Since this kind of jet was first introduced in 1994, only five of them (including the MH370) have destructed by accident. MH370 is the only one to have been lost over water. The other four planes have been found and accounted for. Those working on the case say they “have a high degree of confidence” that they’ve made a breakthrough.
With only a handful of the Boeing 777 in existence, experts have made the connection that their discovery on La Reunion has a high probability of belonging to the doomed MH370. Regardless of the excitement, precaution is still being taken. “It could take today or longer than that for us to ascertain that,” Boeing source told NBC that they believe the piece of debris is from a Boeing 777.
And during a meeting at the United Nations, Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said that he has sent a team to verify the identity of the plane wreckage. “Whatever wreckage found needs to be further verified before we can ever confirm that it is belonged to MH370,” he explained.
The piece was found by people cleaning up the shoreline of La Reunion (east of Madagascar), more than 3,800 miles away from the last known location of MH370. Which is also 3,000 miles away from their first started searching, off the coast of Australia. “It was covered in shells,” an eyewitness explained. “So one would say it had been in the water a long time.”
