Paint and stenciling on debris found in Mozambique matches Boeing 777 parts used by Malaysia Airlines, investigators searching for missing Flight MH370 said Wednesday.

Examination and analysis of two parts found on the east African coast was carried out in Australia by international experts, the Australian Transportation Safety Bureau (ATSB) announced in an update.

“The dimensions, materials and construction of both parts conform to the specifications of a Boeing 777 aircraft,” it said. “The paint and stenciling on both parts match those used by Malaysia Airlines; and as such, both parts are consistent with panels from a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 aircraft, and are almost certainly from MH370.”

Last week, officials said the discoveries were “consistent with drift modeling” that “further affirms our search efforts in the southern Indian Ocean.”
