Wearing the new livery for the now merged Trans Maldivian Airways and Maldivian Air Taxi. Taxiing out in to open water for take-off taking holidaymakers back to Male, a 45 minute flight away for connecting flights. 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, along with their luggage. A local boat came to their assistance (Canon 50D + 24-105 F/4 L)
