The door plug had to land somewhere.

The door plug that blew off a Boeing 737 Max 9 airplane fell in a tree in a Portland teacher’s yard, as reported by OPB (Oregon Public Broadcasting). OPB interviewed the teacher, Bob Sauer, and he had some great quotes:

Sauer was intrigued to see the door plug’s serial number and other manufacturing details apparently handwritten on the door in permanent marker.

“That’s an interesting way of doing inventory control,” he said.
