A 2m-long object, very likely to be a piece from Boeing 777, found on the Indian Ocean Island of Reunion will be sent to southern French city of Toulouse for air accident investigations (the BEA). It is assumed that it can be a part of the missing Malaysian Airlines flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March 2014. There were 239 passengers and crew on board the plane when it went missing.
The searchers of the debris of the missing plane told the BBC that the location of the find was “consistent with drift analysis of where we think debris might have turned up”.
The identity of the object (considered to be flaperon of a plane) can be established with the data tag and serial number or through manufacturer’s stamp.
It is indeed a significant development in tracing the missing MH370.
