Has anybody suggested planted evidence yet?






"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."***


So the police on some far flung remote island are experts now and can call it straight away how long it's been in the water?
You'd expect it would show signs of rust or corrosion....after all, it's been floating around in salt water for nearly 18 month.

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.


So, a man who living on the Island contact directly a former military pilot and specialist in aviation security and NOT the official authorities (Police, coast guard, navy etc...)?

Smell fishy...


So what's so fishy about that? If I discovered a strange piece of debris like this, I would not contact the authorities first, because there would be no reason to, at least not yet. I don't know what this object is, as I have very little aviation knowledge. It looks like it might belong to part of a plane, but it also looks like something that could have come off a boat. So I'd do the same: I'd get a hold of a friend, acquaintance, or someone with more knowledge about planes and boats first and ask them if they knew what it was, and then go from there.

Seeing how many former military pilots also have extensive experience with civillian aircraft, and even boats in the case of navy. So, like, it would be pretty logical to get their opinion first.

If it's not from a 777, it's from a 777 class aircraft. A component that size came from a big aircraft. By process of elimination it has to be from a Triple.


Ok, so the next question would be, if this is indeed either a 777 or close relative part, then the next question would be, how many 777 or related planes have gone missing in this region over say...the past 10 years?

If none, than it looks like we might have solved a year old mystery.

Edit to add: I was doing a little searching, and discovered that there has only been like 4 serious 777 accidents, and only one of them unaccounted for: this one. So if it's indeed a 777 part, it can only be from 370.

No links yet, but there are a few sources on Twitter saying that a damaged suitcase just washed up on the same island...

Doesn't need to be from a B777 gone missing. It's possible it's from a decommissioned plane that had parts sold and gone AWOL in a shipping mishap.

I'm not sure how much rust would be on the flaperon, I assumed it's mostly made of carbon fibre but ye olde Zaphod would know a bit more.

Uh-huh. And how many decommissioned 777s have been sold for parts and gone AWOL in "shipping mishaps" in recent memory?

I read this morning that they judge the time in the water on the barnical growth.

Agreed. It's not like 777s get chopped up and sold off routinely. Something like only 1300 of them have been made, dunno how many remain in service.

Hey man, I was just throwing out another possibility into the mix.



Another possibility is that the flaperon is from a retired 777 that has been broken up and had its parts sold.
A third possibility being flagged is this: Flaperon components like the one found on La Reunion are manufactured in a factory run by Hindustan Aeronauticals in Bangalore, southern India. Could the wreckage be a factory reject sent for recycling that found its way into the ocean from India’s coast?

and I do realise it's newscorp lol. I am having a looksee of the internets to find more about it.

I realise you were just throwing it out there, but still, it's a pretty ridiculous "theory".

There have been retiring/decomissioning of these planes. A quick search online will show you that.

Well!

You want my personal theory? I've had it since day one!

I have just come across some old news about China Southern Airlines decommissioning 4/6 of its b777-200ers. Now, they were a shareflight (I think thats the term, I forget what they call them these days) with MH370.

There are registration numbers, just trying to see if one was B2060 or.. well... match up with the number thats been floating around (ha!) B370 I think it was. Do you or anyone have the link or a pic of the supposed number on the debris found?

So far I got B-2055, B-2056, B-2057 and B-2058, but there's another 2 CSA b777s I am trying to look up. Going by the sequence one should be the B2060...

Look, I know it's a long shot and heading wayyyyy into the tin foil hat area....

Sure, but we know a 777 crashed, we don't know about any 777 parts being lost in a shipping mishap.

Examination of the flaperon will render the issue moot. It should be relatively easy to identify what plane this wreckage is from.

As long as you realize that lol. It's when people don't realize how far into the tin foil hat zone they've gone that I start to worry. It's a slippery slope.

No, I don't have any links or information regarding any numbers on what was found. I'm sure someone here does, though. Good luck!

Welcome IAmSpock!



this is true but would we really hear if a plane part went missing in a shipping mishap? I don't really know to be honest. But, it's just something else to think about and you are right, further examination should prove conclusive it's from a crashed plane.

b-2060 still in active service.

Alright, I'll put this hat over here...

Maybe he thought he'd get recognition if he contacted him first. There are several reasons to do it that way that aren't nefarious.


What I find an absurd coincidence (and I don't believe in coincidences) is that a man on a remote Island in the middle of the Indian Ocean know a so skilled aviation expert and a former military pilot who now specialises in aviation security.
What else?

However, if that debris belong to the MH370 it's only pure speculation.
