Debris from Missing MH370 Flight

Not sure if this has already been posted? If so, sorry!

The wreckage was found washed up on the island of La Reunion, east of Madagascar earlier today
The two-metre-long object has been secured and will be examined by air crash investigators within hours
Experts will determine whether the wreckage is from MH370 by comparing serial numbers with the missing jet
Witnesses said the object appears to have been in the ocean for some time as it was 'covered in shells'

Airline expert Xavier Tytelman said the wreckage looked like it came from a Boeing 777, the same model as the missing MH370

They don't know it from MH370 yet.

Re: Debris from Missing MH370 Flight ?

Added a question mark to the title. Hope to remove it soon.
At first glance, this sounds nonsensical and counter intuitive but many details suggest that they really found it. What a relief it would be to the relatives of the victims....

Re: Debris from Missing MH370 Flight ?

I looked at the current in the area - It flows straight from the east parallel to the equator - it should be interesting how they find the rest based on math and physics.

Re: Debris from Missing MH370 Flight ?

Wasn't the hypothesized crash zone somewhere in the Indian ocean anyways?

As aircraft and ships continued to search for debris which might be that of the missing flight MH370 on Friday a Malaysian woman on a flight across the Indian Ocean claimed to have seen an aircraft in the water near the Andaman Islands on the day the jet disappeared.

The Kuala Lumpur wife was so convinced about what she saw at 2.30pm on March 8, several hours after MH370 vanished, that she filed an official report with police that very day - a full five days before the search for the plane was expanded to the area around the Andaman Islands.

News of her apparent sighting came as a blank was drawn after two days of searching in the Indian Ocean for two objects deemed by experts as possibly being from the missing plane.

The global hunt for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight has shifted to a tiny island in the Maldives, where residents spotted a “low flying jumbo jet” hours after the aircraft disappeared.

Several witnesses in Dhaalu Atoll saw a plane heading south that bore the red stripe and white background of Malaysia Airlines planes.

The sightings, reported by a local news outlet, would have occurred more than seven hours after the plane, carrying 12 crew and 227 mainly

Chinese passengers, lost contact with air traffic control and took its sudden westward turn during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in the early hours of Saturday March 8.

Though authorities are yet to confirm the sighting, the plane’s pilot, Captain Zaharie Shah, is believed to have practised landing at Male International Airport in the Maldives on a three-screen flight simulator at his home. The machine has been seized by police.

A report in a Malay language newspaper, Berita Harian, claimed Capt Zaharie also practised at three airports in India and Sri Lanka and a runway at the US military base on Diego Garcia.

Maybe one of two is right and parts of the wreckage floated south-west

Re: Debris from Missing MH370 Flight ?


Circled is the part of the Malaysian Airlines plane that officials believe has washed up on the Reunion Island, east of Madagascar.

Air crash investigators have 'a high degree of confidence' that a piece of wreckage found on the Indian Ocean island of La Reunion is from a Boeing 777 - the same model as the doomed MH370 which disappeared in March 2014.

Since the Boeing 777 was introduced in 1994, there have been five incidents - including MH370 - which have led to the destruction of the aircraft. MH370 is the only aircraft of its type which has vanished over the sea.

Investigators will need to examine closely the wreckage to link it to MH370, but it was the only aircraft of its type lost over water.

A suitcase has been found close to the debris;

Australia's deputy PM stated that the debris was stamped with BB670, but according to the latest updates, a mechanic from Air Austral who inspected the debris claimed that it was actually stamped with 657BB;

It's like trying to track down the path of the ball of a pinball: you know that it ended up there, but there's no way to establish with certainty how it ended up there. Plus, we don't know if the debris started floating one week or one year ago: it could have been attached to the rest of the wreckage for months. All we know is the last possible position thanks to the telemetry system onboard

which does NOT shed any light to the mystery: i don't think that all this is enough to help to narrow the search area, however, if positively identified as belonging to MH370, the debris would help engineers to establish whether it crashed at high/low speed, a study on the seashells growing on the wreckage may help biologist to tell us where the wreckage has been in the past. However, all this won't help to narrow the search for FDR and CVR which are the only tools that are needed in order to establish what really happened, in my opinion.
