TAXI!!!...... Maldivian style

Postby iaint on Sun 18 Oct 2009, 9:07 pm

As mentioned in the WS Commando thread (Modern Mil Photog) Spent just over a week in the Maldives on my Honeymoon. The trip consisted of flights from Heathrow to Doha and Doha to Male with Qatar Airways, then from Male to the resort island of Kuredu via a seaplane connection... The company serving our island was Maldivian Air Taxi. They fly the Twin Otter (bare-foot I must add!!)
Only a few photos of these...

A couple of shots of the Seaplanes at home at Male Airport

In the background are the blue and yellow tails of TwOtters of another seaplane company serving other islands (no pictures of them unfortunately...)

It rained one of the days...

Some of the departuers were that close to the shore they flew over the jetty off the island!

Splashdown! :yahoo:

Cheers for looking, and I shall add a few photos of the island and wildlife later on...
