#MH370 Update(?): Residents of Maldive Island Report Seeing 'Low Flying Plane' at 6:15 AM on March 8Topics: International News
The question mark in the title here is because there have been so many versions of reality related to the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 that at this point one has to take almost every report with a grain of salt.
This having been said, Haveeru News reported:
Residents of the remote Maldives island of Kuda Huvadhoo in Dhaal Atoll have reported seeing a "low flying jumbo jet" on the morning of the disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.IBT adds that this development comes as the newly discussed theory that the airplane could have used the 'Terrain Masking' technique to avoid being detected by the radar, is gaining credibility. I can't help but wonder if, assuming this report is spot-on, the MH370 pilot practiced this technique on his home simulator. After all, usually only military pilots have the training and expertise of avoiding radar - and no pilot on MH370 had military training.
Whilst the disappearance of the Boeing 777 jet, carrying 239 passengers has left the whole world in bewilderment, several residents of Kuda Huvadhoo told Haveeru on Tuesday that they saw a "low flying jumbo jet" at around 6:15am on March 8.
They said that it was a white aircraft, with red stripes across it -- which is what the Malaysia Airlines flights typically look like.
Eyewitnesses from the Kuda Huvadhoo concurred that the aeroplane was travelling North to South-East, towards the Southern tip of the Maldives -- Addu. They also noted the incredibly loud noise that the flight made when it flew over the island.
Keep in mind that authorities found five Indian Ocean practice runways in the MH370 pilot's simulator.
The Telegraph has compiled a long list of the theories (so far) on what could have happened to Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370.
