Remember the missing Malaysian Airlines MH370 aircraft that went missing since March 2014?
Some burnt wreckage of an aircraft have been found in Madagascar and appears to contain “scorched black” marks suggesting possible sudden fire that might have blown up the plane mid-air.
The pieces of debris possibly those under the cockpit floor of a Boeing 777 have been handed over to the Australian search team. Once the origin is confirmed, then the two-year long search may come to an end bringing relief to insurance companies to settle the claims.
Analysts believe that the burn marks indicate a sudden on-board fire or could have occurred when the plane nose-dived hitting the ocean. Joao de Abreu, president of the Mozambique Civil Aviation Authority, showing one of three pieces of debris thought to have come from missing MH370, said the pieces were found by three locals from Sainte Luce, a coastal town in south-east Madagascar.
Blaine Gibson, a Seattle lawyer who has handed over the debris to Australian authorities, said the burnt pieces appeared to be from the cargo rather than from the main cabin. “There are two that have burned and singe marks on them,” he told ABC News.
“If those are found to be from MH370 and if it is discovered that the fire took place before the crash, then this is a real game changer that could help identify what was the cause of the planes demise.”
The Malaysia Airlines aircraft disappeared in March 2014 during a routine flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, carrying 239 passengers and crew.
An underwater search, spanning 46,000 square mile zone off the west coast of Australia has been underway since then to find the debris.
