The Beautiful Maldives

I have enjoyed covering many miles since my departure from Dubai. The route has taken me further around the United Arab Emirates before flying South down the Western Coast of India although I have enjoyed the past week immersing myself in videos and photos of the beautiful islands of the Maldives. I just wish I could immerse myself in the blazing sun, white sands and crystal clear waters first hand. It has most definitely become one of my must see destinations within my lifetime.

With out leaving the Maldives for the past couple of weeks, I have not yet written my next flight blog entry. Instead I have decided to include some videos and photos I have collected before I leave the islands for the final time. Enjoy.

During my stay in the Maldives I was interested in checking out a few of the islands seeing as there were so many to explore. I was shocked to discover that one of the islands is commonly known as “Trash Island” due to the fact that all of the waste from the holiday resorts is shipped to this single island where the large majority of which is burnt. The single occupant of the island is responsible for the burning and management of all of the rubbish. What a life to live whilst surround by such beauty. See the video below:

FLIGHT 60 AND A HALF) Hop to Kadhdhoo – South Maldives

Keen to head to the southern islands I took my small plane back up in to the skies for an short 35-40 minute flight to the island of Kadhdhoo which was one of the few which featured a dry land runway. The speckled clouds  gave a small amount of interest to the skies whilst it was difficult to spot many islands below. Knowing that there are hundreds of islands in real life, I was exceedingly disappointed by the standard FSX scenery.

The weather had calmed down since my arrival and this was the first time I was flying over the Maldives without the sound of thunder rattling my small plane. Once landed I parked next to a smaller Moony Bravo which then decided to taxi and take off. Maybe it was something I said? I looked on the map and read a little more about this airfield and learnt that it was actually home of the Maldives Airforce. I hadn’t even considered the possibility of a military strength on what appears to be such a calm and relaxing corner of the world.
