MH370, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people onboard – 227 passengers and 12 crew members – vanished on March 8, 2014, the first and the only Boeing 777 to have disappeared over an ocean.

The wreckage found on Reunion resembles a flaperon – a moving part of the wing surface – from a Boeing 777. A battered suitcase has also been found. It is believed that ocean currents may have carried the wreckage to Reunion.

 

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said the findings will be shipped by French authorities to Toulouse for investigation, The Telegraph reported.

Australian Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss said there was a number – BB670 – on the wreckage that may help investigators in the identification process. According to a CNN report, he said it wasn’t a serial or registration number but could be a maintenance number.
