(NYDailyNews) Japanese authorities were seeking American help Monday to identify a body found in the landing gear compartment of a plane that arrived in Tokyo from New York.

A mechanic made the grim discovery after Delta Flight 59 landed at Tokyo’s Narita International Airport about 6:05 p.m. local time Sunday, a Chiba prefecture police spokesman said.

(BusinessWeek) Tarmacs are supposed to be protected against intruders, so a man climbing onto the plane would have breached security wherever the incident began. The case highlights a possible weak spot in the safety crackdown ordered after a Nigerian man tried to blow up a Detroit-bound Delta flight on Dec. 25

Ya think?
