An Aeroflot plane en route from Moscow to Havana has deviated from its course, FlightAware live flight tracking indicated. The news sparked online speculation that NSA leaker Edward Snowden may be aboard the aircraft.
However upon arrival in the Cuban capital, crew members told reporters that Snowden was not on board the flight.
Aeroflot flight 150 to Havana took off from Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport at 14:10 pm local time (10:10 GMT) on Thursday and landed around 22:30 GMT. Whistleblower Edward Snowden has been holed up in the airport for the past two weeks.
The flight route usually passes over Scandinavia and across Greenland before turning south over Canada and the United States. However, this time the flight headed west across Europe before continuing its path over the Atlantic Ocean.
