When Cherry Hill resident Jack Davis was coming home just before midnight last night, it looked at first as though the big hunk of metal in front of his house was part of somebody's car. Then he looked a little closer. "I said, . . . this looks like it's a piece of an airplane," Davis said. "And it was," complete with a blue-lettered insignia that said dependable service. That wasn't the only piece of an airplane falling out of the sky over Cherry Hill last night. Cherry Hill police said a security guard at the Cherry Hill Mall found another chunk of metal from an aircraft, measuring about 2 foot by 3 foot, around 11:15 p.m. Spokesmen for the Federal Aviation Administration were not available for comment early today, but it appeared that the pieces had come from a Hawaiian Airlines DC-8 that made an emergency landing about 11:30 p.m. at Philadelphia International Airport.

She may be his Santa Claus, but she knows him only by his code name. 11C1-5M. He's a patient at Norristown State Hospital who wanted a ring for Christmas. Not just any ring. A silver ring. With an Air Force insignia. Size 7 1/2. She's a Pennsburg resident and describes herself only as a middle-age secretary for a large corporation. For a decade, she has been among the 200- plus volunteers who buy Christmas gifts for more than 500 patients they never meet, patients who otherwise would get nothing.

The Air Force is taking off into the mild blue yonder with a new uniform, one stripped of traditional insignia, epaulets and brass. The Air Force's top general calls the uniform a modern, uncluttered, understated, stylish version of an airline pilot's suit. But the uniform is not flying well with many of the troops, especially officers, whose attire would change the most. The uniform was unveiled in January by Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Merrill A. McPeak, who has pushed the change for two years.

Kathleen Weil, the couple's daughter, said the intruders did not harm or threaten her parents, who were in the house alone, but they rummaged through the Pattersons' belongings.

The outsourcing of the action movie peaks this week with a French invasion represented in part by "District B13: Ultimatum. " It's a sequel to the awesome "District B13," directed by Pierre Morel, who last year gave us the blunt-force classic "Taken" and today returns with the more garish "From Paris With Love. " Meanwhile, his "B13" franchise has been turned over to director Patrick Alessandrin, although it's still under the banner of producer Luc Besson, who wrote the screenplay, such as it is, or isn't.

In the automobile business, special editions are a kind of Centrum Silver for older models. They are a favorite way of improving the sales health of vehicles that haven't been redesigned for a while. Perhaps that's why we now have an Olympic Edition of the Buick Regal, a midsize sedan that hasn't had a major redesign since 1997. By training the spotlight on the Regal, this Olympics-inspired collaboration of Buick stylists and men's clothing designer Joseph Abboud also reminds us that this conservative but attractive car has much to recommend it. It boasts good quality and value, for openers.

The Athletics are returning to the city of their birth, returning to the city where they once formed a baseball dynasty, returning to Philadelphia for the first time since they said sayonara and headed to Kansas City nearly a half-century ago. It's taken 49 years, but the A's - the club that was sold by Connie Mack to a Kansas City businessman for $604,000 in 1954, then relocated to Oakland in 1968 - will be playing three interleague games against...

The acquisition of New York-based Insignia and its Insignia/ESG real estate unit would give Los Angeles-based CB Richard Ellis the strong New York, London, Paris and Hong Kong presence it has long sought.

When the Chester County Sheriff's Department decided it was time for new uniforms, Sgt. David Spigarelli sat down in front of his home computer and pounded out ideas for a new patch to match. The result: a new blue emblem to replace the brown one. The new version will include the county seal, the sheriff's six-point star, and the words "Sheriff Chester County" embroidered in gold thread across the top. "New patch, new uniforms, new sheriff," Spigarelli said. Chester County Sheriff Carolyn B. Welsh said the new patch is easily identifiable, and its contours reflect the lines of the uniform.
