MH370 debris found in Mozambique

By on

The debris of the missing flight MH370 were found off the Mozambique coast. It is recently in the custody of Malaysian authorities.

Chances are high that the suspicious debris are possibly from the missing flight MH370. The debris were handed over to Malaysian experts by the Mozambican civil aviation authorities on Monday. The piece was found by an American amateur investigator. The debris that were found on the Mozambique coastline can provide fresh angle into the mystery of the Malaysia Airlines flight that got disappeared in 2014.

As per report by IBN Live, Joao de Abreu, president of Mozambique’s Civil Aviation Institute said “We officially gave the piece to the Malaysian experts this morning.” He added, “If it is revealed that it belongs to MH370, then these experts will come back to Mozambique to launch more extensive searches.” Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said that the authorities will soon verify if it is a part of the missing Flight MH370.

According to The Star, the minister told the reporters at Parliament lobby yesterday ?that is to say that any debris found in that area is tentatively, possibly, from MH370. And it would be verified later on.? The object that is found by the seashore last Thursday measures nearly about 40 by 20 cm.

Astro Awani reported that Liow said that France authorities have not yet taken any decision on whether to allow another piece of debris found on Reunion Island two days ago to be released to the authorities here. Liow also said, “We are waiting for a judge in France to decide. Since the object was found in France’s territory, we have to follow their law.” Liow also mentioned that the decision is supposed to be taken within the next two days. The second aircraft debris which looks like square-shaped grey item with a blue border was discovered by Johny Begue and coincidentally he is the same man who found the flaperon piece of plane debris near the same spot on July 29, 2015. The debris was handed over to the police the very same day. He also saw a wing fragment which has since been identified as part of the missing aircraft.

Begue also mentioned that the debris was the same lightweight “honeycomb” construction as the flaperon piece which he found while cleaning the beach.

Begue told The Star, ?When there?s bad weather, it?s when you should look; when the sea tosses up a lot of stuff.? The flaperon piece that he found seems to be the only piece of debris that could have been identified so far with certainty as having come from the flight.

The report came three days later an American man found suspected MH370 debris in Mozambique, some 2,100km west of Reunion Island. The object has already been sent to Australia before for some expert analysis. MH370 was carrying 239 passengers along with the crew members when it disappeared on March 8, 2014, on an overnight flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
