The object has the words "NO STEP" on it and could be from the plane's horizontal stabilizer — the wing-like parts attached to the tail, sources say. It was discovered by an American who has been blogging about the search for MH370.

I would like to see the ocean current map for the area. I find it highly unlikely that parts washed up on Reunion AND Mozambique. There is a term called "shadowing" that likely would have put any additional parts in Madagascar and not mainland Africa. But like I said...I would need to see the ocean currents to be sure.

There are a lot of things that say "No Step" on them - heck, the top rung of my stepladder says that!

However, I'm not going to dismiss this yet, because if we are to believe that the Reunion piece was 100% from MH370, then it is at least within the realm of feasibility that other pieces could have floated further. I think quite a bit more information and investigation is going to be necessary before anybody jumps to any conclusions and confirms this is part of a B777, never mind one that has been missing for two years .

Just 11 posts as I write this, and already this thread has crackpot ideas resurfacing, and others offering points of view even declaring that that POV is based on nothing, and they apparently cant be bothered to do the least of a 30' Google search!

After the first debris on Reunion, Mozambique is eminently possible!

Just type into Google "ocean currents", and first hit offers a set of maps, the first showing a very credible current

The Indian ocean in this area seems to be comparable to a flipper machine where you have multiple currents in various directions eliminating the shadowing effect that you talked about. Parts that would ordinarily wash ashore in Madagascar could easily be carried northwards by the North Madagascar current and thereafter be carried into the Mozambique channel on Madagascar's western side by the Mozambique and Agulhas currents system. And again who is to say that no parts ended up on Madagascar's lonely eastern beaches. I mean it's a vast sparsely populated coastline with many people not actively on the hunt for MH370 parts.

Why is it unlikely ? It's the closest continental nation next to Reunion and Madagascar. Wait another 1-1.5 years and the circular ocean currents might just bring some parts back to Perth.

Two questions for folks here:

Was wreckage from South African 295 ever recovered from the Mozambique channel? It crashed just northeast of Mauritius and not that far from Reunion in 1987. I'm just curious about drift patterns of wreckage.

Is the 'skin' (presuming here it was found in isolation of any honeycomb chambers) buoyant?

Definitely looks like it came from a stab/wing.

Here's a photo of some wreckage from MH17, same font, but the rivet patterns look different, so probably a different section.

Can't tell whether either of those pieces are from a wing or a stab, but the photo airboeingbus posted sure looks like it's likely to be from MH370

Unfortunately I can't find any better photos of wings/stabs to get a better indication of where in particular that part came from

Looks similar but as well as the rivet pattern, the section discovered is a honeycomb composite, and that is aluminium. That's probably what helped it float all this time.

Without any markings (such as the flaperon had) will we be able to conclusively prove the part came from MH370? Possibly, but probably not. But with the ability to age the materials and determine the composition - and therefore likely source - we should be able to determine if it came from a modern airliner - as opposed, say, to a WW2 aircraft.

In which case, the question becomes: how many modern aircraft are unaccounted for that might have broken up in the Indian Ocean? That has to be an awfully small pool of aircraft.

I think there is enough there for OEM personnel to determine not just whether it came from a modern airliner, but what type of airliner. If it's from a 777, it seems very likely it's from MH370.

This section of aircraft looks relatively intact, which could suggest a controlled decent and landing (on water). If this is the case than the crash zone would be in a different location to where the search of the aircraft has been undertaken. This could extend the search.

I was thinking the same. Maybe it floated on the water surface for most of its journey rather than drifting submerged; it's possible that would make the object less likely to attract such colonising sea life.

Perhaps barnacles detach (or are forcibly detached by predators like seagulls) when the piece is lying on dry land for longer time. But I'm not a marine biologist, so...

Intact? Intact would be finding the entire horizontal stabilizer. Or the wing if this pieces comes from it. But it is a PIECE, a small one. Nothing intact about that. So, on the contrary, it shows the plane was destroyed on impacting the water.

I presume this part has been sent to investigators in Australia to try to verify if from the MH 370 aircraft. Where this was found, the general current patterns from the likely site of where the plane hit the water, to Mozambique does encourage the possibility of it from MH 370. I do hope this is another tiny piece of this aircraft suggest how it may have hit the water and keeps the search continuing for the main parts of the wreckage,

Since it is clearly a honeycomb structure, then sure we can eliminate ww2 aircrafts. But it can be almost anything made during the last 40-50 years.

...the question becomes: how many modern aircraft are unaccounted for that might have broken up in the Indian Ocean? That has to be an awfully small pool of aircraft.

That will be hard to count. We have to count military crashes as well. This piece can come from many other sources than MH370.

But it really doesn't matter much. We have the flapperon from Reunion Island which proves that MH370 crashed in the sea.

It is not at all unlikely that over the next fifty or one hundred years we will find a dozen more pieces of MH370 debris. And it will tell us exactly nothing.

This new piece seems to be glassfibre honeycomb. I wouldn't expect much of that on a B777. Where it uses honeycomb structures, I would expect to find carbon fibre honeycomb.

Since it has the text "no step", then it has to be a horizontal panel, and since it is flat, it is likely from a wing or horizontal stabilizer. Glassfibre honeycomb is used when a dielectric material is needed, because it covers some sort of antenna.

Does a B777 have some internal antenna at the wingtips or tips of horizontal stabilizer? I don't know, but I would guess not. Many military planes have antennas all over.

If I had to make a bet, then my bet would go on some military incident. Not necessarily a crash. It could be a bird strike doing a little damage to a plane which made it perfectly safe back home. For instance some survilliance plane hitting a seagull.

On Victor Iannello's twitter, there is numerous other images at various angles and views

from reddit, comparing the lettering on the found piece(top) vs. the picture of a recovered piece of MH17(which was posted earlier in this thread). comparison reddit page

Hope this helps put the pieces together on what happened on that day two years ago.

ps. Also, it seems that these photos were taken a few days ago and only a few insiders had access to them until today.

thanks to Victor Iannello for the pictures, and reddit user pigdead for the comparison

Actually, could this be part of the cabin ceiling?

I was watching Executive Decision & when they were crawling up the upper crown there were a lot of panels with NO STEP written on it (which they stepped on to force their way into the cabin). Ok, so it may not be factual but still, looking at this image it doesn't really look like part of a horizontal stabilizer.

It's been so long that MH370 has been missing that if they were to locate the main frame and the blackbox would they still be able to extract data?

It's been two years and it's been getting damaged by salt water since.

I know black boxes are designed to more or less comfortably withstand sudden quick impacts, but what about gradually getting damaged by salt water over a period of two years?

According to

the "overwhelming consensus" among aviation experts is that the piece cannot have come from a 777, since its honeycomb design is not used anywhere on the type.
