Wreackage from missing MH370 washes up in Thailand Beach.

 Discovery: The large piece of curved metal (pictured) washed ashore in Nakhon Si Thammarat province, according to a local official

A suspected piece of plane wreckage has been discovered by villagers on a beach in southern Thailand, prompting speculation that it could be from missing airliner MH370, which vanished en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March 2014 with 239 people on board. 

The large piece of curved metal  washed ashore in Nakhon Si Thammarat province, according to a local official. The barnacle-covered piece of metal has some identifying features, which should help investigators narrow down whether or not it came from a plane. 

 Speculation: Villagers discovered the piece of metal (pictured), before reporting it to the authorities to help identify it, said Tanyapat Patthikongpan, head of Pak Phanang district

Find: The barnacle-covered piece of metal has some identifying features, which should help narrow down whether or not it came from a plane
 Mystery: According to Patthikongpan, local 'fishermen said it could have been under the sea for no more than a year, judging from barnacles on it'. The edges of the piece of metal appear to reveal a 'honeycomb' structure, which is widely used in aircraft and rockets due to its light weight
Surfaced: The number ‘323’ is printed near the ragged edge, as pointed out by the villagers. Elsewhere, the numbers ‘307’ and ‘308’ are printed
