You don't want an aluminum fire pit. Bad analogy on the writers part.

If a car runs off the road onto my property, do I get to keep the car?

Do you really need to contact a lawyer to figure this one out?

I go by the rules of flotsam and jetsam. These parts would be considered flotsam, and thus still belong to the original owner (though I am entitled to a salvage fee, per the gold-fringed flag dictate in the admirality court).

Should an aircraft intentionally jettison something in order to remain airborne, I am entitled to keep it as it falls under jetsam.

elvisaintdead: Marcus Aurelius: The FAA has no sense of humor when it comes to plane crashes.  They get upset if you even keep, like, an arm that no one is using any more.  None.

Tell that to Armie Hammer.


I know he's a real person, but that sounds like a bad attempt at a fake name.

kinda would have been more interested to know if you can sue the airline for possible loss of value to the property since it's smack under a flightpath and the debris made national news.

Accidentally dropping something on the ground immediately terminates any legal claim you have to that item.

I learned this from my dog.

So the precedent of finders keepers does not apply.
