Thanks for sharing KBR traffic... :)

 

Try to poke the A480 lens through the fence

to shoot the aircraft on the runway, you'll get

a clean shot of the aircraft... ;)

Talking about poking the lens through the fence, actually the fence hole quite small, cannot go through, just close enough not to see it. If lens with rotating focus, it could damage the lens.

I think they use a special kind of fence with very small hole....

Ikman, if it is a normal digital camera then even easier. I would expect the lens is much smaller than a DSLR.

Unless you can't get nearer to the fence because of other obstacles like a drain.

If the fence with small hole and unable to poke thru, still able to shoot as long as the lens opening is not blocked. ;)

 

Looking from the photos, the fence looks like the normal chain-link fence where we have in Subang Airport.

Yup, at KBR they have MHS Aviation branch for Carigali Hess project if not mistaken. Wetstar Aviation office (flight operations) also available at KBR.

I thought MHS had shutdown its operation in KBR after Weststar won the contract to shuttle the offshore workers .......

 

I could be wrong though ......

After 51% of MHS stake now owned by Boustead Holdings Berhad (BHB), I think they will continued operation at KBR. On Aug 20, Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd awarded a contract to MHS to provide rotary wing aircraft, equipment and services (for heavy type aircraft EC225) for 10 years with an option to extend for another five years commencing April 1, 2011.

Today afternoon onboard AK5286 KUL-KBR (9M-AHG) for another weekend holiday at hometown. Once safely landed at WMKC I saw a special aircraft parked at WMKC apron opposite VVIP boarding hall. I guess they are Kelantan Royal VVIP (based on yellow carpet available) onboard Bombardier BD-700 1A10 Global Express (9M-TAN). As usual, I went to SIPA Anjung Tinjau which a good and closer place to take some aircraft photo.
