Just thought I’d put this out here. This past Thursday a Draken Douglas A-4K Skyhawk had the aft engine access door separate from the aircraft shortly after departing Nellis AFB. The door was recovered just south of Craig Road, but still missing is the right side drop tank tail cone that was knocked from the tank after being struck by the access door. A search by an LVMPD helicopter failed to locate it. Anyway, if someone is searching crash sites between Craig Road and Las Vegas Speedway, keep an eye out for it. If found, please contact me at the Las Vegas FAA/FSDO-702-617-8562. Thank you.

Another part fell from the same company?

A plane part fell from the sky and into a Las Vegas neighborhood

https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/07/us/plane-part-fell-from-sky-las-vegas-trnd/index.html

A "loud boom" that residents of a Las Vegas neighborhood thought was a bomb or gunshot turned out to be part of a plane that fell to the ground Thursday afternoon.

Resident Maria Delgado told CNN affiliate KVVU she heard the piece bounce down the roof, hit a wall and land on the sidewalk in front of her yard. She wasn't sure where the giant piece of metal came from.
Nearby Nellis Air Force Base confirmed the panel belonged to an A-4 military plane operated by Draken International, a military aircraft contractor. The plane lost the part during a "routine training mission," but the cause is still unknown, Draken officials said.
Federal Aviation Administration officials arrived shortly after the incident. No one was injured, though debris damaged a resident's car.
 
 
"All these kids out here ... what if that airplane door would've hit them?" resident Anthony Pitts told the affiliate.

Yeah, this one didn’t make the news, but the company seemed to really want to find it. I’m guessing it’s in an open field between Craig Road and the Las Vegas Speedway... Or it may have found its way on eBay..
