Debris spotted could be part of missing Malaysian plane
PETALING JAYA CITY, Malayasia-CNN has reported that a piece of wreckage from a Boeing 777 has been found in the Mozambique coast, adding that it might be from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 plane.
The only other confirmed MH370 debris is that of a flaperon from the main wing of the missing 777 which was recovered from the shores of La Reunion island in July a year ago.
A US official close to the investigation told CBS News that the debris is a "fixed leading edge, right hand horizontal stabilizer", which is found in the tail section of a plane.
The airline displayed similar caution Wednesday when it would not confirm that the newly found debris is from MH370.
Military radar continued to track the Boeing 777 as it made a sharp turn to the southwest, crossing back over the Malay Peninsula, and then turned again to head northwest.
Beijing-bound MH370 had vanished an hour after taking off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport on March 8 2014, carrying 239 passengers and crewmembers, including 152 Chinese citizens.
He said the part is being transported to Malaysia.
Local ecological association members and volunteers stand behind debris found on 11 August 2015 in the eastern part of Sainte-Suzanne, on France's Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean.
Investigators believe the plane rerouted to the southern Indian Ocean, where it crashed.
The debris is on its way to Malaysia for further examination. One piece of debris was found. Please see our terms of service for more information.
The aircraft's transponder, which identifies the plane and relays details like altitude and speed to controllers, stopped transmitting and Flight MH370 seemingly disappeared without a trace.
Aviation-law specialists say are they likely to result in payouts of possibly hundreds of millions of dollars.
