Charred debris, possibly belonging to the missing MH370 plane, has been handed to investigators - raising the prospect of a flash fire on board the ill-fated jet.
An American amateur investigator handed over several pieces of blackened debris to Australia's Transport Safety Bureau on Monday in what may prove to be a breakthrough in one of the biggest mysteries in aviation history.
Blaine Gibson said the material, which had washed up in Madagascar, included what appeared to be an internal panel.

I thought the Malaysians finally admitted the pilot had the rerouted flight plan on his simulator so I wonder what the deal is with a fire.
The guy who handed them over...
Does he work for CNN...?
For WHATEVER reason (Pulls on Tinfoil Hat) we’re NEVER going to get the straight skinny on this plane crash. I mean, look how long it took to get the info on Lockerbie, Pan Am 103?
I’ve stopped worrying about this stuff. I’ll get the answers mother Government WANTS me to get in some 15-second news clip at 2am on a Sunday morning in February. *Rolleyes*
I HATE the Enemy Media. I HATE the world we’re living in these days. No justice for anyone. And any one of us, or someone WE love, could be the next victim.
I think this was an incendiary device that was lit and stuck in the bathroom waste can next to the cockpit. I think burning wires would have given more warning. This had to be a low level explosion
look how long it took to get the info on Lockerbie, Pan Am 103?”
We still have not received the truth about the explosion of TWA Flight 800 either. That one is of particular interest to me as I used to work for them back in the late 1950’s and 1960’s. Also many family members lost their jobs when TWA eventually declared bankruptcy and the overhaul base was closed. Doubt we will ever know the real truth in my lifetime.
That's racist. Hands up don't shoot. Black Lives Matter.
Another mystery that occurred under the watch of Bill Clinton. It was a sad day for the Kansas City overall base which now has nothing happening there.
Solving one problem (keeping terrorists out of the cockpit with stronger doors) leads to another problem (getting through the stronger door if the terrorist is already in the cockpit.)
I knew it. Someone had to do it . . .
I know, Grams. It’s such a farce. :(
so the plane flew on for hours after an explosion and while it was more than likely on fire . . .
I always assumed it was Iran, as Reagan had just shot their passenger jet down months before.
The first question is why it was over the Indian Ocean?
Really missed the old airport - when I was in high school we used to sit on the road that ran by the dike on the south end of the runway. Sometimes there was only a few inches clearance between the plane and the dike wall. Knew they had to move in order to grow. The overhaul base was such a massive structure but it seemed so far away from the city. TWA and Kansas City were synonymous, much like Houston and Continental. Neither airline survived. Never understood why airlines didn’t continue doing domestic overhaul work there but suppose it had to do with costs.
When TWA sold to American thousands of aircraft mechanics found themselves not only out of work but they also no longer had health insurance. Whole bunch of them were over 50,basically unemployable and not old enough to be covered by Medicare. Just a sad time for the city and the employees.
If the plane went to a certain height the fire would go out for lack of oxygon
Is that a laundry detergent?
Sorry, I confused this crash with the other more recent one that had the cockpit fire.
What does the Fox News Channel’s “expert” Gen. McInearny (spelling?) say about this report?
