Second piece of plane debris found on Reunion

Another part of an airplane, possibly belonging to the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, has been discovered on the island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean.

The first piece of debris, a flaperon, was discovered on Wednesday and has been transported to France for inspection and analysis.

The second piece has been reported to have writing, and possibly illustration, on it, which could be highly relevant to the investigators.


Volunteers have been searching Reunion’s beaches for further debris.

The flaperon has been identified as belonging to a Boeing 777, the same model as the MH370 flight, according to Malaysian officials.

The plane vanished in March 2014 on its trip from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing and authorities suspect it may have plummeted into the Indian Ocean. These pieces of debris are the first possible evidence of such a crash.
