Debris found in Mozambique definitively from MH370

By Ians

Canberra, April 20: The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) on Wednesday released a Technical Examination Report which has definitively said the debris found in Mozambique originated from lost Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

Australia's Transport Minister Darren Chester said stencilling of key words and numbers fully matched the font used by Malaysia Airlines, and was not the same one used by the Boeing factory when delivering aircraft, Xinhua reported.

Chester said this "link" proved that both pieces, one from the horizontal stabiliser and the other from the wing, were from the missing Boeing 777, which went missing on March 8, 2014 with 239 people aboard.

"I welcome the Technical Examination Report released by the bureau confirming the debris almost certainly originated from MH370," Chester said.

"The second part contained the words 'No Step' with stencilling consistent with that used by Malaysian Airlines and a fastener attached to the part provided evidence linking the part to the aircraft's production line.

Chester said the search for MH370 flight -- enroute from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing -- would continue, and it was once again ready to searching the final 20,000 square km in the search area.
