Air France pilot reports Reunion debris sighting

An Air France pilot has reported a debris sighting just off the Indian Ocean island of Reunion, where a part of the Boeing 777-200 that operated Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was found on July 29.

“Air France confirms that, in line with current procedures, the crew of flight AF642 from Paris-Orly to La Réunion on Sept. 14, 2015 reported an unidentified floating object to the control tower at Roland Garros airport in Denis de la Réunion, during the approach to la Réunion,” an Air France spokeswoman said.

Experts have already established that a flaperon, discovered on July 29, belonged to the ill-fated flight. There have also been further objects reported.
