Looks to be a very different situation (we think) but yes another one.

Appears they know for sure this one was shot down and where it is, just now a matter of who to blame for doing it.

Obviously this is a tragedy no matter who died but one of the world's leading AIDS researchers as well as others on their way to an international AIDS conference in Australia were on board:

Debris, or what looks more like a wing flap, was found by officials on the French Reunion Island (near Madagascqr) last week.

Officials believe that it (the debris) are remnants of a Boeing 777 airliner (Malaysia Air 370) and will investigate further in the hopes that it will yield more details in the disappearance of Flight 370:

A wing flap suspected to be from the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 arrived at a French military testing facility Saturday, where it may help experts shed light on what happened to the plane and its passengers.

 French aviation experts will try to establish whether the wreckage was part of the Boeing 777 that disappeared March 8, 2014, with 239 people on board.

Air safety investigators, including one from Boeing, have identified the flaperon as being from the trailing edge of a Boeing 777 wing, a U.S. official said. Flight 370 is the only missing 777.

"I believe that we are moving closer to solving the mystery of MH370. This could be the convincing evidence that MH370 went down in the Indian Ocean," Malaysia's deputy transport minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi told AFP.

Analysts at the French aviation laboratory hope to glean details from metal stress to see what caused the flap to break off, spot explosive or other chemical traces, and study the sea life that made its home on the wing to pinpoint where it came  from.

A former Canadian aviation investigative expert believes that the Malaysian Airlines MH370 disappearance/crash was "murder-suicide."

Quote
"This is a criminal event. It's not an accident," Larry Vance, a former investigator with the Transportation Safety Board of Canada, told CBC News in a phone interview.

"This was planned and conducted, carried out by one individual who had control of the airplane via his job to have control of the airplane," Vance said.[/quote]

While Vance and his investigative team believe the crash was intentional, it contradicts the findings by the Australian Transportation Safety Board (ATSB) in their report claiming that the plane simply crashed because it ran out of fuel on autopilot during a high-speed descent.

Wreckage of a sort was found off Eastern Africa.  These were examined by Vance.

Vance and his team examined detailed photographs of some of the wreckage and concluded the plane was deliberately crashed. Their belief was based on two pieces of wreckage from the flap system on the right wing of the airplane   the flaperon, and the section of flap that's next to it.

By examining the marks on the wreckage, they theorized that the flaps had been down when the airplane hit the water. This would mean that the plane had entered the water at a relatively low speed.


Quote
"We would call that a controlled ditching into the water. And the only way that could happen is if somebody was flying the airplane. In particular, if somebody selected the flaps to be in the extended position."

And if the flaps were extended, it meant the engines were still running and that the plane had not run out of fuel.

Quote
"I believe with 100 per cent certainty that the airplane entered the water in a controlled ditching with the flaps extended," said Vance.

He also believes the one of the two -- the pilot who had ordered extra fuel -- to be the responsible one in turning off the transponder, shuttung  down the lights, and depressurizing the passenger cabin, manipulating or getting rid of his co-pilot and locking the cockpit door.  Without enough oxygen all on board would die.

Vance believes that the pilot wanted to crash the plane so that it would sink to the ocean bottom in one piece rather than in pieces, so that it would  make it very difficult for the wreckage to be found in the vastness that is the Indian Ocean.
