Another day, another MH370 debris story right?
This time it’s a Pretoria man, Neels Kruger, who found the debris whilst taking a long stroll on the beach in Mossel Bay. Neels, an archaeologist and an aviation enthusiast, was walking with his family alongside the lagoon at the Klein Brak Rivier when he thinks he hit the jackpot.
More from News24:
“At first I found it strange, but then I had a closer look and saw the honeycomb core on the inside of the wreckage,” Kruger said.
While he was not sure what part of the plane it could be, he assumed it was the housing of the plane’s engine.
Kruger has been following the story of the missing plane very closely.
He said when he flipped over the debris, it had the grey stripes of the Rolls Royce logo underneath.
“I could still see half of the Rolls Royce logo, which had the double R imprinted on it,” he said.
Malaysia Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said on Tuesday it would send a team to retrieve the piece.
He reportedly said that based on early reports, there was a possibility that it was part of an “inlet cowling of an aircraft engine”.
The find is now being kept safe in bubble wrap until authorities can come and investigate. Let’s hope it is from that ill-fated flight so the families of the victims can finally have some peace.
