WASHINGTON, July 30. /TASS/. Malaysia has dispatched a team of experts to the French Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean where debris from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 were possibly discovered, Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said on Wednesday during his working visit to the United States. The airliner went missing last March.
The US aviation authorities who have studied the photos of the wing fragment found on the coast of Reunion Island earlier said it could be from the missing Malaysian airliner. Experts believe that the washed-up debris is a drooped aileron used on this type of aircraft.
MH370 bound for Beijing vanished from radar screens shortly after taking off from Kuala Lumpur overnight on March 8, 2014. No trace has been found of the plane. In late January, the Malaysian authorities said it had crashed an all 239 passengers on board had been killed.
