Boeing Co. said it was confident that a piece of aircraft, found wedged between two buildings in lower Manhattan recently, came from one of two airplanes that struck the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001.

Authorities are still trying to determine which of the two planes the piece of wreckage came from.

A Boeing representative confirmed to the New York Police Department that wreckage discovered last week, in a narrow alleyway behind 51 Park Place and 50 Murray Street in Manhattan's financial district, "is believed to be from one of the two aircraft destroyed on September 11, 2001, but it could not be determined which one," Paul Browne, NYPD's chief spokesman, said on Monday.
