MH370: “Plane Window” Washes Up On Reunion Island

in Latest

A plastic frame which may be a plane window has washed up on Reunion Island, as researchers look for parts of missing flight MH370.

The missing part was discovered by a French tourist called Bruno, who was jogging along St Denis beach on Tuesday.

It was found within a few hundred metres of other pieces of debris which some believe may be traced back to the Malaysian Airlines flight which vanished in March last year.

Local authorities have not confirmed whether the plastic object is part of the missing plane.

Meanwhile in Paris investigators have confirmed the piece of wing that washed up on the beach at Reunion is from a Boeing 777- the same model as MH370.

It is the only missing flight of that model in the world.

Malaysia’s Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai tweeted: ‘The flaperon is officially identified as being part of a Boeing 777. This is verified by French authorities together with manufacturer Boeing.

‘If more debris can be found it will aid the experts in the substantive analysis of what happened to the missing plane MH370.’

Beach cleaner, Nicolas Ferrier, told the Sunday telegraph that he burned a plane seat and suitcase after mistaking them for rubbish.

He said he was on his daily patrol of La Reunion in May, picking up debris from the beach, when he spotted what he thought looked like a bus seat.

He told the Sunday Telegraph: ‘It wasn’t until Wednesday that it hit me what it could have been. It was probably part of that plane.’

‘It might resemble the back of a plane window or rather the part where the masks fall but right now I can’t tell you anything,’ said National Police Brigadier Gisele Cadar.
