Wing debris “with certainty” from MH370

Piece of aircraft wing finally formally identified
A French prosecutor says that the piece of aircraft wing discovered on the shores of Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean has formally been identified as being from Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
The wing part, known as a flaperon, was found on the French-governed island on July 29. Malaysian authorities had already said it came from the missing Boeing 777, pointing to paint and maintenance-record matches.’
French investigators had been more cautious. But now technicians from Airbus, which made the part for Boeing, have formally identified one of three numbers found inside the flaperon as matching MH370.
“It is therefore possible to confirm with certainty that the flaperon found on Reunion island on July 29, 2015 corresponds to the one from flight MH370,” the prosecutor said in a statement.
The Malaysia Airlines flight vanished in March 2014 with 239 people on board. Investigators are no closer to solving the mystery of what caused the plane to crash.
