An Australian fisherman found a part that appears to be from the Boeing 777 MH370, which disappeared 6 years ago.
On October 5, 2020, Mick Elcoate, a fisherman from the Cape Tribulation region, found remains that appear to be from the Boeing 777 MH370, which disappeared 6 years ago.
We remind you that, on March 8, 2014, the Boeing 777-200ER aircraft – flight MH370 – disappeared without a trace. 6 years have passed and nothing is very clear about the disappearance of the plane, everything being shrouded in mystery.
During all this time, some remains were discovered, but with all the existing technology and all the effort made by the search teams, the Boeing 777-200ER aircraft was not found.
Returning to the notable discovery of October 5, Elcoate initially believed that the remains discovered were a small plane or a rudder. He had the idea to post the image in the facebook group AOPA - Association of Aircraft Owners and Pilots, in which there are also aircraft maintenance engineers.
Ben Morgan, AOPA's executive director, said the parts need to be examined by the Australian Investigation Agency, the Australian Bureau of Transportation Safety (ATSB). Ben also mentioned that a Boeing 737 MAX, a tragic plane crash in 2018, also crashed in the area.
Aviation expert Mick Gilbert is much more skeptical and mentions that the piece could belong to the Boeing 737-800 Air Niugini aircraft, which missed the landing at Chuuk International Airport in September 2018.
It remains to be seen what the authorities will decide after inspecting the piece.
