    Pilot finds hole in plane's fuselage; airline and FBI investigate

    (CNN) -- FBI investigators were working Tuesday to discover what caused a small hole in the body of a US Airways jet, which was discovered by a pilot as he checked the aircraft before a flight.

    The puncture in the Boeing 737 airliner is the size and shape of a bullet hole, but that doesn't mean someone shot at the plane, said Amy Thorenson, a spokeswoman for the FBI in Charlotte, North Carolina. Investigators don't yet know what could have caused the hole, she said.
