Malaysian airlines flight MH-370 remains the greatest aviation mystery for its complete disappearance. By complete, nothing has yet been found at all. No crash pieces, bodies, items from the aircraft. It seems to have just vanished as if aliens abducted the aircraft. This is a real X-Files mystery.

Now, after a full year since it has vanished and deep sea searches off the coast of Australia that yielded nothing, the residents of Maldives, which is a 190-degree turn of the aircraft location, claim to have seen the aircraft flying low over the islands. Specifically, residents of Kudahuvadhoo, clearly state they saw the low flying aircraft the morning it vanished. If true, the island is over 5000 km from the current search areas! Witnesses claim the aircraft was flying so low, they knew something was not right and could clearly see it was the same aircraft and markings. At Curtin University, acoustic sounds were heard from that part of the Indian Ocean that were unique and not natural in origin. Many residents of this small island of the Dhaalu Atoll witnessed a huge aircraft flying low over their island on a bright, clear day. They were amazed by its size. Many of the witnesses contacted the police and filed reports. These witnesses claimed to be able to see the door of the aircraft and was flying north to southeast. None of them saw the plane crash.

At the time of MH-370's vanishing, the Maldive islands claimed that no such aircraft violated its airspace, but witnesses now coming forth seem to refute this. Maybe the Maldives government did not reveal their radar tracking locations or capabilities. Curtin university's Center for Marine Science and Technology began investigating a low-frequency underwater sound signal that was recorded west of Rottnest Island just after 1:30 a.m. on March 8. On that day, the plane is last seen on military radar at 2.14 a.m., heading west over the Strait of Malacca. Since then, 238 lives have disappeared with no trace.

The question is: Why are the residents in the Maldive's just now reporting what seems to be the aircraft? Some of the residents knew that an airline was missing then, some did not. You would think that Maldives' radar would have reported seeing it through secret communication with investigating agencies. Why did it take police so long to put the several sighting reports together and tie them to MH-370? As one witness stated, what they saw was very unusual and after they reported it, just went on with their life. They did not know that others had also filed reports with local police. Thus, it seems the local police there dropped the ball for whatever reason. Maybe the police there simply did not believe the eyewitnesses on this tiny island with 3500 people, yet, did their duty and took the report and filed it away.

With these new sightings, the search really must now rule it out for certain with a search of the area. All of this is simply adding more mystery to a mysterious flight!

      They must search that area to resolve it.

      I heard reports on CNN about the Maldives at the time. They used a BBC report I think that interviewed a couple of islanders. Not sure why they dismissed them out of hand. We'll see.
