Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, disappeared from radar screens on March 8, 2014, less than an hour after takeoff. There were 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board.

Based on an analysis of aircraft performance data, experts suspected that the plane crashed in the southern Indian Ocean.

The Australian government’s Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) has been leading the MH370 search operation.

In July, a flaperon, the movable part of a plane’s wing that is lowered or raised to control the angle of the aircraft, was found on the French La Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean.

The wing fragment was sent to Toulouse, France to be investigated further by French and Malaysian experts.
