  1. A win win situation for Air Asia and Airbus!
  2. I think our (jokers and non jokers) presence at WX can cause the temperature to rise so the weather men may be giving false weather readings to whoever. That's why I think they had been releasing weather baloons to get the correct temperature readings. Just my kampung sense though.
  3. Instead of buying SIA why don't he buy MAS. That will solve all his problems.
  4. I was just wondering when every one of our neighbours is using the Bell Huey, why don't we? Why did we choose to be different? But if the Hueys are no more in production, no point then because buying second hand helicopters is out of the question.
  5. Stupid question I guess. I don't follow helicopters very much, but is the Bell Huey still in use/production?
  6. These are shots of 14R from a different perspective - inside a plane.
  7. Please correct me if I am wrong. The Nuri is based on the S61 Sikorsky helicopter which is normally called Sea King elsewhere. From its name it is normally used at sea for ASW (Anti Submarine Warfare) and SAR (Search and rescue). From what I read only the Malaysian, Danish and Egyptian armed forces use them as troop transporters. During the Falklands war the British army brought along their Westland Sea King primarily for ASW and SAR. Their troop transport helicopters were the Chinooks. But many of the Chinooks were destroyed by the Argentines leaving the British with no choice but to use the Sea Kings as transporters like what the Malaysian armed forces had been doing. The Brits won the war, didn't they?
  8. Guys, the picture of Kwek applying the sun tan taken by Emperor Jonathan is easily the best post in this thread. But if you all go back to the beginning you'll see that I was the first person to post Kwek's photo (post No. 12 - sorry for the quality, using my Sony Digicam). So I deserve credit too. From the moment I met Kwek I know he is a hilarous person, God bless him!
  9. When the picture was taken I'd already left. But at least now I know who is who.
  10. My contribution... Pieter and Kwek enjoying every moment.. Follow the leader! While you all were spotting planes I was spotting these. Maybe my mind was still on the burning Police truck. Never forget my own AK I think many of you missed these... China 330 And Kuwait 340 It was fun with you guys around. Bye for now.
  11. AFAIK it was the idea of our (Negeri Sembilan) former Executive Councillor (EXCO) in charge of Tourism. He had been replaced. It looks like the new fella has different ideas.
  12. I don't bother. Seeing them flying around is satisfying enough. If they use our fuel and maybe pay parking fees that's money to the country. What about service facilities?
  13. Malaysian Airlines (734, DC-10, 332, 333) Pelangi (F50) Merpati (F28) Garuda (F28) All Nippon Airways (ANA) (A321) Air Nippon (ANK) (735) Air Asia (733, yes no 320 yet!)
  14. No worries there. Terengganu has a lot of money, Petronas money.
  15. Trying to do an Azahan on my AK and on this CX 330 Never mind MU, you still have the local double to win Is this AK's latest? Xiamen with new nose? Arrivals
  16. Shots taken on 26th April 2007 - Agong's Installation holiday. For Malaysia it is 50 years of Independence.. For Hong Kong, 10 years of Special Administrative Region (thanks Sneeze for the info)... So this is the the CX plane for spotters to spot But for Asia it is 20 million guests Figures 50 and 10 together Thai 330 leaving Maskargo 747 rotates Qatar 300 Very early rotation for this Sri Lankan 330 Myanmar MD-80 Amazing Alpha Foxtrot Pieter Early rotation too for this 3M Gulfstream (thanks for Norman for the info) No need to clarify on this AFM Weather men letting go a weather baloon from the weather station, the red one it is. PFA Player and Young Player of the year Ronaldo, Fletcher, Rooney and Rio Ferdinand with hair Enjoy
  17. I went to the weather station yesterday. Made a stop at the pond first to catch some arrivals. Since they all touched down at 14L I post their photos here. Thai 330 in new colours. Cathay, also 330 AK's Amazing 320 50 years of Independence Myanmar MD-80? Is this a Lear? Where from? Qatar 300 Just near the ERL bridge caught this Sri Lankan 330 belly. 14R next
  18. Gavin, the Biman took off from 14L ot 14R? I was passing through Elite on the way to Shah Alam yesterday. I saw arrivals were on 14L with one MH 737 arriving on 14R.
  19. Well, Gerd Muller once a feared German football striker wore the No.13 jersey and he scored lots and lots of goals.
  20. Anybody knows how much does MAB charge parking fees, if there's any for the private jets?
  21. Just a layman's idea. Now that we are having a plane to repaint why not paint it in special colours, not like Hibiscus or Heliconia, but for VMY07 or 50 years of Merdeka. Then we spotters have something to look forward too other than the barge, Star Alliance, Sari girl....
