Another possible piece of debris from missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was found in South Africa. Malaysian authorities said they will send a team to retrieve the object and will examine it, The Guardian reported. On Monday, South African archaeologist Neels Kruger found the object on a beach near the town of Mossel Bay in the southern coast of the country. Kruger said he recognised the brown honeycomb structure from images of other pieces of possible MH370 debris, adding that the object had what appeared to be the remains of the logo of Rolls Royce, which made the engines for the Boeing 777 airliner.
The South African Civil Aviation Authority in a statement said that necessary arrangements were being made for the part to be analysed and collected. “If it indeed belongs to an aircraft, [it] will be handed over to Malaysian authorities,” the statement said. Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said further examination is needed, since early reports suggest “there is a possibility of the piece originating from an inlet cowling of an aircraft engine”.Earlier this month, an object suspected to be a piece of debris from the missing flight was found off the coast of Mozambique and sent to Australia for analysis. Another possible piece of debris was found on the French island of Reunion. So far, the flaperon found in Reunion Island in July 2015 remains the only piece of debris that was confirmed to be a part of the missing Boeing 777. On March 8, 2014, Flight MH370 was en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur with 239 people on board when it went missing. Investigators believe the aircraft somehow rerouted to the southern Indian Ocean where it crashed, but they have not identified a crash site.
