(Newser) – Another piece from the world's only missing Boeing 777 appears to have washed up in the Indian Ocean. An object believed to be part of the Malaysian Airlines jet's horizontal stabilizer came ashore in Mozambique, reports NBC News. The piece is on its way to Malaysia for confirmation, but investigators have "tentatively identified" it as part of Flight MH370, reports the AP. It's in the same general vicinity of the ocean where the only confirmed piece of jet has turned up to date. The potential discovery comes almost exactly two years after the jet with 239 people aboard mysteriously disappeared while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014.
