Examination and analysis of two parts found on the east African coast was carried out in Australia by international experts, the Australian Transportation Safety Bureau (ATSB) announced in an update.
The Malaysian ICAO Safety Investigation Team has advised that:
- the dimensions, materials and construction of both parts conform to the specifications of a Boeing 777 aircraft;
- the paint and stencilling on both parts match those used by Malaysia Airlines; and
- as such, both parts are consistent with panels from a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 aircraft, and are almost certainly from MH370.
