  1. This is definitely one historic moment for aviation enthusiasts in Malaysia. With the first official spotters deck opened, lets hope this initiative will be extended to other large airports such as PEN, SZB, BKI and KCH.
  2. That is a plucky move by a mediocre airline where in its own country is struggling. Good luck
  3. You are everywhere Prestley bro, sadly KCH has been all quiet Btw, nice catch.
  4. No wonder there is a book entitled "Humans are underrated" by Geoff Colvin. From most of the comments and thoughts here, seems most of us are very skeptical and utterly underestimating the ability of our own, well couldn't blame the typical Malaysian mindset could we? Anyway, this is a good discussion and I think we should continue, since MH inevitably will be in the list of for sale item by the current fed gov't, the Sarawak gov't could consider acquiring everything or take majority stake in MAB, and put the former successful Sarawakian CEO on the helm. He has done it before so there is no reason he can't do it again. Better than starting from scratch since everything is there except cash and the brain. That should put a big smile on the their tourism minister who has been asking for more direct link to KCH.
  5. Ridiculous as it may seems, he had a point there as a mayor as the second largest city in Sarawak. And who say you need to have very deep pocket to create a successful airline. With creative and innovative idea and wise planning, it has been proven that you don't need to be an oil baron to succeed in this industry as proven by Sir TF.
  6. It seems that KCH is the most underrated international airport in the country. More airline should take the earlier economic opportunities as the state's potential to become the largest economy in Malaysia is undeniable. Currently with only 3 international airlines (Scoot, Wing Air, Royal Brunei), MAHB should be more proactive in their marketing to optimise the facilities . The state government can only do so much.
  7. Quote: ..without prior consultation with the state government (which reportedly subsidised the flights).. Even if AK is making losses at that sector, they are not actually making any losses so they should be giving it more time as load is picking up.
  8. Probably this will give a clearer justification on the issue. Well Mr. AK sir, perhaps you could enlighten us, just bare in mind that we can sense biases. https://www.nst.com.my/opinion/columnists/2019/02/460296/should-sarawak-start-airline
  9. KUCHING: Sarawak is currently working out the details on a proposal to set up its own airline company. Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said the state government was trying to revisit the old proposal, where it expressed an interest in taking over MASWings. He said MASWings at the time was owned by Malaysia Airlines (now known as Malaysia Airlines Berhad), which was reluctant to sell it to Sarawak. “Now, we have a few options to have our own small airline connecting Kuching with other strategic destinations in the region. “We are working out the details now,” he told a press conference after launching the AirAsia Sarawak Campaign Livery at Kuching International Airport here today. Asked when it would take off, he said: “As soon as possible. That is my expectation.” http://www.theborneopost.com/2019/02/02/sarawaks-own-airline-confirmed-to-be-in-the-works-says-cm/ Is this a good news or a great news?
  10. Just out of curiosity..are all 4 of RMAF A400's configured as tanker or just the one we seen at Kuching? And..awesome shots Prestley, must have really cool lens now yeah
  11. Sharing some of my catch during the recent RMAF open day..
  12. Wow.., that's the spoiler we're talking about. Definitely going to be the earliest one there Saturday morning
  13. Nice touch on the pictures GeO. Btw, just a reminder, please do not forget the RMAF open day at RMAF Kuching Base on 27/10/2018. On static display will be A400M, Su30MKM, F/A18D, BAE Hawk and most equipment in their inventory. Aerobatic display is scheduled at 9.30am and 2.00pm. So do not miss this rare opportunity, all the best spotters. Get your weapon lock and loaded
  14. Look very well-maintained, clean and shiny. The paint suits the sky which makes it almost invincible. Nice shot.
