WASHINGTON (AP) — A U.S. official says air safety investigators have a "high degree of confidence" that a photo of aircraft debris found in the Indian Ocean is of a wing component unique to the Boeing 777, the same model as the Malaysia Airlines plane that disappeared last year.
The official says investigators — including a Boeing air safety investigator — have identified the component as a "flaperon" from the trailing edge of a 777 wing.
A French official close to the investigation confirmed Wednesday that French law enforcement is on site to examine a piece of airplane wing found on the French island of Reunion, in the western Indian Ocean.
The U.S. and French officials spoke on condition that they not be named because they aren't authorized to speak publicly.

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?
MAS370 never existed
I had a remote viewing of this a week before it happened.

well it could be left overs from Ethiopian Airlines Flight 961.
It could be planted.. what better way to hide a state sponsored hijacking by throwing a few components out the back of a cargo plane and waiting for them to be discovered
then again it could be MH370.
either way, the case will never be solved
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.
