My back is itchy by just looking at that first class seat... Does gunny sack rings a bell?
9M-MNA will be going back to Toulouse on 6 June for the finishing touches.
I still don't get the point why must bring her home unfinished for a "full dress rehearsal" then fly her back to TLS for 'finishing touches'.
Good coverage, Tarmizi... hope FY would continue plying the sector forever.
we already have daily PEN-BKI which to my opinion full to the brim all the time and PEN-KCH increased to 2xdaily now..
KBR-BKI errr... that's why only 2x week. trial period maybe...
I never thought that KBR has no refuel capability. Good to know... thanks.
I hope we can see KBR-BKK materialised
Pilot finds hole in plane's fuselage; airline and FBI investigate
By Rich Phillips, CNN
March 29, 2011 -- Updated 0222 GMT (1022 HKT)
(CNN) -- A US Airways 737 pilot in Charlotte, North Carolina, discovered a small hole in the exterior of his plane's fuselage Monday, prompting the airline to take the plane out of service and for the FBI to begin an investigation.
"During a pre-flight inspection, one of our captains noticed a small hole in the fuselage," said US Airways spokeswoman Valerie Wunder.
"Safety is paramount, so we took that aircraft out of service and our maintenance team is investigating," she said.
Wunder said that she had not seen the aircraft and could not characterize the size or shape of the hole, but said it was towards the rear of the aircraft.
Amy Thorseson, spokeswoman for the FBI in Charlotte, confirmed that the federal agency had an evidence team at the scene, but it was not immediately known what caused the hole in the plane.
The plane -- a 737-400 designated as flight 1161 from Philadelphia -- landed without incident at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport at about 4 p.m.
The plane holds 144 passengers, according to the US Airways website.
It was not immediately known how many people were aboard the aircraft, but all of the passengers were accommodated on other flights, according to a US Airways spokeswoman.
Raymund, I meant PEN the airport.... used to be working there. Now at Jetty.
BUT, considering the haywire condition there now (the major renovation), I missed it a little less.
I missed PEN...
Look what I've found.... PEN-HKT
No idea when it is going to start.
My queries to Penang Airport unfruitful as they also have no idea about this.
A call to AirAsia selfhelp menu? Might as well forget about it.
Anyone know about this? Ramani?
CargoLux scratched PEN from it's schedule many years ago.
This is exciting news however I study further, the time seems to publish in Greenwich Time instead of local time. If my calculation did not fail me, it should arrive at 1.30am @.@
Lagi Kesian la like that....
Thanks for the GREAT news Yong! So it's every Friday?
17th and 18th is on my working day. And my work place is no longer at the airport but at the Swettenham Pier now. As much as I would like to take you the those places for spotting, but I'm terribly sorry that I unable to accompany you during your spotting 'excursion'. My off-day is now fixed on Saturdays and Sundays.
It looks minimalist. But minimalist in a bad way.. sigh...
Why! why! why!!!..... I not at the airport anymore and Qantas is here... whyy!!!!
Fahiruz, thanks for the Fedex route info.
Thanks for the info jieloe. Sadly, come February onwards, I may not be able to post much on PEN activities since I will be stationed at nearby Swettenham Pier for a few months up to a year. But still available for weekend spotting though
And, expect more from me at Boats Galore thread.
GE guys are still here, with better pic as promised.
Just before 10am, I moved to the bus stop and tried Yusoff's rock!! View is a bit restricted but managed some.
Hah! My rock now, huh...? :D
Superb shots Laurie & MIR
MIR, those pics of new airport are on the banners along the wall at arrival hall... I was looking for a better pics. Banner tak mau [don't want]
N910MW. Belongs to General Electric Credit Corp Of Tennessee
Love the tail logo - A kid and a dog, running
She should have parked facing starboard side. Would have been much nicer...
Sorry, handphone cam. I try again tomorrow with better camera, IF she's still there.
How come no one reporting about the new Penang International Airport?
I've been searching for the pics of the new airport/terminal before Najib came for the launching ceremony. To no avail, I've stopped searching. Earlier today, I found the model has been encased and displayed at the airport info counter on the departure floor. And since you've got nicer photo from skyscrapercity, thank you very2 much. Was thinking about to bring the camera to the airport tomorrow.
Being at the airport day in and day out, it is a terrible experience. Dust here and there. Constant drilling and jackhammering makes you feel like you're having a root canal for hours. And sometimes you can feel the airport is shaking when the heavy machineries are moving about. The arrival hall and the whole ground floor, is like the Puduraya bus terminal. Terrible.
I photographed the GLEX from seat 19E, 9M-FYI
And a spanking new aircraft!
These were on Thursday 20th
CI sent B-18605, with FYA on the background
ETOPS certified. See the FO is wearing (goalkeeper's) gloves
HS-ABL from BKK. 'Body Slam Live In Asia (?)'
Late afternoon happy hour
MIR, Yusoff, nice photos.
No prob. Yours nicer though..
GLEX has been at PEN for a couple of days. I can't get a decent pic of her Good job MIR. Were you on the apron or on board an aircraft next to it?
BTW, at around 5.30pm yesterday, I saw 9M-MXA (I think) parked next to this GLEX. Still the new scheme looks lazy to me...
Today, I got bored so off to the Departure Hall I went...
B-18615 from TPE taxiing to Gate 7.
Over to Gate 8, the dirty, outdated "ZOOM!" AK (9M-AFQ) shows us how the air flows on her fuselage
Before the wing front edge (fore-wing??)...
... and just behind the wing
I didn't go spotting on Monday. Something came up. Flightstats ahh? selalu tipu sikit... [lied a bit]
70-200mm is more than enough for beach spot. I like that spot, we can sit under a shade, enjoy the sea breeze and eating peanuts while waiting for the aircraft to arrive.
Very nice Yusoff, I did not know each Fedex plane got a name.
I surprised to see that too... but I couldn't manage to get the portside head shot of the A310 to get its name though...
Beach spot not bad for taking photos !!!
How many mm needed from there ?
Tempting, huh?... wanna spot at PEN?
PX392 was operated by P2-ANA, new livery 767-300 parked at D35.
Clean and simple. not bad. but a little too clean on the tail though...
Another NEW AIRLINES...??
