Blame It On The Plane? Woman Says Home Hit Twice By Ice

Recent hit cost $2,000 damage to car

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A Whittier woman says her home has now twice been a target for ice falling from the sky — and she blames the airline industry.

KNX 1070’s John Brooks reports.

Grace Caiazza says it happened once in 1984 and again this week — ice from planes headed toward LAX fell on Caiazza’s property on Vicki Drive.

The most recent bombardment hit Caizza’s car, causing $2,000 dollars in damages.

The Federal Aviation Administration has launched an investigation to determine what airlines may be involved so Caizza can file a claim for her $500 deductible.

Engineers say ice can come from small leaks in the airplane’s lavatory or galley, and as the plane descends, the ice melts and falls.

    I have watched J**B*** fly over several times and it actually appears they pull the bomb bay doors! It looks like glitter in the sky coming out the back. Bombs away!
