DEBRIS, washed up on the shores of Mozambique could be that of missing Malaysian Airlines flight, MH370. 

The three foot debris is being sent to Australia for a detailed analysis.  The fragment was first reported by American news channel NBC, which initially said that it could be part of the aircraft’s tail known as a horizontal stabiliser.

Transport Minister in Malaysia, Liow Tiong Lai said that initial signs suggest there is a “high possibility” it came from the same type of plane as MH370, a Boeing 777.

Oceanic drifts could have swept the debris all the way to Mozambique, confirmed Australia´s Transport Minister Darren Chester. 

He went on to say: “The debris is to be transferred to Australia where it will be examined by officials from Australia and Malaysia, as well as international specialists.” 

The now famous aeroplane, MH370 went missing on March 8, 2014, travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. There were a total of 239 passengers and crew aboard.

One other piece of the plane, a fragment of the wing, was found last July in the Indian Ocean which was the only confirmed piece of debris recovered during a two year investigation. 

Experts believe the plane flew sharply off course and crashed in the southern region of the Indian Ocean.
