French investigators have confirmed that a wing part found on the remote Indian Ocean island of La Réunion was from Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
The news comes after a month of testing during which it was confirmed that one of the figures on the debris corresponded to the serial number of an MH370 flaperon.
The plight of MH370 is one of the biggest mysteries in aviation history. The plane vanished from radar screens shortly after taking off from Kuala Lumpur on March 8, 2014, bound for Beijing. Investigators believe the plane was flown thousands of miles off course before eventually crashing somewhere off Australia.
The search area was expanded in April beyond an original 60,000 square kilometer search area to enable up to 120,000 square kilometers to be searched if required. More than 50,000 square kilometers of the seafloor have been searched so far.
