Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 vanished without a trace en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on Mar. 8, 2014 with 239 people on board. It departed at 12:41 a.m. local time, but air traffic control lost contact with the plane less than half an hour into the flight.
On Wednesday 29 July 2015, a piece of debris from a plane was found on the island of La Reunion, an island in the Indian Ocean about 500 miles east of Madagascar. On 3 Sept 2015 the object was confirmed by the French authorities to be a flaperon, a wing component from the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370.
Since then pieces of debris keep washing ashore along the East African coastlines and are being examined by authorities to establish their origin.
So far there are still no definitive answers to what happened to flight MH370 and the 239 souls it was carrying.
