Day 11: Maldives residents report seeing plane

No one knows where missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 is now, but residents of the Maldives say a plane that could have been a Boeing 777 flew over the island several hours after the airliner went missing.

The Maldives is a chain of 26 islands in the Indian Ocean, and could easily have been reached by Flight 370, which went missing at about 1:30 a.m. on March 8.

At 6:15 a.m., several islanders reported seeing a large white jumbo jet with red stripes, reports an island newspaper.

The plane was flying so low one resident said he could make out the plane’s doors.

The newspaper, Haveeru, said the plane was reportedly seen over Kuda Huvadhoo, the largest of the tiny nation’s islands.
