It has been more than two years since Malaysia Airlines flight 370 went missing with 239 passengers and now, investigators have confirmed that a large piece of aircraft debris that washed up on an African beach is from the same aircraft.

An aircraft wing flap was found on the island of Pemba off Tanzania and experts from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau said the part numbers and identification stamps make it certain that the flap was from the Boeing 777 that disappeared in March 2014 with 239 people on board, reports ABC News.

“Further examination of the debris will continue in hopes that evidence may be uncovered which may provide new insight into the circumstances surrounding flight MH370,” a Malaysian Transport Ministry statement said.

Authorities had earlier said the piece of debris was “highly likely” to have come from MH370 but they now have confirmed its origin.

This is not the only piece that has been found. Other pieces of the plane have washed up more than 2,000 kilometres from Pemba, on Reunion Island, off Madagascar, as well as in South Africa.

Other possible MH370 debris have been handed to Australian officials on Monday by American amateur investigator, Blaine Gibson, who said that several pieces were blackened by flames, raising the prospect of a flash fire onboard.

Authorities are still looking for the plane in the depths of the Indian Ocean but have said that without new evidence this search will finish around the end of this year.

The Australian-led operation is scouring the seafloor within a remote 120,000-square-kilometre belt of the Indian Ocean where authorities believe the passenger jet went down.

  1. I have always believed the loss of MH370 less likely suicide/murder (or anything conspiratorial) than accidental. If – and it remains no more than a possibility at the moment – there was an on-board fire or even a non-catastrophic hull failure, the crew may have fought against reducing consciousness and attempted to reprogram flight computer to return to KL. Unfortunately, through their anoxic state, they were unable to complete a relatively complicated task and this is what sent the aeroplane on its final course. This is only conjectural, of course, and will not bring back the 239 lost souls, but negates the conspiracy theories that must be so harmful to relatives and friends of those who died.

  2. Hmmm……..milions’ $ wasted, of money which came from Aussie Taxpayers’, to what purpose?
    To prove an aircraft was downed into water? What a load of bs.

    Has anybody bothered to check that other pieces’ of aircraft wreckage, could’ve come from OTHER aircraft?
    Authorities’ seem to be blindsided, saying that ‘anything’ looking like the part of a plane ‘is definitely from MH370′.

    With the number of Airlines’ flying along the African East Coast, chances are aircraft parts’ ‘fall off’ in flight. Those Airlines’ don’t exactly have ‘magnificent’ safety records, & they sure as hell wouldn’t be reporting such losses to any statuary authority. Just get it ‘fixed’ on the qt!

    IMHO, aircraft was flown, ‘under th radar’, to an undisclosed airfield, repainted, camouflaged, & hidden.

    Time only, will tell what ACTUALLY happened, but it could be a very l o n g wait………..

    • If you looked at some of the parts found, and then tried to equate that with your stupid statement, even someone with your diminished mental capacity should be able to tell that if it “fell off in flight” the plane wouldn’t have been able to continue flying, let alone land! They’d be searching for more than one plane then!

      • Thanks Ted. Reasoned opinions to the fore.

      • Your rude, very ignorant, & abusive reply is totally unwarranted.

        It’s not unusual for part(s) of aircraft to fall off.
        This was the downfall of the Concorde, taking-off from Paris.
        It’s happened numerous times’, involving numerous parts’, & aircraft have still had the ability to fly.

  3. Vannus,
    Aircraft parts have identity numbers on them, that allows them to be identified as belonging to particular aircraft. Read the original post.
