    MH370: A Baffling Mystery Solved? (25)

    Malaysian experts carrying out the investigation into the disappearance of MH370 confirmed that after two years of search for the missing airliner the debris had never been found.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, disappeared from radar screens on March 8, 2014, less than an hour after takeoff. There were 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board the Boeing 777 aircraft.

    "To-date, the MH370 wreckage has still not been found despite the continuing search in the South Indian Ocean. However, a flaperon was recovered in the French island of Reunion on 29 July 2015 and was determined to have been a part of the MH370 aircraft," the interim statement on the investigation into Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Flight MH370 read.

    The discovery of a fragment of the plane’s wing (flaperon) on the French Island of La Reunion in the Indian Ocean helped to narrow down the search area.
