    That looks rather unlikely. It is a fairly monolithic lump of metal, 
    and if it is solid, which it seems to be, it must be quite heavy. 
    What would a globular chunk of metal like that be doing as part of a 
    plane, let alone dropping off?
    I predict that nothing more will be heard of this strange find.
