Missing Malaysia Airlines

Has missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 been discovered? Wreckage found on French Indian Ocean island of La Reunion

A piece of wreckage washed up on a beach in the Indian Ocean could be part of the doomed Malaysian Airlines jet MH370 which vanished in 2014, it has emerged.

The two-metre-long piece of wreckage, which seemed to be part of a wing, was found by people cleaning up a beach.

One witness said: ‘It was covered in shells, so one would say it had been in the water a long time.’

    If it were covered in shells it more likely is a WWII relic.

    • Possibly so.

    • Sea life will almost immediately attach itself to whatever sinks to the bottom. It is possible that this item is from a more recently sunk craft.

    I say a small private plane by looking that the wing.

    • It does seem small.

      It looks like either a small plane wing or a flap from a larger plane. As for the shells they can attach in a few months.

      The people who found it say there is a tag just inside that says BB-670. That would make it a 1980’s beech 200 as that is the serial number assigned to one. It’s currently flying with tail number N17VA. Which is registered as a corporate jet owned by C S & A Aircraft Llc in Franklin TN, USA.

        But then “BB-67” would have been USS Montana, which was never built.

      Looks to me to be to small and to heavily built to be a wing from a small aircraft. My call would be a piece of a wing flap from a heavy aircraft.
