuring 1.4m by 1.2m (4ft 7in by 3ft 11in) in the middle of their lawn with bits of ice scattered across the grass.

There has been no obvious explanation but it is thought the ice may have fallen from an aircraft passing thousands of feet overhead. Continue Reading Mystery as massive ice block falls from sky leaving huge crater in family’s back garden…

CAPE CORAL, Fla. –

Some Cape Coral residents have a mystery on their hands after a big chunk of ice crash landed in their neighborhood.

It happened late Thursday at the corner of NE 23rd Terrace and 14th Place.

All that’s left there now is a dent in the ground where the ice landed. Neighbors are glad no one was hurt but are curious about where the chunk came from.

It was Tiffany Laymance’s husband who saw the whole thing happen while he was walking his dog. He says he heard something cut through the air and hit the ground.

“He comes running in the house and tells me that I need to grab my phone and jump in the truck,” Tiffany said.

They took a quick drive through the neighborhood to investigate the crash landing, finding a big chunk of ice lying in a crater in the ground.

TSB investigates whether ice falling from plane caused hole in roof of Calgary home

4/ 03/ 2017 en 4:05 | Publicado en Casuística, Daños, Materiales | Comentarios desactivados en TSB investigates whether ice falling from plane caused hole in roof of Calgary home

A woman claims falling ice from an overhead aircraft pierced her roof. As Gary Bobrovitz reports, if she is correct, it would be the second time that has happened in Calgary in the span of a week.

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) is investigating whether falling ice from an aircraft is responsible for a large hole in the roof of a Calgary home.

Judy Landry said it happened at around noon on Saturday, March 4 at the home she shares with her husband in the 100 block of Riverbirch Road S.E.

“Sitting in my living room and all of a sudden we heard a thunderous boom,” Landry said. “Not sure what it was.”

Landry said they later discovered a hole in the southwest corner of their roof, but weren’t able to find any errant objects in their attic, leading them to believe it was a caused by a chunk of ice that had since melted.

Less than a week earlier, a chunk of ice fell through the roof of a home in the community of Dover, located less than 10 kilometres away.

In an email sent to Landry, Bill Scholefield with Transport Canada said “as with the prior incident, the damage to your roof was also probably ice that fell from an aircraft.”

Landy hopes an investigation by the TSB will determine which airline is responsible.

“We just don’t want to have to pay for it,” she explained, saying she and her husband have reported the incident to their home insurance provider but are currently stuck paying a $1,000 deductible to have the hole fixed.

In an email sent to Landry, Bill Holt with the TSB said “it could be [from] almost any aircraft that may have flown over your home.”

“We will have to look at radar tapes and try to overlap your house with your exact location.”
