Papa - it's (sadly) been all over twitter. Someone really did think it could be important.

Perfect match, almost fingerprints

The part found on Rodrigues Island, adjusted for perspective and superposed on an archive picture of MA interior panel with complex pattern matching almost exactly. This sounds as good as a part number for me.

ATSB update on suspected MH370 debris

https://www.atsb.gov.au/publications...r/ae-2014-054/

An update on two possible pieces of MH370 debris recovered in Mozambique from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau. Conclusions are

Conclusions

At the time of writing, ongoing work was being conducted with respect to the marine ecology identification as well as testing of material samples. The results from these tests will be provided to the Malaysian investigation team once complete. Nevertheless, from the initial examination it was concluded that:

Part No. 1 was a flap track fairing segment, almost certainly from the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 aircraft, registered 9M-MRO.

Part No. 2 was a horizontal stabiliser panel segment, almost certainly from the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 aircraft, registered 9M-MRO.

Interesting that they use the new initials MAB in comparing the fonts used on the flap track fairing. I would have thought they'd use MAS.

Parts seem too clean for such a long time in sea water. Lets cross our fingers!

Colour me cynical, but when I see pieces like these I often wonder if someone in the Ukraine hasn't got themselves a nice little business crating up pieces of MH17 and shipping them to places looking to profit from MH370 tourism.

Two more seems like only one!

It is the same piece but upside down!

Yes, that's one of the pieces shown in two photographs, side by side, from different angles. Probably part of a trailing edge from a wing or stabiliser?


The other is in the first link and looks more like part of a fairing, similar to the piece found by Liam Lotter a while ago.


The one you've posted an image of (thank you) was found about two weeks ago in the North of the island; the other was found at the Southern tip, yesterday (Tuesday).

Bertie;


They would have had to float them there, in order to collect enough marine life to make them look authentic.


These don't look terribly colonised, however several of the other items found prior to today, had a lot of small, slimy passengers.
