Debris might belong to missing flight MH370
A Malaysia Airlines plane
NATIONAL NEWS - The South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) has confirmed that debris that could belong to the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was found on Little Brak beach near Mossel Bay.

Reuters reported on 22 March that a team from Malaysia would be sent to retrieve a piece of debris found along the southern coast of South Africa to check whether it could belong to missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

Flight MH370 disappeared with 239 passengers and crew on board, shortly after taking off from Kuala Lumpur, bound for Beijing.

A piece of the plane washed up on the French island of Reunion in July 2015 but no further trace has been found.

Debris found earlier this month off the south-east African coast arrived in Australia for testing according to the report.

The spokesperson for The South African Civil Aviation Authority, Kabelo Ledwaba, said: "We have been in touch with the gentleman who picked up what could be aircraft debris near Mossel Bay in the Western Cape.

"The necessary arrangements are under way for the evaluation and collection of the part, which, if it indeed belongs to an aircraft, will then be handed over to Malaysian authorities, as was the case last week with the debris that was in the possession of the Lotter family from KwaZulu-Natal."

More information to follow as it becomes available.
