Delvonte Tisdale May Have Fallen From a Plane
According to Phil Orlandella from the Boston Logan International Airport, officials have been asked by law enforcement to investigate the "possibility" of 16-year-old Delvonte Tisdale being able to get into a plane's wheel well and falling out during a flight.
Tisdale, 16, was found dead last weekend -- his body badly mutilated -- in an upscale neighborhood in Milton, Massachusetts. Reports have surfaced that his body was found over several blocks.
A check of AirNav shows that an aircaft landing on runway 4R would approach over Milton. In fact the LOM (Outer Marker) is called Milton. It would not be unusual for an aircaft to lower the landing gear upon reaching Milton which is about 6.9 miles from the runway. IAP Chart for ILS 4R is here.
