REUNION (Indian Ocean), July 30 – French aviation expert believes he may have found the debris off the coast of Reunion island, a French department east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean, is being examined to see if it related to the 2014 disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, said Adjutant Christian Retournat, a member of the French Air Force in Reunion. He said that there was much discussion over a code part of the wreckage: BB670.
The Telegraph of UK reported early today reported that 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. The man sent Tytelman a series of photos showing wreckage of a plane, which the Frenchman said could possibly be the missing jet, the newspaper said. Tytelman told The Telegraph: “And we all think it is likely that the wing is that of a Boeing 777 — the same plane as MH370.
The debris was discovered on Reunion Island a small isle in the Indian Ocean – and investigators are now analysing the findings. From photos, experts believe the parts have come from a plane of a similar size to the Boeing 777 that disappeared in March last year. The pictures show police looking over two parts of what could be the wing of the missing jet.
The airline debris found on Reunion Island was discovered on the coast of St. Andrew by trail maintenance workers. Local reports have suggested the debris had been in the water for some time and is being examined to determine its origin.
It is way too soon to say whether or not it is MH370. We just found the debris this morning in the coast of Saint Andre,” Retournat said Wednesday. The debris what appears to be a flap has been taken to the island, he said. MH370 disappeared after taking off from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on March 8, 2014, bound for Beijing.
