The object that reportedly came crashing through a Kentucky man’s home is still unidentified, but the FAA says it is not an airplane part.
Tommy Woosley says that the still unidentified object smashed through the wallof his Burgin, Kentucky, mobile home last weekend.
The homeowner says that the object must have hit the home when he was gone over the last weekend because when he came home, he found wall damage and damage to his bathroom.
The Mercer County Sheriff’s Department says they are seriously looking into reports of an object that may have fallen from an airplane and landed into the side of a man’s mobile home. The device is some type of pressurized canister. @WKYT pic.twitter.com/xSf5FLL0Lr

He contacted the Federal Aviation Administration in hopes that they might be able to say if the metal object came from an airplane passing over head.
However, on Friday, the FAA determined that the metal device seems to be some sort of pressurized tube.
The FAA also insists that the object is not part of any sort of airplane equipment.
Woosley says that he has also heard from several other agencies and businesses and they all say that the object does not fit any of their devices.
The National Guard and nearby Fort Campbell military base denied any part of the hunk of metal.
The Norfolk Southern Railway also does not recognize the object, either.
The object is now in the hands of the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office for further investigation.
