LEFT OUTBOARD AFT FLAP SECTION

What was found? A left outboard aft flap section has been 'confirmed' to be part of the MH370. A flap is used to increase the lift of an aircraft wing at a given speet and is usually mounted on the wing's trailing edges. The outboard flap is usually closer to the wing's edge.

Where and when? The section was found on May 10, 2016, off the coast of Ilot Bernache, Mauritius, on near the northern tip of the African island.

HORIZONTAL STABILISER 

What was found? A horizontal stabiliser - from the right-hand tail section of the plane. The words 'NO STEP' on the panel matched those used by Malaysia Airlines making it 'almost certainly' from MH370, according to experts.

Where and when? It was found on February 28, 2016 by US lawyer Blaine Gibson, again in Mozambique.

ENGINE COWLING 

What was found? A 70cm x 70cm piece of engine cowling. Experts said it was 'almost certainly' from the plane after seeing Rolls-Royce stencilling, which is consistent with those used by Boeing 777s used by Malaysia Airlines.

Where and when? Found on a beach on March 21, 2016 by archaeologist Neels Kruger on a beach at Mossel Bay on the southern tip of South Africa.

RIGHT-HAND ENGINE FAN COWLING

What was found? A segment of the right-hand engine fan cowling, which is the part of the exterior covering of the aircraft's engine. A cowling is used to drag reduction, engine cooling and decorative purposes. The aircraft part is 'almost certainly' from MH370.
