Ok before i acually post the article in question I wan’t to add that this is highly unusual! How on earth can a jet engine fall from the sky an be unidentified?

They suspect it’s actually a booster from a space rocket but I have my doubts on the matter (even so it would be more damaged if it actually crashed from space….)

This reeks of space travel or time distortion I think which remids me actually of a movie named “Donnie Darko”

Donnie Darko

Anyway here is the article in question:

A piece of an aircraft, believed to be an engine, struck a Hpakant jade mine near Kachin State’s Hmaw His Zar village early yesterday morning, according to state officials and locals.

Lone Khin villager Ko Maung Myo told The Myanmar Times yesterday that at 6am he heard what sounded like an explosion and felt the ground vibrate.

“Every local thought it was the explosion of heavy artillery,” he said. “I walked over to it and saw it was part of an engine.”

It struck near an abandoned jade mine between Hmaw His Zar village and Nat Ma Pyeit village in Hpakant township. The mysterious cylindrical object is about 12 feet (3.7 metres) long and 5 feet in diameter, said Ko Maung Myo, who took several photos of it.

“I think it was an engine because I found a diode and many copper wires at the tail of the body,” he said. “It also looks like a jet engine block.”

The air near the object smelled acrid, as though something was burning, he said.
