    That red thing sticking out of nose of the aircraft - that's a Localizer antenna!

    20 feet lower and it would have been the hill and the outcome of this CRASH would have been much worse. Lucky no one was killed !

    Most likely is wreckage from the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. Reunion island is the closest land to the predicted crash site. Madagascar and the island of Mauritius could be next if there is anymore wreckage floating in that direction.
