NEW YORK (AP) – The body of a man was found in the wheel well of a plane that landed at John F. Kennedy International Airport from London’s Heathrow Airport, authorities said.

Port Authority police found the body on the plane after British Airways Flight 177 landed at about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

No identification was found on the man, believed to be in his 30s. John Lampl, a British Airways spokesman, said Wednesday that company was awaiting autopsy results to help determine if the man boarded the plane in London or at an earlier stop.

Last week, the body of a man in his 20s was found in the wheel well of a plane at JFK after a flight from Montego Bay, Jamaica.
