Confirmed? The debris that officials discovered on Reunion Island reportedly matches the same part that would be found on a Boeing 777. This could possibly mean that the wreckage came from the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370!
Investigators have been all over the piece of debris that washed up on Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean. They think that it came from the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370! Now, sources close to the investigation say that the piece matches the kind found on a Boeing 777, the same type of airplane that went missing in 2014!
Boeing officials are “confident” that the debris discovered on July 29 came from a Boeing 777, a source tells CNN. The aviation experts have reportedly analyzed photos of the debris. These experts reportedly believe the wing-flap that washed up on the Island’s shore matches the schematic drawings for the same model of plane as MH370.
Though they’re confident that this is part of a Boeing 777, officials won’t be absolutely certain until they see the debris up close, the source told CNN. However, after a year of searching, this is the biggest break in the case of the missing flight! It might even lead to the discovery of what happened to the missing Malaysian flight!
Australian Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss said that the number on the debris — BB670 — might help investigators identify the part. It’s not a serial or registration number, but it’s something. The piece is reportedly on its way to France to be tested further, reports the BBC. Hopefully, this sheds some light on this huge mystery.
In addition to the debris, a piece of luggage was reportedly found as well. A torn-up bag was discovered near the site where the six-foot-long wing flap washed up. While authorities haven’t yet confirmed that this was luggage that belonged to one of the 239 passengers on board of MH370, it’s another possible clue in locating the vanished airplane.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is this piece part of the missing airplane?
