    and if it did try to land wheels down as reports say then you can clearly see from photo that that didnt really go to plan and it looks as if the wheels must have been ripped off in the impact

    opps my bad just been reading up about the crash and it seems the wheels still up at the time but im still sure its part of this aircraft as it was found less then 30m from where the plane ended up in the direction from witch it would of made contact with the ground . at first i did also think it was a wheel part but the more i look at it there are signs of burning - smoke damage on the inside of this part and also in some more photos that you can see on the net you can see the engines have been smashed off

    Interesting points. After looking at online pictures of Daimler-Benz DB 601 engines the part you found - might/could - be from a supercharger, its the only circular flanged shape that seems similar on that engine model. If the supercharger came apart at high power because of some catastrophic damage its fragments would look like what you found. Would explain the scraped/melted/burnt appearance.
