More airplane parts have been discovered at Reunion Island: finding MH370 aircraft seems to be closer than ever before now. The transport ministry of Malaysia has announced today, August 6, that more plane parts, including pieces of windows, aluminium materials, and seat cushions, have been spotted. They might possibly belong to the missing aircraft.
The Malaysian authorities announced that pieces of windows, seat cushions and aluminium parts have washed up. The experts who are already working on the flaperon that has recently been discovered will examine the new materials.
The flaperon itself is said to have certainly belonged to MH370; or so said the Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak in a statement. However, other authorities who are assisting in the search and analysis stated that more testing needed to be done before confirming.
“Today, 513 days since the plane disappeared, it is with a very heavy heart that I must tell you that an international team of experts has conclusively confirmed that the aircraft debris found on Reunion is indeed from MH370,” said PM Najib Razak in a televised statement on Thursday morning. “We now have physical evidence that, as I announced on 24th March last year, flight MH370 tragically ended in the southern Indian Ocean.
