Incident: Parts fell off from wing on JL009 from Chicago to Narita

When it rains, it pours. Japan Airlines flight 009 from Chicago to Narita has a minor incident today. After JL009 landed at NRT today, some parts of the wing fell off and the runway has to be closed as a result. The runway has already reopened after the parts were found. The aircraft is a 777-300ER. JAL uses its latest 777-300ERs on this route and the oldest one is 1.5 years one. And they are falling apart already!?
