The wing section measuring around two metres by 1.5 metres fell from the Boeing 737 shortly after it left Jakarta's Sukarno-Hatta airport on a domestic flight, said Totok Suwarto, a senior official there.

A flap? Slat? Wing Panel? Surely not an entire wingtip...
1st we heard it was an A319 loosing a flap section and had to RTB.
Then we heard it was a 737 loosing a part of the skin and had to RTB.
Then the airline said the 737 returned not due to missing a skin section but due to to a hydraulic problem.
Then the airline denied the piece found on the ground was theirs.
Then the airport put the piece against the plane and found that it fits perfectly, so therefore they announced that info.
Then the airline said, "it's not that big, only 50x40cm"...
Last that I heard the airport said, "it is BIGGER than 50x40cm..."
