  1. What happens is during festivities, school holidays, where extra flights are mounted, they add another aircraft to be based in those hubs. On top of that, some are operated as a triangular route which originates from either KUL or JHB. Otherwise the count that I gave is the exact one as of 2 days ago.
  2. BKI - 8 PEN - 4 KCH - 5 JHB - 5 LGK - 0
  3. Short stop today to catch the latest of the D7 birds to be repainted.. 9M-XXB off to KTM bearing the Girls Frontline livery. Cheers!
  4. A rather late post from 30th June..
  5. Nice coverage guys.. Just to chip in a few taken at different angles and different lighting conditions..It was surely a great 5 days having her around in KUL! Arrival into KUL in gloomy morning.. Coming back from CGK in blue skies! Early rotation on its flight to BKK with the last available sunshine for the day. Pushing back for it's final leg to MRU. And off she goes..! Thank you very much.
  6. Time for a new topic.. Rwy 14 & 15 have been in use for about a week now.. Just a special that came in today.. Cheers!
  7. Another short stop today..ANA sent in their R2D2 again for maybe the 3rd time in a week. Arrived from NRT the night before and operated the flight back to HND this afternoon. Cheers & Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri to all MW members!
  8. After a really long hiatus... Switched on the Can On again today... Two unsuspecting targets were coming in.. This Honeywell Test Bed aircraft came in from Guam. Her 2nd (short) visit to KUL. Refuelled and departed about an hour later. Airbus also sent in their A359 F-WXWB (MSN 001). She came in from CHC after performing a series of short runway tests in Wellington. Lion also decided to join in the fun and probably send a somewhat special plane. Their 80th B737NG. UL also dispatched its OW A330. Some regulars.. BA of China. And my last for the day.. 9M-AFV here seen overflying at about 7k feet. Cheers & have a great weekend ahead!
  9. Hi MIR, there's an AN-124 & a IL-76 still parked here as of this afternoon. IL-76 came in from DRW 2 days ago. Made a short stop today. Nothing much to share though except a few. Been coming in regularly to KUL from GYD. This bird has been doing the SUB-KUL-SUB route for a few days already now. Cheers! Hope you enjoyed!
  10. Had a short trip down to HKT over the weekend... A few to share.. The famous Mai Khao beach.. The Thais.. The Europeans.. The Russians.. The bizjets.. The BA of China (as someone had put it) My ride back to KUL - 9M-AJS.. Cheers! Hope you've enjoyed!
  11. Thank you for the kind words, Sam! Just a few more to share in golden sunlight. I left only after there wasn't anymore light left. A few for silhouette lovers.
  12. Some spotting pics @ BKK on Christmas Day. Runway 01 in use and thanks to the BKK winter(!) temperatures were at a max of 29degrees C with blue skies later in the afternoon. Pegas Fly (previously known as Ikar) coming in from St Petersburg PR730 is usually a 343 or 77W or a 333. Fast forward to blue skies hereafter.. QF sent it VH-QPJ - the Gay livery as how some might tend to decipher it. This bird has a new livery - United for Wildlife. Got her in probably the last ray of sunlight. Cheers. Hope you enjoyed!
  13. Starting off this thread in 2018 with a latest repaint. 9M-AJS in its new clothes - promoting the state of Terengganu. Cheers!
  14. Point for today - arrival of 9M-MAC from TLS. Spotters were in every corner all around 32L. Sharing a few from today although weather wasn't on our side. Cheers!
  15. Short stop today.. Delivery flight of this Cebu ATR72. Inbound from CMB with a flight time of 5hrs and 33mins. Boss appears to be travelling somewhere. Wishful thinking for a good bonus this year Light was intermittent here onwards. Left not long later. Cheers!
  16. Since everyone had every angle covered, just a small contribution from my end to this thread.
  17. https://www.atsb.gov.au/publications/investigation_reports/2017/aair/ao-2017-066/ Updated: 23 August 2017 The ATSB is investigating an engine malfunction involving Airbus A300, registered 9M-XXE, near Carnarvon, Western Australia, on 25 June 2017. The aircraft had earlier departed Perth, Western Australia bound for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. While conducting a climb from flight level (FL) 380 to FL 400, [1] a fan blade on the number 1 engine failed resulting in engine damage and significant airframe vibration. Interviews and analysis of recorded flight data, indicated that the flight crew conducted an in-flight engine shutdown and returned to Perth. The shutdown engine continued to rotate in the airflow, resulting in ongoing airframe vibration. The aircraft returned to Perth and landed safely. The engine manufacturer found that a section of the fan blade separated at about one quarter of its length from the blade base. The blade section and associated engine debris were retained within the engine cowls. Examination of the retained fan blade section identified that the separation was likely due to metal fatigue that originated within the blades internal structure. Investigation and analysis of the failure mode are on-going. The findings of the engine manufacturer will be included in the ATSBs draft safety investigation report. The draft report will be provided to relevant parties for comment before the completion and release of the final report.
  18. http://m.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/transport-ministry-tells-malindo-to-settle-airport-tax-arrears KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 5 ― Putrajaya has directed Malindo Air to settle its RM70 million arrears in airport tax payments to Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB). The Star reported that Malindo was issued the directive by the Transport Ministry to settle the monies owed as soon as possible. Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said that there are some disputes regarding the calculations of the taxes owed. However, this should not be a reason for the delay in paying up the dues, he reportedly said. Malindo was recently criticised by Umno leaders and also by Malay rights group Perkasa for not settling its airport tax arrears. The airline has also come under scrutiny over the fact that its current major shareholder is its CEO, Chandran Rama Muthy, and the stakes owned by Indonesian tycoon Rusdi Kirana, leading to claims that the airline is foreign owned.
