    This is clearly a fire extinguisher bottle from an aircraft. looks to be the style used in the cargo bay of a 777. Just maybe it’s piece of the flight 370?

    very interesting. considering the object looks almost EXACTLY like part of an aircraft fire suppression system. could this be a part of the missing Malaysia airliner?

    take a look for yourselves and see how similar this “explosive device”, looks compared to an “extinguisher bottle” from an aircraft.
