  4. Anyone has any idea why FY flights to and from SZB were delayed for the last few days? my flight yesterday from AOR-SZB was supposed to depart at 2.35pm but was retimed 3 times (3.30pm, 4.30pm & 6.30pm). Later on at 6.30pm, FY staff told us flight FY2165 going to be cancelled, which angered the passengers including myself, of course. Then FY staff told us our flight will be departing at 8.20pm and it did depart. Then later this evening, my return flight SZB-AOR (FY2170) which was supposed to depart at 5.15pm was again retimed to 5.45pm and only depart at 6.40pm. I tried to get explaination from the ground staff but was told that there was some technical problem with the flight, which they did not specified. I checked around with other passengers and it seems that the flight delay was also affecting other destinations as well.

  7. 2 years down the road & when the dust had settle, nobody including the PM and those in Khazanah will remember about the RM6bil (or is it RM11bil) "INVESTMENT" (read as bailout) into MAS on 28/08/2014. the problem with us M'sian, especially the politicians, is that they tend to forget quite easily what they had said and done on 28/08/2014. in 2 years time, they will say that the RM6bil (or is it RM11bil, again) was actually a financial assistant to revive MAS. “Give a man a fish; you only fed him for today.

  8. Hello Sascha, To answer some of your inquiries... taking photos of military aircraft in Butterworth is generally safe and won't get you into trouble with the police or airforce police as long as you're taking photos from public area and not too close to the airbase perimeter fence. Off course, there're a few good locations for you to take photos, especially for landing or approach shots. the only drawback it that, nobody actually know for sure the training schedule for RMAF aircrafts stationed in Butterworth and as far as I know, there's no exercise schedule to take place in October. as for visitors from other bases, most of the time it is by chance and luck. hope i answer some of your question... cheers...
  9. Woowwww... :shok: "Up to 110 aircraft from the air forces of the United States, New Zealand, Thailand, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates will fly in the skies between Darwin and Katherine for the 22-day biennial exercise"
  10. Saw RAAF Wedgetail on approach Butterworth rwy 36 around 3.00pm..
  11. Thanks MIR.. The Raptors are no quieter than the others especially during takeoff roll but notice it is much quieter when doing fly-pass compared with the Eagles, the Hornets or the Fulcrum. The noisiest of the lots, I must say, goes to the Hawks...
  12. Friday 20/06/2014 There were no fast flying jets today as it is the last day of exercise and the closing ceremony for Ex Cope Taufan 2014 is schedule in the afternoon/evening. Not much movement in the afternoon... M101-01 AeroTree USAF KC-135 p/s: Saw a pair of Black Hawks overflying Butterworth AFB this afternoon, sorry no photos of the pair..
  13. Sunblock is not required as you'll not be standing under the hot sun, swiftlet "hotel" provide enough shade and some more its very, very windy... The P3 belongs to the RAAF and there's a C-17 in Butterworth, most likely belongs to RAAF too.
  14. Thanks Capt. Radzi... Thanks Flee. Rwy 18 was active yesterday afternoon. Thanks Laurie. Look for the swiflet "hotel" in the paddy field, good for afternoon shots....
  15. Great catch LaurieB and light was superb.. :clapping: 16/06/2014 Unlike the good light and clear blue sky in the morning, it was dull and cloudy with strong wind in the afternoon. Nevertheless, it was a busy afternoon in Butterworth AFB with lots and lots of flying and here's my take of the afternoon session.... Returning to base after completing their sorties.. 85-0108/MA 03-4052/HH 85-0122/MA 03-4046/HH 85-0133/MA P3 Orion abort landing... M45-08 Returning much earlier than schedule... M45-01, 03-4055/HH & 03-4045/HH.. 03-4055 M40-32 M40-22 M43-03 84-0023/MA M43-04 That's all for today folks....
