Fresh hope in the search for missing MH370 as suspected aircraft debris washes up ...


Debris which may be from a commercial aircraft has been found on a remote beach in Australia's far north - raising fresh hopes of finding missing aircraft MH370.

Mick Elcoate was fishing on a remote beach about seven killometres north of Cape Tribulation, in Far North Queensland, when he spotted wreckage washed ashore on Monday morning. 

'My initial thoughts were that it was either part of a yacht's rudder, or possibly a trim tab from an aircraft,' Mr Elcoate told Daily Mail Australia. 

The avionics technician snapped pictures of the wing-like structure, which was covered in sand and shells. 

Mr Elcoate said he doesn't have expertise in aircraft structures so he decided to share the photos with the Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Facebook group 'to see if anyone could ID it'.
