ELLENWOOD, Ga. —

Federal authorities are investigating after a Boeing 747 on approach to Atlanta's airport lost parts from its right wing that landed on a woman's house.

The Federal Aviation Administration said Thursday the China Airlines flight landed safely at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport after Sunday's incident. No injuries were reported.

Clayton County homeowner Pamela Ware told Atlanta station WSB-TV (http://bit.ly/16a9TRH) that she's thankful she survived after part of the wing hit her house Sunday afternoon.

The TV station reports another piece of the plane landed in front of a Wal-Mart a few miles away.
