Malaysian Official: Wing Flap From Boeing 777

- VOA News,August 3, 2015

Minister Liow Tiong Lai said French authorities and plane maker Boeing were among those who have confirmed that the so-called flaperon came off a 777 jet. It has been taken to France for further analysis, which is due to begin on Wednesday.

He also said Malaysia is reaching out to territories near Reunion Island, which is east of Madagascar, to help determine whether any other objects that may was ashore in the region could be part of the missing plane.

A new piece of debris, meanwhile, found on Sunday on the Reunion Island turned out to be a "domestic ladder,'' and doesn't belong to a plane, Malaysian Director General of Civil Aviation Azharuddin Abdul Rahman told The Associated Press amid media reports that a new plane part was found.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared in March 2014 with 239 people on board. It is the only missing 777 jet.

马来西亚:残片来自马航370失踪客机同型飞机

- 美国之音,2015年8月3日

马来西亚交通部长星期天说,已证实上星期在印度洋岛屿上找到的飞机残片来自与失踪马航班机同类型飞机。

马来西亚交通部长廖中莱说,法国当局和飞机制造商波音公司等证实,这块残片是波音777客机的襟副翼。他还说,马来西亚在马达加斯加以东的留尼汪岛附近地区进行搜索,看是否还有可能是来自失踪客机的其他物体。

另外,有关当局正对留尼汪岛上另外一块可能是机舱门的金属残片进行分析。这块残片在圣丹尼斯附近发现,距离发现襟副翼的地方约25公里。襟副翼已被送往法国分析。分析工作从星期三开始。

马航370班机去年三月从吉隆坡飞往北京途中失踪,机上共有239人。这是唯一失踪的波音777喷气式客机。
