A source familiar with the matter said the debris was most likely from a Boeing 777, but that it was not yet established if it was from MH370.

A U.S. official said on Wednesday air safety investigators have a "high degree of confidence" that aircraft debris found in the Indian Ocean is from a Boeing 777, the same model as a Malaysia Airlines plane that disappeared last year, the Associated Press reported. The official said investigators, including a Boeing air safety investigator, have identified the component as a "flaperon" from the trailing edge of a 777 wing, AP reported. No trace has been found of the Malaysia Airlines jet, which disappeared in March last year carrying 239 passengers and crew from Kuala Lumpur, bound for Beijing, in what has become one of the greatest mysteries in aviation history.

Mark Kirk on Wednesday after a top fundraiser briefly suggested that the moderate elected to Barack Obama's former seat should abandon his re-election bid due to a recent series of public gaffes.
