A Delta Airlines Boeing 777-200, registration N703DN performing flight DL-408 (dep Jan 8th) from Tel Aviv (Israel) to New York JFK,NY (USA), departed Ben Gurion Airport's runway 26 and climbed out seemingly without incident and was enroute over the Atlantic several hours later, when a runway inspection the following morning discovered a couple of parts on the departure runway, that were subsequently identified to belong to N703DN. The flight crew continued the flight to New York for a safe landing.

The airport reported, that a radar system detected the debris and issued an alarm, the tower controller subsequently operated surveillance cameras but in the darkness just before midnight could not see the debris and cancelled the alarm believing it was false. Five aircraft operated on the runway during the night until the runway inspection discovered the debris.

Unions argued in defense of the controller however, that not all runway surveillance cameras were operational.
