Re: Debris from Missing MH370 Flight ?

The serial number found on the flaperon should, in theory, rapidly allow investigators to confirm whether the part did originate from a Boeing 777, writes the Guardian’s transport correspondent, Gwyn Topham.

While there is some confusion over the reported number - BB670, according to the Australian deputy prime minister, Warren Truss, but 657BB according to reports from Reunion - the part number appears to match that of the flaperon on the Boeing 777.

The number is normally attached to a larger aeroplane part on a small metallic plate and should register not only the generic part number, but an individual serial number that allows the history of that particular part to be traced. That should tally with the records held by the manufacturer and the airline. Individual parts could have been swapped since original construction, and are labelled to allow aircrafts engineers to track if and when they need maintenance or replacement.

That simple record check means investigators, Malaysian Airlines and Boeing should already be confident whether the numbered part could have come from flight MH370 - if they have been provided with a full and accurate serial number. However, with the history of false starts and confusion in the long and emotive search for the missing airliner, few officials would want to confirm the lead before viewing the physical evidence on Reunion directly, experts say.

David Gleave, an air accident investigator, said: “The serial number information should be fairly easily accessible - but we should be cautious.

“It’s not unknown for very strange things to occur during crash investigations, and you would want to eliminate all possibilities. It’s a big international investigation - and it is possible to buy these parts should you wish to confuse things. You want to be able to track the complete history to establish that exact part came from that plane.”

Gleave added: “A lot of aircraft parts look very similar to other aircraft parts, and these things take time to confirm - given the amount of grief we really must make sure.”

Here's to hoping it is from the missing plane.

Re: Debris from Missing MH370 Flight

UPDATE*

Part number on plane wreckage confirms debris is from Boeing 777, Malaysian official says
Quote:
A part number on a piece of aircraft wreckage found in the Indian Ocean confirms the object is from a Boeing 777, a Malaysian transport official has said.

"From the part number, it is confirmed that it is from a Boeing 777 aircraft. This information is from MAS (Malaysia Airlines). They have informed me," deputy transport minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi said.

The wing component found on the small French island of La Reunion, east of Madagascar, bears the part number 657 BB*, according to photos of the debris.

The two-metre-long piece of wreckage, known as a flaperon, was found by people cleaning up a beach on La Reunion on Wednesday.
Removed the question mark from the title as now we are sure that the debris belongs to MH370, this latest information came straight from the horse's mouth.

Re: Debris from Missing MH370 Flight

pretty sure there will be many more pieces of wreckage and luggage, maybe even bodies washing up in the same area and on the eastern african coast in the coming months...... currents tend to work like that..

Re: Debris from Missing MH370 Flight

I doubt after this time there will be any bodies to wash up..The sea would have scattered the bones all over the place.

Re: Debris from Missing MH370 Flight

What is does prove is that MH370 did fly for 7 hours in the wrong direction. The question now is why?
