Two pieces of debris discovered in Mozambique, suspected to be from a Malaysia Airlines plane that went missing in 2014, have on Tuesday arrived in Sydney for inspection.
The Beijing-bound flight MH370, with 239 people aboard, disappeared about an hour after it took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport on March 8, 2014.
Australian Department of Infrastructure and Transport said in a statement both items would be examined in Canberra by investigators from Australia and Malaysia.
It added that specialists from Boeing, Geoscience Australia and the Australian National University would join the team.
The department said the items were recovered along the coast of Mozambique earlier this month.
Darren Chester, Minister for Infrastructure and Transport,
said the items were of interest, because of the rigorous analysis to be performed.
He said it was not possible to speculate on how long it might take to reach any conclusions.
“I would like to assure the loved ones of those on board the aircraft, and the wider traveling community, that the examination will be thorough and undertaken by an experienced international investigation team.
The Australian-led international search team has yet to locate the missing airliner, which is thought to have crashed in the southern Indian Ocean. (dpa/NAN)
