A fragment of the wing of a Boeing 777 has washed up on Reunion Island 580 miles southeast of Madagascar, thousands of miles from where Indonesian Airlines Flight 370 was believed to have crashed in the ocean after disappearing on March 18, 2014. But is this enough to determine whether or not it is from that airplane, and if so, if the plane did indeed crash? As yet, while there is high confidence that the part is from a 777, there is no certain evidence that it's from Flight 370. A data tag including the plane's serial number is placed on every part of every airplane currently manufactured, but at present it appears that this data tag has been removed from this part, and what appear to be elements of a serial number do not match that of Flight 370.
