Officials find another part of the missing MH370 plane

Officials find another part of the missing MH370 plane

Plane has been missing for two years.

About two years ago, Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 literally disappeared off the planet. No one has found the plane, but in July 2015 a piece of debris from the plane washed up on France.

Today, officials have announced another piece of debris discovered off the coast of Africa belonged to the missing plane:

The flap was found in June by residents on Pemba Island off the coast of Tanzania, and officials had previously said it was highly likely to have come from the missing Boeing 777. An analysis by experts at the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, which is heading up the search for the plane, subsequently confirmed the part was indeed from the aircraft, the agency said in a statement.

Several pieces of wreckage suspected to have come from the plane have washed ashore on coasts around the Indian Ocean since the aircraft vanished with 239 people on board during a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing on March 8, 2014.

Tanzania is over 4,000 miles from Malaysia.

How does something disappear OFF the planet, yet still have pieces found ON the planet? It is a conundrum to be sure.
