6:34 pm
headline what could be a major development in the case of mh 370, the malaysian airlines jet that disappeared one year four months and 21 days ago. u.s. officials now saying debris just discovered is from the same type of plane that went missing. here's abc's jim avila now. >> reporter: these pictures off the west coast of africa crews examining what appears to be a part of an aircraft. one source close to the investigation of that missing malaysian plane says this part appears to be from a boeing 777. the associated press reporting it appears to be a flap from the trailing edge of a wing which is specific to the 777. those flaps are moveable and are used during landing and takeoff. investigators will undoubtedly want experts to see this part with their own eyes. boeing tells abc news tonight, it continues to offer its expertise to the investigation which is being headed by the australian aviation safety
6:35 pm
board. if this is indeed a part from a boeing 777 and can be linked to the missing mh 370, it would be the first physical evidence of the jetliner that went missing nearly a year and a half ago with 239 souls on board. the next step is to recover that part and have investigators look for the serial numbers that could be traced back to the 77 that is missing. every part of the plane is traceable. david. >> that's the next step. jim avila live in washington for us thank you. i want to get right to retired colonel steven ganyard. i want to take our viewers back to those images late today of the debris discovered. when you look at that debris, what do you see? >> it's interesting you can see the barnacles on this debris. it's been in the water a long time. the problem is that it's drifted so far away from where we think the airline went into the water that it's really not going to tell us where that airplane is.
6:36 pm
it's a nice piece of evidence. the families can begin to have closure, but in terms of telling us where the actual airplane is on the bottom of the indian ocean and why it got there, that's still a mystery tonight. >> you heard me mentioned one year four months and 21 days how remarkable would it be to find it this long after it disappeared? >> if you saw the map of the indian ocean, david, that debris drifted 4,000, 5,000 miles, so it took that long to get to the other side of the indian ocean but it still doesn't tell us where the airplane went in where that black box is and it doesn't help move the narrative forward on what happened to mh 370. >> what could be a major development but cautious tonight, thank you. now to the dangerous heat from coast to coast, 35 million americans dealing with this 20 states from new york to oregon under heat warnings and the heat

6:40 pm
these kayakers this morning. their boats covered in oil. >> it looks like oil on the water and tar on the beach in a way that's not normal. >> reporter: unclear at this hour if it is natural seepage. it appears to be more than that. there are oil platforms nearby. if this is indeed a spill, it will be the second off santa barbara in just over two months. 21,000 gallons flowed in the pacific when an underground pipeline rep toured in may killing hundreds of birds and wildlife and prompting the governor to declare a state of emergency. the beach isn't closed but people are advised to stay out of the water and the sand and here's why. tar balls along the shore line. >> nick thank you. this evening the dangerous scene outside a children's museum that suddenly came crashing down injuring 8 children as they were waiting for their parents to pick them up from camp.

6:43 pm
10,000 tez messages. on facebook, brady is saying "to suggest that i destroyed a phone to avoid giving the nfl information it requested is completely wrong." he insists that he simply replaced a broken samsung with a new iphone 6. adding "i have never written, texted, or emailed to anybody at any time anything related to football air pressure." >> it is completely incomprehensible to me that the league continues to take steps to disparage one of its all-time greatest players. >> reporter: brady's teammates firmly behind him. >> tom brady said that he did nothing wrong. do you believe him? >> we support him and believe in him. >> reporter: the nfl has filed an appeal of the decision in minnesota federal court. as of now brady is out four games, that's one quarter of the nfl season. >> thank you. tonight word a major figure in the war on terror is dead. the notorious one eyed leader of the taliban, evading capture
