French investigators at the French aeronautical research laboratory near Toulouse have formally identified a flaperon that washed-up on a remote island in the Indian Ocean as part of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 777 which disappeared more than a year ago. The Paris prosecutor’s office has confirmed that investigators used maintenance records to match a serial number found on the wing part with the missing aircraft. “Today it is possible to state with certainty that the flaperon discovered on Reunion July 29, 2015 corresponds to that of Flight MH370,” the prosecutor’s statement said.
