AFTER two years of mystery and many false alarms there has now been identification of two pieces of the missing Malaysian flight MH370, including debris found by Wartburg teenager, Liam Lotter, on a beach in Mozambique while on holiday in December.
Flight MH370 disappeared on 8 March, 2014, less than an hour after it took off from Kuala Lumpur with 239 people aboard.
This piece of debris, plus another found in Mozambique, was sent to Australia to be examined and analysed by international experts from the Malaysian MH370 safety and investigation team, Australian transport safety bureau, Department of Aviation Malaysia and Boeing.
It was confirmed that the construction conformed to the specifications of a Boeing 777 and the paint and stencilling matched those used by Malaysia Airlines. A third piece found on a beach near Mossel Bay is also being examined.
Malaysian Minister of Transport expressed his appreciation to Liam, and the other two who had found debris for “highlighting their discovery to the investigation team”.
