MAPUTO, (CAJ News) – SOME debris found in Mozambique could be the missing piece of the puzzle that is the disappearance of the Malaysian Airlines jet MH370 that killed 239 people after plunging into the Indian Ocean in 2014.

If the mystery is resolved, it would bring to an end the largest and most expensive search in aviation history.

Mozambican authorities here told media they discovered some airline parts of aircraft suggesting it could be the missing parts of the plane that was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing (China).

A South African hotelier recently found the broken airline pieces with Malaysian Airline colours off the waters of Mozambique’s southern province of Inhambane.

Director of Aviation Authority, Joao de Abreu, is convinced the parts are of the missing plane.

The other pieces thought to be of the airline were picked up by the son of a European Union diplomat near the southern resort of Xai Xai before being handed over to authorities.

“We can see a label which will make it much easier to identify which aircraft it belongs to,” said Abreu.

The pieces will be sent to Malaysia for verification.

Australia, which is leading the search, believes the discoveries, and earlier ones in South Africa and Mauritius could help solve the mystery of the missing plane.
