Nya rön om Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 oförklarliga krasch, vrakdelar hittade i vattnet.

Nu på söndagsmorgonen kalifornisk tid så verkar eftersökningarna efter Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 ha hittat vissa viktiga pusselbitar, bland annat har man hittat vrakdelar efter planet flytande i vattnet.

A Vietnamese search aircraft located fragments Sunday floating in waters off southern Vietnam that are suspected of coming from a Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU 0.00% jetliner that went missing a day earlier with 239 people on board.

The fragments were believed to be a composite inner door and a piece of the tail, Vietnam’s ministry of information and communication said in a posting on its website. They were located about 50 miles south-southwest of Tho Chu island.

Officials released photograph of one fragment floating in the water. Malaysia Airlines said it had received no confirmation regarding the suspected debris.

Using a system that looks for flashes around the world, the Pentagon reviewed preliminary surveillance data from the area where the plane disappeared and saw no evidence of an explosion, said an American government official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the subject matter was classified. A team of aviation experts led by the National Transportation Safety Board was on its way to the area.

Och de flesta nyhetskällor som jag har kollat nu på morgonen anser också att det är osannolikt att man ska ha kunnat smuggla en bomb ombord på flygplanet i Kuala Lumpur.

De två män som reste med förfalskade pass har köpt sina biljetter samtidigt och kommer med stor säkerhet att kunna identifieras på CCTV-kameror under dagen.

M.a.o. fler ledtrådar men ännu ingenting som klart visar på en katastrofal olycka eller ett terrordåd.

Uppdaterat Måndag: rapporterna om att vrakdelar har hittats är felaktiga:Thomas Fuller skriver i New York Times: False Leads Set Back Hunt for Missing Malaysian Jet

SEPANG, Malaysia — The search for the missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner was set back on Monday by a number of false leads that seemed to underline how little investigators knew about the whereabouts of the plane, which vanished on Saturday.

A suspected life raft bobbing in the Gulf of Thailand turned out to be the lid of a large box, Vietnamese authorities said. An oil slick in Malaysian waters was found not to contain jet fuel. And what was initially thought to be an aircraft tail floating in the Gulf of Thailand was actually “logs tied together,” according to a Malaysian official.

The failure so far to locate any trace of the aircraft raised questions about whether the ships, planes and helicopters searching the waters south of Vietnam, some of them using highly sophisticated equipment, were looking in the right place.
