You know, I'm done with this.
Just now that I have posted enough visual proof to disprove your claims? How coincidental.
There are ways to identify the flaperon, they are being used. It's that simple.
I still see no proof of actuators in the debri piece though.
The drawing clearly shows the actuator fitting—the motor that moves the flap up and down—which Tytelman says perfectly matches the pictures. That would mean the wing came from a Boeing 777, and because exactly one Boeing 777 has ever been lost at sea…
By god you're right, and Zaph explained it! And then explained it when you posted another picture! But dammit that's just not good enough!
By the way I noticed you completely ignored my comment about finding a number of articles that reference what you're looking for.
get the thread back to where it should be as opposed to getting dragged along for some personal vendetta.
I searched and found any number of articles. Perhaps you should actually search this time instead of demanding others do it for you. Google is pretty easy to use, and you can find articles, discussion boards, and websites that all make reference to the actuators in flaperons. It almost made me say "how convenient" again. That's how easy it was.
