A chrome color grille about 2.5 feet wide and 6" tall flew off the front of our 1996 F150 Ford van while we were driving at highway speed. I noticed other similar Ford vans that have also lost the same front grill part. We were going 55 mph down a 2 lane highway and a large truck was going the other way. The gust of air from the passing truck was sufficient to tear off the grill part and cause it to fly over the top of our van.
