Investigators with the Transportation Safety Board have confirmed that metal pieces that fell from the sky Monday afternoon, striking four cars in Mississauga, came from one of the turbines of an Air Canada plane bound for Japan.

“A number of parts came out of the tailpipe engine,” said Don Enns, the safety board’s Ontario regional manager.
