What can the Indian Ocean plane wreckage tell us?

Part of a plane wing washed up on a beach on the island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean this week. The wreckage is now en route to France for identification. It appears to be part of a Boeing 777. Malaysia Airlines flight 370 — which mysteriously disappeared over the Indian Ocean last year — was also a Boeing 777.
