  1. Paid a visit to the airport on an inbound flight to Jakarta today. It's a pretty big airport..way bigger than the previous terminal. But there's a really long wak from the arrival gate to the immigration. Buggy and travelators are available to help ease the journey.
  2. Just thought to share some photos from my trip to the event from these past 2 days. Here's a link to my FB post. Hope you guys enjoy it https://www.facebook.com/namuramc/posts/10154669091387670?notif_t=like&notif_id=1488556033631995
  3. Reply I got from the British HC: Hi Wong, The Red Arrows are still set to flypast KLCC at 3.45 pm on Friday (14th October). As for the event on Monday (17th October), the event at Epson College has not been rescheduled and is by invitation only. You may watch the display from the vicinity of Epson College. Do keep a look out on our Facebook page for regular updates.
  4. That'd be an awesome meet up. I'm certainly gonna attend if dinner, breakfast or drinks are on. Perhaps time to create a whatsapp group to see who's coming?
  5. Same here as well. If the trade days are open to public, I'd love to go for that too
  6. Hi guys, my bad, forgot to include the dates. The check in date is 20th March 2015 and check out date is 21st March 2015.
  7. Hi guys, I booked a small guesthouse near the airport. It's got 6 rooms and so far it's me and one more person. If anyone would like to share a room do feel free to let me know? Just looking for people to fill up the room so it won't be so empty Price, well, will leave it open. A small token sum will be fine. I'll get a rental car as well (hopefully), and still got 2 seats, so if anyone would like to share that cost, that'd be great
  8. That's gonna be awesome. I last saw the BUFF in the 2012 Singapore Airshow and was huge. Unfortunately didn't really have a good angle to shoot it. Guessing it's gonna be a fly by just like 2012.....I'd hazard it'd be hard for it to land at Langkawi..?
  9. Thanks flee! By any chance there'd be a group from here heading out to LIMA 2015? Would be great to head out there together and perhaps share the costs and excitement
  10. I was thinking to stay 2 days as well. My last experience at LIMA, there were some planes that may not be flying on one day, i.e 2013 i got the Typhoon, Grippen and Rafale in the morning, but the Hornet only came out the next day... Concern on my end was the hotel price...my last stay it cost me RM500/night....at Holiday Villa. Maybe if got 2-3 people going together, we can share the cost of the hotel and car.. I can poke around to try and find out the Hotel's staff price for Lima days this year. Or if got other cheaper alternatives that'd be cool too
  11. Thanks Flee, xtemujin for the info! Appreciate it! Will book the flight soon Anyone headed there on a day trip as well?
  12. Hi Guys, I'm keen on heading to LIMA 2015...but will likely not be staying a day. My plan to fly into Langkawi in the morning and head to the display area from there. Just wondering if anyone's done this and if transportation will be a problem? Planning to head out on the same day back to KUL
  13. Wonder if our RMAF boys will be showing up...
  14. Some additional notes here, states that KL airbase will be involved, but did not mention if the Raptors will be at KL airbase: http://www.malaysiandefence.com/?p=4478&utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=raptors-and-eagles-confirmed-for-cope-taufan-2014
  15. Looking forward to shooting the raptors! Might make a day trip down to Butterworth just to shoot them
  16. Final departure time was about 5:45PM. I can understand their frustrations as I was one of those who already had plans in place. But the reasoning given was really quite weird. Given the fact they already knew of a delay in the first place (hence informing us via SMS), but it seems like they did not put in place procedures to ensure there would be no further delays. Just my 2 cents really.
  17. Yeah its chaos in the departure gate now at the moment. They say there may be a flight at 5.30pm today..may..
  18. Another first here. Flight crew of AK868 "went back". Got a plane with no crew. Delayed for hours and still uncertain when we can head off http://www.malaysianwings.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=19865
  19. Hi guys. I have had the unfortunate opportunity to be on this flight. Ak868 to Krabi. flight was retimed from 1.15 to what was originally 2.30. Flight never got boarded and they could not give us any idea what time we can take off. It has since been retimed to 5.30 because apparently the crew "went back". But even this remains uncertain. Sounds like AA really has some explaining to do. The passengers are starting a petition/complaint and was hoping you guys could share where best to send it to. I believe it's being addressed to the general care line. ===== Inbox Fw: VERY DELAYED FLIGHT TO KRABI SATURDAY 10TH MAY 2014 Z Zahurin Mohamed to me 19 minutes ago Details On Saturday, 10 May 2014 3:56 PM, Zahurin Mohamed <zahurin.mohamed@yahoo.com> wrote: Dear Tan Sri Tony, I am speaking on behalf of the Air Asia Passengers who have been waiting to get on their flight to Krabi. The flight was supposed to leave at 1.15pm today and we are still waiting now. We were just informed that the crew may arrive only at 5.30pm !!!!!! Many have been looking forward for a long time for this holiday, many are so stressed out that they may even lose their hotel reservations in Krabi due to this late arrival You may think this is just another delayed flight, but for many of us, this is a whole day wasted, of their short holiday. The crew is going to provide refreshments, but they will never replace the lost time !!!!!!! We are going around to get names and addresses and will send you a petition. This should never happen. Professor Datin Zahurin Mohamed ====== Thanks everyone and looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this =D
  20. Hi Guys, I'm scheduled for a trip on AA which happens to fall in the duration of the potential cutover from LCCT to KLIA2..if it happens. Just wondering if you guys happen to have any idea on things like how many car parks are available (for overnight parking), rates etc?
  21. Hi Guys, been following this thread for quite a while and it's a really sad incident. I'm just curious about one thing. Early on, there were reports that people were able to call the cellphones of some of the passengers and the phones rang. My question would be, has this been completely debunked, and that the numbers being called are really uncontactable and that it was just a rumour. However, if it was something that really occured, anyone knows a place or person I can get the list of numbers that really rang?
  22. Hi Guys, someone shared this event with me and just thought to put it up here should anyone be interested in shooting it: http://www.redbullairrace.com/en_US/event/putrajaya Original link: http://www.aopa.org/News-and-Video/All-News/2013/October/07/red-bull-air-race-back-in-2014.aspx "The 2014 season kicks off Feb. 28 in Abu Dhabi and runs through November where it ends in China. Other stops include Putrajaya, Malaysia; Gdynia, Poland; Ascot, United Kingdom, Dallas/Fort Worth, and Las Vegas. Ticket information is not available for all locations, but Red Bull’s website said tickets will be available for Dallas/Fort Worth, Ascot, and Putrajaya starting Nov. 1 and China starting Dec. 1 (although a venue has yet to be announced)."
