Paris: A plane door was on Sunday found on Indian Ocean’s Reunion Island, The Telegraph reported. The locals believe the door to be of the missing Malaysian airliner MH370.

Reunion Island is a French territory, 600 km east of Madagascar.

A two-metre, barnacle-encrusted flaperon or the wing component of an aircraft, found on July 29, arrived in the French city of Toulouse late Saturday for further analysis.

Preliminary results are expected by Wednesday.
