Think this just hit the wire. Looks like people on Reunion Island may have found a flaperon (flap) and it may be from a 777 aircraft. I don't think anything is confirmed yet but "sources" are saying local authorities believe it be a match for aircraft type.

The island is located off the east coast of Madagascar. Just a wee bit outside the search area....

Hopefully it is, and the families can start to get some closure

***A French aviation expert believes he may have found the wreckage of MH370 – the Malaysia Airlines flight which disappeared off the coast of Malaysia in March 2014.

Xavier Tytelman, a former military pilot who now specialises in aviation security, was contacted on Wednesday morning by a man living on the island of Reunion, in the Indian Ocean. The man sent Mr Tytelman a series of photos showing wreckage of a plane, which the Frenchman said could possibly be the missing jet.

"I've been studying hundreds of photos and speaking to colleagues," Mr Tytelman told The Telegraph. "And we all think it is likely that the wing is that of a Boeing 777 – the same plane as MH370.

"Police in Reunion examining the wreckage say that it looks like it's been in the water for around a year, which again would fit with MH370. We can't say for certainty, but we do think there is a chance that this is it."***

tragic but here's hoping for closure. Shamrock thnx for thread

Complicated currents in the Indian Ocean, but I can see how debris would end up there.

I had a feeling it went west.. If any of you remember that Halon sphere found on a beach in the Maldives Islands? it looked new at the time too. (They said it was an old mine, which is was NOT).

Here is that thread.

There were reports of a low flying aircraft before this was found too.

Very interesting if this is from the MH triple 7.
So if it crashed, would the ocean currents take it in the direction of Reunion Island?

Bittersweet.

I just saw Sara Bajec (sp?), the lady who lost her partner that worked for IBM, on CNN last week. She still held out hope that her loved one was alive somewhere...so sad.

Taking this long it does sound like it was moved by currents. That map does seem to show it could have traveled a long way by water.

Looks like IDing the piece to a 777 would be big and almost certainly tie it to the flight.

Apparently there is a reference number on it, BB670. Not sure if that can be traced, need the experts here for answers

Will we ever know what actually happened?
Why, or how it went down probably not?
But we can bring closure, to the families.
We will know for sure it crashed,
and know that the plane is not sitting somewhere
being loaded with bombs ready to fly into the Eiffel tower or somewhere

Ocean currents are wild its been a year since this debris has had to sail around the ocean,
caught in eddies, thrown in different currents.. I doubt this is some big conspiracy
other then the pilot was on a suicide dive.

Where the hell is Zaph??

I would think (but am not at all an aviation expert) that any large parts would have a serial number that can be traced from fabrication to installation on an aircraft. That could be traced...maybe?

Has anybody suggested planted evidence yet?

Sorry about the carbon copy Sham.

Holy crap this is some big news.
I'm just not sure a flaperon would even float.
And with so many other wrecks out there will
we get pos. I.D. ? I'm sure Zaph will know.

I just felt bad I didn't see yours first!

Was wondering the same..


And yes, there is supposed to be serial numbers on those parts. But there is no saying that this piece didn't follow the current. That plane could still be anywhere.

Auh! Not everything is a conspiracy Xue.
I just wanted to say that for once.

Yeah, Zaph or Samm might be able to give some more info, especially if that reference number BB670 has any links

No worries. You were probably composing yours right after mine went up.

I honestly have no idea what parts float and what won't on an airframe. Would they even float this long? How long has this piece been sitting on the island I have to wonder.

If this piece turns out to be from that airframe then holy crap, they only have literally an entire ocean to search now. This may not even bring any closure at all, as people could wind up saying "if the wreckage made it to land, people could have!" or something.

I hope this is it, but still raises questions as to why it is found so far off its original course.

I think it's the guardian or telegraph is running a headline that says the flaperon IS from 370. Everybody else is saying might be. The "last updated" times are all over the place though so I don't know if it's sloppy journalism or somebody got confirmation or what.

News head lines are quite often sensationalized. I think the internet has allowed it to become common place.
