Is the proper warning for this event, on a golf course, to yell "DOOR" ?

From the CNN account: "An airport vehicle met the aircraft as it exited the runway and escorted it to Bombardier Aviation... where it was discovered that the main cabin door was missing," she said.

I suspect, somehow, that the discovery was made before the aircraft actually reached Bombardier.

Ricky Nelson, who lives nearby, said he is glad he does not live in a high rise. "I'm glad I don't live on the eighth or the seventh floor coz it probably would have went straight through," he said.

Seriously? When did 'coz' become proper grammar for a news article?

This happened at my country club! I believe its on one of the final approaches for FLL, since I always see jets and prop planes flying low overhead

How do you lose a door like that? That seems like it'd be pretty hard to do.

Looks like the 1, not the 2 piece door. Maybe it wasn't locked properly???

Um..you might be thinking of a Learjet with a 2 piece door. Challenger's have a 1 piece door.
