A large piece of debris found in Tanzania recently has been confirmed to be a part of a wing flap from missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370. The outboard flap is the fifth piece of debris from the plane to be identified by experts in Canberra since the first fragment - a 2m wing part known as a flaperon - was found on the French Indian Ocean island of Reunion in July last year. The Boeing 777 aircraft had disappeared in March 2014, with 239 passengers and crew on board, soon after taking off from Kuala Lumpur. It was bound for Beijing.
