  1. and also for better coverage for LiveATC. haha!
  2. And if I remember correctly, 4 AK, 1 MH and 1 D7 diverted to Subang. Another AK diverted to JHB.
  3. Hey Ikman, I guess so. Was the last to leave the plane upon arrival at KCH.
  4. I think I saw you, saw a bunch of AK staff singing near the arrival area. Do you happen to remember what song were they singing? Kinda catchy. No worries, I had Kolo Mee and Laksa for breakfast as well on that day at Chong Choon cafe.
  5. I was on their inaugural flight to KCH on Saturday. Nothing special on that flight, only received a reusable water bottle from Boeing as a souvenir. No water canon salute when arrived in Kuching, only natural water canon salute (was raining in KCH). Anyway, heard this over the radio this morning, BFM interviewing the CEO of OD, Chandran Rama Muthy. http://bfm.my/malindo-air-chandran-rama-muthy-2013-03-27.html
  6. I was at the other side of the road,beside the river. right at the entrance to the original morning spot. I think I saw that guy also when I left around 11am.
  7. Same shots to share from today. XU-TSC. BB Airways operated by Tonlesap Airlines 9M-XAA PH-BFW And the star of the day... 9M-MXA
  8. Nice one! Any chance for other 'junior' members to join any future coverage (MH OneWorld livery) with the 'senior' members? Or is only exclusive to the 'seniors'?
  9. I believe the B738 is being repainted at KUL.
  10. KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 23 — Subang Skypark Sdn Bhd is set to embark on an ambitious RM420 million infrastructure development plan to transform the former Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, now known as Subang Skypark, into a full-fledged aerospace city by 2015. Its executive director, Tan Sri Ravindran Menon, said the company was planning to utilise between four hectares and 4.8 hectares of land opposite Terminal 3 to build a boutique hotel, an aviation museum and a theme park as part of a retail mall. “We are in the final round of talks with our expert joint-venture partner, a local established player in the retail and hotel industry. “The development, named Skypark Nexus, will have an approximate built-up area of one million square feet and will rejuvenate the airport’s branding as well as enhance the wholesomeness of customer experience in the airport and its surrounding areas,” he told Bernama. Ravindran said all negotiations were expected to be concluded by year-end and work was expected to commence in January. He added that Skypark Nexus, which would be completed in 24 months, was budgeted to cost between RM300 million and RM350 million. He said the proposed retail mall and hotel would be between four and five storeys high and Subang Skypark was now talking to the local government to widen the main roads fronting the proposed development to avoid traffic congestion. While describing the project as a perfect public-private sector partnership, Ravindran said the cost would be financed through internal fundings and bank borrowings. “The special aspect in the development is that there will be a bridge linking the mall and the terminal building, a concept rarely seen in city airports worldwide,” he said, adding that Subang Skypark would invest more than RM70 million to build five new hangars across the current airport runway. “We have just awarded the contracts and the hangars will be sprawled over 12 hectares across the runway. The work has begun and we expect them to be operational by June next year. “These hangars will be for parking and maintenance, repair and operations of both private and corporate jets. Each of the hangars can accommodate up to five aircraft at any one time,” he said. He added the new facilities would elevate Subang Skypark to be on par with other city airports and corporate aviation operators worldwide. Since most aviation-related corporation headquarters were situated in the surroundings of Subang Skypark, Ravindran said Subang would be better known as an aerospace city in the next three years. “We want to be a fine example to Malaysia Airports on how to develop a city airport. This place will surely boom in years to come as all aviation-related investments will come to this area. “There are also plans to establish an aviation technical college, of which Measat Satellite Systems Sdn Bhd is currently looking at that proposal,” he said. Subang airport was officially opened to traffic on August 30, 1965, replacing the old Sungai Besi Airport. Before the 1998 opening of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Sepang, the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport served as Kuala Lumpur’s main international airport. The airport underwent renovation work at Terminal 3 from February 2008 and was completed in October 2009, and was later renamed Subang Skypark, which is the current hub for Berjaya Air and Firefly. — Bernama http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/business/article/subang-skypark-to-spend-rm420m-to-develop-old-subang-airport/
  11. From Malaysia Airlines Facebook page: Malaysia Airlines flight MH1/17 August 2012 that departed London Heathrow at 2215 hours for KL International Airport (KLIA) with 340 passengers (including 6 infants) returned and landed safely at Heathrow at 2319 hours. The operating crew of the B747-400 aircraft took this decision due to a technical problem with its No. 2 engine. In the best interest of the safety of the passengers, it was decided that the flight should not proceed to KLIA. Malaysia Airlines provided ground transfers and full board hotel accommodation in London for all the passengers and will keep them informed of the alternative travel arrangements for their flight to KLIA. The national carrier of Malaysia extends its apologies to all passengers for the unexpected disruption to their flight plans. Customers are advised to check latest flight status with Malaysia Airlines at its 24 hours Call Centre (1300 88 3000 for calls from within Malaysia and +603 7843 3000 for call from outside Malaysia) and online at http://bit.ly/MHflightstatus
