The discovery of a plane wing flotsam added insult to injury. Instead of helping solved the mysterious whereabouts of the missing Flight 370, it only injects chaos and confusion. Authorities and investigators handling the analysis of the debris were divided over its authenticity whether or not it's a part of the doomed flight, making relatives of victims furious.

Recovery of flotsam debris

Aviation experts thought their 16-month investigation about the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 would be nearing end with the recent recovery of pieces of debris like an airplane wing piece, a suitcase, a Chinese water bottle,and an Indonesian cleaning product from the Island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean. The find was reported by Journalist Julien Delarue as published online in, Aug 1, 2015.

Debris shipped for analysis

The debris were enthusiastically flown to Paris, France and transported to a defence ministry laboratory in Toulouse for analysis.
Boeing experts at the plane's plant are convinced that the airplane wing piece found on the island Aug.1,2015 could be a part of the missing Flight MH370.The analysis was undertaken by the air transport brigade of the French gendarmerie but to preclude fraud the Malaysian government has dispatched knowledgeable personnel to verify and confirmed whether the washed-up debris were parts of MH370.The report said China is following developments closely.
Experts have carefully analized pictures of the wing debris and a serial number found in it belongs to a Boeing 777 component, the source assured.
However concerned US authorities want to see the debris very closely before passing judgment on it in relation to the ill-fated MH370.


According to the Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak, the wing part or flaperon that washed ashore on the French territory last month and sent to France for analysis is from the missing MH370.
Families of those on board Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 have demanded an end to mixed messages in the investigation after authorities in France, the US and Australia stopped short of confirming Malaysia’s claim that a piece of plane wing found on the island of Réunion last week came from the missing jet.
But other authorities French, Americans and Australians involved in the investigation don’t agree with Razak’s assertion. French opposed Malaysian claims of more debris on Reunion; Australians still harbor doubts over authenticity if wing debris is really from MH370.
Transport minister Liow Tiong Lai says more MH370 debris were sent to France for study, but this was denied by French officials who said they’ve received no new objects relative to the search for the missing MH370. He said a Malaysian team had found a window and some aluminium foil, which an aide to the minister later clarified it was a “window material” not a window that was recovered. Liow said. “I cannot confirm that it’s from MH370.”

Mixed messages renders relatives of victims furious

The claims and counter-claims made relatives of those who boarded the plane furious. They now have spent more than 500 days patiently waiting for the real truth as to what happened to their loved ones.
“Why the hell do you have one confirm and one not?” Sara Weeks, the sister of New Zealander Paul Weeks, who was on board, told Associated Press. “Why not wait and get everybody on the same page so the families don’t need to go through this turmoil?”
Flight MH370 went missing in March last year with 239 people on board. Many of the passengers’ relatives, who have waited nearly 17 months for tangible evidence, said they were fed up with the mixed messages.
“France is being cautious about it, but Malaysia is desperate to put an end to this case and run away from all responsibilities,” said Dai Shuqin, the sister of one of the passengers, was among about a dozen Chinese relatives who held a demonstration outside the Malaysia Airlines offices in Beijing.

The question must surely be - if the piece is not from MH370, where is it from? How many identical planes have been lost in same piece of sea?

It is so sad that this tragic incident has been unresolved for so long, and no one knows when or if the mystery will ever be solved.

Frankly its not a controversy now, but the plane did crash in the Indian Ocean. How it crashed will always remain a mystery
