The U.K CAA has launched an investigation after a suitcase fell from the baggage pod of an Aberdeen-bound BAe Jetstream plane as it was flying at 12,000ft over the North Sea. The incident happened on 18 August as the Eastern Airways Jetstream 32 aircraft was on its way from Leeds Bradford airport with five passengers and three crew on board. As the aircraft passed through turbulence the baggage pod door indication light came on. (Scotsman)
