When the pieces were actually found is conflicting. Some of the listed sources say it's now while another says it's not. An unlisted source here says "last Friday." But do they mean last Friday as in a few days ago or Friday as in just over a week ago? The timeline would fit if a week ago.We started to write two days before the fist article in this series was published, which would to me be "last Friday." And the only debris discovered that matches the description Liow gave are the initial pieces reported about on August 9. Thoughts?

Xinhua went with what I stated. That Malaysia brought back debris, but didn't state when it was from. So far as my research goes, the only "honeycomb" material discovered in the Maldives, is the debris reported here on August 9. See the original pictures here: [1].

So what I can gather are several things: None of the sources listed, or mentioned in this thread, can be 100% specific as to what Friday they're talking about...this past Friday or the last Friday from this past one. Secondly...The transport minister only described one of the pieces as being very small, the size of a hand. Third, the only known honey comb material discovered is in the August 9 initial report of debris. Investigators arrived a few days ago and have examined, in their eyes, "new" debris...It remains unclear whether this is actually new debris, or just new in terms of the investigation into MH370.

I've also emailed the author of the photo we've been using, but have not gotten a reply. I wish we had the original file. I have a feeling all of these picture have been cropped. if so, our eyes may see something bigger, when it is in fact quite small. Just a thought.
