Residents Claim To Have Seen Low-flying Aircraft In Maldives

Some residents of Kudahuvadhoo Island in the Maldives have claimed to have seen a large low-flying aircraft, around 6.15am (Maldives time: GMT+5hrs). Any international flight passing over that island would be highly unusual and domestic transport uses small aircrafts. Police has now started an investigation. See the Map of Maldives Islands and understand the Maldives visa process if you are planning a holiday.
