That piece of engine landed off of Bell Arthur Road in Pitt County.. near highway 13.
Heather Lamm lives in the neighborhood and says she was inside when she heard planes flying overhead.
Lamm says the osprey's were flying so low that the windows in her house began shaking.
She went outside with her 5-year-old to watch the planes fly by. But didn't know something fell off until their neighbors found the piece.
Her neighbors called the Sheriffs department who brought the fallen piece to the Pitt-Greenville Airport.
