Officials noticed the panel was missing from the Boeing 747, one of two jetliners used by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for foreign trips, after it flew from Tokyo to its base on the northern island of Hokkaido.

A spokesman for the Japan Air Self Defence Force (ASDF) said the part, measuring 15in by 10in has not been found. 

It is believed to be an access panel near the pylon connecting one of the engines to the right wing.

The ASDF spokesman said the air force would conduct an urgent investigation to determine why the panel had fallen off Mr Abe’s plane.

The PM was travelling with government officials and Japanese business representatives on a six-day trip to Eastern Europe including stops in Estonia, Lithuania, Serbia and Romania.
