A missing major external panel was reportedly discovered on a United Airlines flight operated by Boeing upon its arrival in southern Oregon on Friday.

A United Flight 433, departing from San Francisco at 10:20 a.m., successfully landed in Medford, Ore., shortly before noon.

According to United Airlines, the external panel of the Boeing 737-800 aircraft was found to be missing from the underside after it was parked at the gate at Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport.

The plane, with 139 passengers and six crew members on board, did not report any emergency as there were no signs of damage throughout the flight.

The incident happened two months following an occurrence where a Boeing 737 Max aircraft, operated by Alaska Airlines, experienced a door panel detachment during a flight.

The Department of Justice has initiated a criminal investigation into the incident that occurred on January 5.
