Debris is Malaysia Airlines MH370 Boeing 777's flaperon: Test confirms crash

KUALA LUMPUR: The examination of the debris found last week on a beach on the French island La Reunion, near Madagascar, by both French and Malaysian technical experts as well as representatives of the Boeing company, has confirmed that it is a flaperon of Boeing 777 of MH370 that went missing last year. It had been flown to the French defence lab in the city of Toulouse for examination. (What is a FLAPERON?)

The examination indicates that the plane crashed but could not find out the cause of the crash.

"We now have physical evidence that, as I announced on 24th March last year, flight MH370 tragically ended in the southern Indian Ocean," Prime Minister Najib Razak told reporters late on Wednesday after the tests.

Therefore, Najib said, "I would like to assure all those affected by this tragedy that the Government of Malaysia is committed to do everything within our means to find out the truth of what happened."

Although, Najib's announcement answers one persistent question of the families of the 239 passengers and crew who were aboard the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 aircraft that disappeared on March 8, 2014, what happened to their kin and where the plane disappeared.(SEE: Complex Ocean Currents Carry Potential Debris From Missing MH370 Flight to Reunion Island)

How the plane on flight route Kuala Lumpur-Beijing veered to opposite direction into Indian Ocean still remains a mystery in the history of civil avaition.

The relatives of the ill-fated flight have all along been accusing the Malaysian Government of possible cover-up.

"Today, 515 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 Island is indeed from MH370," Najib said. (SEE a demo on Facebook: HOW a Flaperon functions)
