Investigators in Malaysia, Australia and the U.S. have seen photographs of the latest object and sources say there is a good chance it comes from a Boeing 777.
The object has the words “NO STEP” on it and could be from the plane’s horizontal stabilizer — the wing-like parts attached to the tail, sources say. It was discovered by an American who has been blogging about the search for MH370.
Malaysia Airlines declined to comment, not wanting to speculate on the part until they could confirm its origin.
