  1. Hi folks, Do any of you have any recollections of a RoKAF C130 at Langkawi back on 27 March 2017 arriving from Clark, then over to Labuan on/around 29 March and then up to Kaohsiung on 30 March. Any pics or sightings of which frame it was please? Thanks.
  2. Good shots KSong ! Thanks for uploading and sharing.
  3. PK-LQK departed Subang earlier today at 2055 local for CGK. Reportedly the former 9M-LRC. Can any of you confirm that 9M-LRD is still stored at KUL ? FR seems to suggest so.
  4. Gentlemen, I hear that 9M-LRF became PK-LQM with JT and departed Subang at 1830L today for CGK. Any info or pics? Not found any mention of it anywhere but the flight is there on FR24. Is 9M-LRD that's parked at KUL going to receive the same treatment?
  5. Thanks Tomper. I see 9M-LRF ferried over to Subang this morning. Storage or prep for JT?
  6. Any update on the status of 9M-LRF since its arrival into KUL from Tokyo on the evening of June 29 please? I've heard rumours it's being prepped for Lion Air and won't enter service with Malindo but I don't know how credible it is. Radzi, any info from your corner sir?
  7. Wow! What the heck is going on ?! That's the 3rd change in the space of just over a week! Seeing as it's now got Lion titles I'm expecting the tail to be stripped of the Batik pattern and get the normal Lion Air treatment, although that doesn't explain why they bothered with the Batik Indonesia titles and changed from the Malaysian to the Indonesian flag prior to fly-away. Jahur, please keep us updated sir.
  8. The Batk Indonesia oddball PK-LQJ flew across the ocean to HNL and is currently at Guam, which is odd as they usually use Pohnpei. @ Radzi, are the cost savings from using the island route enough to offset the extra fuel cost? The distance is considerably longer and the Alaska route is renowned for strong westbound headwinds for much of the year too : BFI-HNL-PNI-KUL : 9674 MILES BFI-ANC-NRT-KUL : 8235 MILES BFI-HNL-PNI-BIK-CGK : 9457 MILES BFI-ANC-NRT-CGK : 8498 MILES
  9. Just out of curiosity, is 9M-LRD still awaiting its own set of engines to arrive from CFM?
  10. The pic is up on tykes site now. https://tykesaeroblog.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/batik-indonesia-737-8-max-first-pic.html With due credit etc.
  11. Interesting developments over at BFI : https://twitter.com/TykesAeroBlog/status/878316267614085124 I've heard from one of my sources that the titles have been removed and it now sports Batik Indonesia titles instead. Hopefully some pics from the spotters will be forthcoming soon. It's interesting because Batik Indonesia and Lion Air don't share registration sequences and as PK-LQF is already in full Lion Air cs and the next two Maxes PK-LQH and PK-LQG have both been seen at RNT with evidence of Lion Air cs on their rudders, does this mean that LQJ is going to be an oddball in the sequence for Batik or is something else afoot here? Could Lion Air be rebranding as Batik Indonesia perhaps ?
  12. Gentlemen, the first Lion Air Max 8 is now painted at RNT, registration PK-LQF.
  13. 2nd Max on delivery according to Tyke's twitter with due credit - https://twitter.com/TykesAeroBlog/status/867094043137802240 & https://twitter.com/TykesAeroBlog/status/867099361926426626
  14. Interesting observation. Lion Air seem to have an aversion to certain letter endings as well, namely A-E, N or X.
  15. Thanks for the info Radzi. 9M-LRE missing? Do you still fly for MH or have you moved over to the dark side?
