Airplane debris flown to Paris for MH370 probe
The wing part from a Boeing 777 that washed up on an Indian Ocean island arrived in Paris to be handed over
The wing part from a Boeing 777 that washed up on an Indian Ocean island arrived in Paris Saturday to be handed over to investigators looking for a possible link with missing flight MH370.
Paris' Orly airport website confirmed the Air France flight transporting the piece of wreckage landed at 6.17 am local time (0413 GMT). A police escort will accompany the part on its journey by road to a defense ministry laboratory near the southwestern city of Toulouse, where experts will begin their analysis on Wednesday.
In May 2014, Malaysia Airlines flight 370 disappeared after veering off course from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 passengers and crew on board.
