Recovered Debris 'Almost Certainly' from MH370

ATSB confirmed two parts found on the Mozambique coast are a segment from a Boeing 777 flap track fairing and a horizontal stabilizer panel segment, and both are "almost certainly from the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 aircraft, registered 9M-MRO," which is the designation of the MH370 aircraft.

Two pieces of debris recently recovered on the coast of Mozambique "almost certainly" came from the missing MH370 jetliner, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau reported April 19. This agency has been engaged in a prolonged search for the missing Malaysia Airlines aircraft in a section of the southern Indian Ocean, after the Malaysian government requested its help in identifying the items.

The Boeing 777-200ER vanished with 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board on March 8, 2014, while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. A flaperon that washed up on Reunion Island in July 2015 was confirmed by Malaysia's prime minister as having come from it.

The two items were found Dec. 27, 2015, and Feb. 27, 2016, about 130 miles apart on the Mozambique coast and were delivered to civil aviation authorities in Mozambique and South Africa in early March. They were then sent to ATSB for examination.

ATSB confirmed the first part is a segment from a Boeing 777 flap track fairing and the second part is a horizontal stabilizer panel segment. According to ATSB, both are "almost certainly from the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 aircraft, registered 9M-MRO," which is the designation of the MH370 aircraft.
