I was looking at Plattsburg intl airport, and noticed a 747 with an engine missing sitting on the tarmac.
Did it fall off in flight?
There's another one missing all four engines. If the engine on the one you noticed fell off in flight it would have been all over. Most likely it was just an engine removed for a much more mundane reason.

4.) A select few Maintanance and Flight crew were assigned to the Black programs during the 80's which turned out to be the creation and testing of the Stealth Aircrafts out in the Nevada deserts. I had a close personal friend who was part of this program and he would leave base without word and be gone for a couple weeks then return and could not say where he had been! We never knew what he was up to until long after the Stealth program was officially announced.
