Wearing the new livery for the now merged Trans Maldivian Airways and Maldivian Air Taxi. Only 8Q-MAN and 8Q-TMG current wear it. She's taxiing in after splashdown adjacent to the Island of Meedhupparu bringing tourists in from Male, a 45 minute flight away. This sea plane landed heavy 2nm south of Kuredu Island on 02/07/15 causing substantial damage leading to it sinking and capsizing minutes later. All 11 passengers and 3 crew escaped without injury. A local boat assisted them (Canon 50D + 24-105 F/4 L)
