The residents of Kudahuvadhoo island in Indian Ocean reported seeing a low-flying passenger jet on the same day MH370 disappeared, reported an English newspaper.

239 people were on the Malaysian Airlines flight when it disappeared in March 2014. The residents of Maldives island said that they saw a plane with red and blue markings on the day MH370 vanished.

“I have never seen a jet flying so low over our island before. We have seen seaplanes, but I am sure that this was not one of those. I could even make out the doors on the plane clearly,” one of the villagers said.

The witnesses also agreed that they saw the plane travelling north to south-east, towards the southern tip of Maldives, quoted the Independent.

Moreover, acoustic scientists have said that the plane might have crashed near Maldives as a high energy sound was measured in the area around the same time. This can help locate the plane’s final crashing coordinates.
