Flight MH370 Update
The debris, a piece of horizontal stabilizer skin from a Boeing 777, was discovered over the weekend, a U.S. official told CNN. It is currently on its way to Malaysia, where it will be examined so that officials can confirm whether or not it belongs to the missing Malaysia Airlines plane.
Since no other Boeing 777 has gone missing as of late, according to an aviation source, it is more than likely that the piece of wreckage is from MH370.
Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 went missing March 8, 2014 en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur with 239 people on board. In the two years since the plane inexplicably went off the radar, officials have been unable to recover the wreckage. The largest piece of the plane that has been recovered was the flaperon, which was found last year.
By finding and identifying the flaperon as a part of MH370, authorities were able to give closure to the families of the 239 people who perished aboard the ill-fated flight that took off on March 8, 2014.
The search for the bulk of the plane is ongoing. It is believed that the aircraft is somewhere at the bottom of the Indian Ocean off the coast of western Australian.
