The aircraft debris which washed up on the French island of Reunion last week is from Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370. Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak (pic) announced at a special press conference early Thursday that the joint France-Malaysia investigations had confirmed the aircraft flaperon found on the island as originating from the aircraft.
“Today, 515 days since the plane disappeared, it is with a heavy heart that I must tell you that an international team of experts have conclusively confirmed that the aircraft debris found on Reunion Island is indeed from MH370.
We now have physical evidence that, as I announced on 24th March last year, flight MH370 tragically ended in the southern Indian Ocean,” he said at the Putra World Trade Centre.
MH370, with 239 people on board, disappeared from radar during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014.
The aircraft is believed to have ended its journey in the southern Indian Ocean.
