Reunion Island plane debris investigated for MH370 link

Malaysia has sent a team to the French island of Reunion, in the western Indian Ocean, to investigate whether wreckage found there could be from the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 plane which disappeared last year.
Malaysia Airlines said in a statement on Thursday that it was "too premature for the airline to speculate the origin of the flaperon" found washed up on Reunion Island, Aljazeera reports.                                     
"With regards to the reports of the discovery of an aircraft flaperon at Reunion Island, Malaysia Airlines is working with the relevant authorities to confirm the matter," the statement said.
No trace has been found of MH370, which disappeared in March last year carrying 239 passengers and crew from Kuala Lumpur, bound for Beijing, in what has become one of the greatest mysteries in aviation history. Most of the passengers were Chinese.
Search efforts for the Boeing 777, led by Australia, have focused on a broad expanse of the southern Indian Ocean off Australia.


  1. Sad and the mystery continues. Hope the families get to find closure soon.

  2. I pray they find the location soon
