what could this be?!

Interesting item, unfortunately what the images don't show clearly is the nature of the "straight edge and indent" on the right side of the piece.

I think the blue is too light, probably, for Malaysian. It's a shame there isn't a better res image so we could see the structure, but anyway it's just as likely to be from a boat.

colour match
 
in fact, by altering the gamma value (NOT THE TONE OR COLOUR) the colour match is quite close. It is not just a blue, but a particular tone and temperature of blue. For the experts of course at the end of the day.

why is it these pictures are always way too low res/poor quality to make out anything?

Hell, the average phone take better pictures than this...

There has to be an explanation of why a single amateur sleuth is finding pieces and not the folks spending millions searching.

If all this wreckage this person keeps finding is genuine, he may have to do some explaining ...

From what I understand nobody is spending millions searching Reunion beaches. All what he has to do is comb the beach and if parts washed there because of prevailing currents he or anybody else can find them.

Because, his job is trash removal from the beaches there.

I've written this here before - someone should survey the beach communities on the African shores where wreckage can reasonably be expected to wash up. In these parts of the world, a solid piece of material makes for a perfect roof or other structure. I have worked in Africa for years and the ingenuity of the people there to re-purpose things is amazing.

Looks like it has a honeycomb core.

Another possible aircraft part found in mosambique
 
This part was found on a beach in mosambique last december.

Anybody able to identify the number ( 676BB ? ) on that part.

On an AerSale Boeing 777 part catalogue maintenance, under the part number 113W9250-12 (Fairing assy-sprt NO.2), one reads: POSITION DATA : OUTBD FLAP AFT RH SIDE ACESS PANEL NUMBER: 676EB . Unfortunately, it seems I can’t post images or weblink I have.

676BB and 676EB are access panels on a flap support fairing from a Boeing 777.

Thank You very much, so this could be another part of MH370...

It's interesting that the pieces found so far are all parts of the flight controls/Flaps. Does this indicate they may have been deployed on touchdown on the water thus indicting a controlled landing attempt?

Mmmmm interesting...

Teddy Robinson 12th Mar 2016 02:19

Whilst we (collectively) are not in a position to comment on it ...
There is a pattern in the various bits that have been found,
NO WAY I am I going to state my conclusion.
But there is a pattern.

Good point. Does this mean that the fuselage may have sunk somewhat intact and the other expected flotsam like seat cushions and life vests are not adrift to be found on a shoreline?

Or, are these honeycomb composite pieces all that survive a two year journey in the currents without decomposing or sinking?
