An emergency slide fell off a Delta plane Friday morning while it was in the air, forcing the Los Angeles flight to return to JFK Airport, sources told The Post.

The bizarre accident triggered an emergency alarm around 8:30 a.m. aboard Flight 520, which had taken off from Queens airport an hour earlier, sources said.

The crew – who had reported a vibration, according to the FAA – had no choice but to return to JFK, on ​​runway 22L, according to the sources.

Police were still searching for the missing parachute early Friday afternoon and sources said it was believed to be in Jamaica Bay.

No injuries have been reported.

The plane is a Boeing 767, which took off from JFK for Los Angeles International Airport just before 11 a.m., according to FlightAware.

A Port Authority spokeswoman said there is “an ongoing investigation into what occurred.”

The airline did not immediately respond to a request for information.

This is a development story. Check back for updates.
