Some potential wreckage has finally washed up.

A mysterious piece of plane debris has washed up on the French Indian Ocean island of La Reunion, prompting speculation it  could be part of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

The two-metre-long piece of wreckage, which seemed to be part of a wing, was found by people cleaning up a beach on the small island east of Madagascar.

"It was covered in shells, so one would say it had been in the water a long time," one witness said.

French air transport officials have already opened an investigation to find where the wreckage could have come from.

A local official said it was too early to suggest it might be from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight. Malaysia has also sent a team to verify whether the debris could be part of the missing flight.

"Whatever wreckage found needs to be further verified before we can further confirm whether it belongs to MH370," transport minister Liow Tiong Lai said.

"So we have dispatched a team to investigate on this issue and we hope that we can identify it as soon as possible."

"People are getting ahead of themselves over this," Eric Chesneau, an officer in the air transport police of the French Indian Ocean territory, said. "It is more than likely plane debris, [but] we don't know what exact part it may be."

Aviation commentator Peter Clark said the wreckage was "definitely off an aircraft".

"Whether it's off that aircraft, we have to wait and see. There has been two other aircraft gone down in that region of the Indian Ocean over the years," he told ABC News Breakfast.

"The one that comes to mind is the South African Airways that went off Mauritius in 1987.

"To confirm it, we will have to find the identification plate, and that will be able to be determined by Airbus whether it's one of their components.

"It looks like a flap system off a very large aircraft and knowing the current system off the Indian Ocean ... so the possibilities are very high that it could be off MH370."

Australian Transport Safety Bureau spokesman Joe Hatley said the component "looks in reasonably good shape".

"We really need to look into the detail of the size, the shape and if there are any identifying marks on it, such as part numbers or serial numbers," he told News Breakfast

    Which plane could the wreckage be from?
  • Malaysia Airlines flight MH370: The Boeing 777 disappeared in March 2014 en route from Kuala Lumpur to  Beijing. Search efforts have focused on a broad expanse of the southern Indian Ocean.
  • Ethiopian Airlines flight 961: The Boeing 767 was hijacked on November 23, 1996 by three Ethiopians seeking asylum in Australia. It crashed into the Indian Ocean near the Comoros Islands, killing 125 of the 175 passengers and crew, including the hijackers.
  • South African Airways flight 295: The Boeing 747 suffered a catastrophic in-flight fire in the cargo area and crashed into the Indian Ocean east of Mauritius on November 28, 1987, killing everyone on board. One of its flight recorders was recovered at a depth of 4,900m.

Wouldn't it be simpler to contact Boeing first?
