Malaysian PM Najib Razak has just confirmed that the missing Malaysian airlines flight MH370 has finally been found. Last week, a piece of debris was found on Reunion Island near Madagascar. The piece of debris was sent to forensic experts in France who have just confirmed that the piece of debris is indeed from the missing MH370 flight.
MH370 was carrying 239 passengers onboard when it veered off course on its flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
This picture shows the exact place where this piece from the ill-fated airplane was found. Speaking to the media, Mr Razak said that the “the burden and uncertainty faced by the families” in the 515 days since the aircraft disappeared had been “unspeakable”.
“We now have physical evidence that flight MH370 tragically ended in the southern Indian Ocean,” he added.
This piece of debris is actually the flaperon of the airplane. For those of you who don’t know what a flaperon is, see this picture:
Investigators are now using drift analysis(pictured below) to find the rest of the plane and we hope that the rest of the plane is also found so that the victims’ families can finally put their uncertainty and misery to rest.
