The Air Force today said that the debris found in the seas off Aluthgama that was first believed to be a part of an aircraft pulley and it may actually have come from another type of vehicle or machine.

“This part may or may not have come from an aircraft. It is a piece of hardware but it’s not part of a landing gear of an aircraft. The letters ‘AN’ was engraved on the pulley. This part may have come from an army or Navy vehicle,” Air Force Spokesman Wing Commander Gihan Senerviratne said.

He said an electronic connector had also been found along with this piece of equipment. An expert from the Air Force was sent to the scene to investigate the incident.(Darshana Sanjeewa)

    I fully agree with Aero man because its not a part of CART & the policeman who is there may knows well than Air Force.. via DM Android App

    I fully agree with the Aero Guy and Punchi Banda. One of the parts is definitely an aircraft cable pulley. AN 210 6a can be google searched and there are so many results to confirm that. Even the parts are available on eBay. I dont think it would be too difficult to identify which type of air crafts use this particular pulley. Finding that info would easily lead to more info. via DM iPad app

    Ah! so much for that

    Aero Guy Thursday, 29 May 2014 04:36 PM

    That's an aircraft cable pulley. AN-210-6A is the part number. Made out of phenolic, hence survived corrosion. Designed and manufactured for Cessna single engine aircrafts by Westinghouse.

    must be from tsunami times via DM Android App

    You do not need any experts to find out what it is. Go to the Google, you can find all the details on this pulley. No need for any fuss,.

    These items look so old to be from the lost Malaysian Airlines aircraft. These may be from the vehicles that drifted away in the Tsunami

    Punchi Banda Thursday, 29 May 2014 05:39 PM

    From the part # AN-210-6A on the picture , Its a electronic part manufactured by MOUSER Electronics Company of USA. Contact them at:
    Contact Mouser (USA) 1 (800) 346-6873 and they could verify
    what is was used for and when.

    Ananda Friday, 30 May 2014 08:34 AM

    It is definitely from a small aircraft (a Cessna) a flight control pulley...

    Simple Simon Friday, 30 May 2014 03:16 AM

    At least our EXPERTS have at the very start, put an end to a massive search operation, which our OTHER "EXPERTS" could have carried out to make the people forget their domestic problems!

    Shiran Friday, 30 May 2014 03:19 AM

    Its a aircraft cable pulley manufactured by a us company called westinghouse

    lionheart Friday, 30 May 2014 04:11 AM

    The airforce "EXPERT" in the photo looks like his previous nights alcohol has still not subsided.

    jayamin Friday, 30 May 2014 12:47 AM

    agree with aeroguy this is used in the control system of the elevators of Cessna. small air craft. via DM Android App

    What A Great Air Force we Have? Probably the MI24 rotor and engine confirmed from mulativ seas is actually a boat engine and rudder.

    kith udugama Friday, 30 May 2014 04:29 AM

    I think it fell off Hanumans Air craft When Hanuman try to shoot a Dandu Mnare

    [quote name="Izmy"]Why not send all these pundits who commented to investigate the missing Malaysian flight.[/quote]

    Izmy Friday, 30 May 2014 04:53 AM

    Why not send all these pundits who commented to investigate the missing Malaysian flight.
