A piece of plane wreckage found in Nakon si Thammarat has prompted suspicions that a piece of missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 that vanished almost two years ago may have washed up on Thailand’s shores.

plane wreckage foundThe villagers who discovered the 2 meters wide 3 meters long wreckage quickly contacted authorities in a bid to find its origin. Thai media outlets quickly speculated that it is part of the plane that disappeared with 239 people on board on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
So far there has been no confirmation that the wreckage does belong to that plane and a local fisherman said that judging by the barnacles it could only have been submerged in the ocean for a year. Experts have suggested that as one piece of the plane washed up on the French Island of Reunion in July 2015 it would be unlikely that other bits of wreckage could have drifted across the equator into the northern hemisphere. They also say that the markings suggest it would be more likely to be aerospace related. However careful examination is needed before any conclusion can be drawn.
