Penang (WMKP/PEN) 2009

Recommended Posts

New year, hence a new thread. Been a very quiet start to the new year here in Penang. Weather has been OK for the past few days but there just weren't any interesting subjects, until today... finally.

 

CX692 operated by A340-300 B-HXE.

Well, it's not too late to wish all of you a very Happy New 2009 and may more interesting subjects fly into PEN!

Affirmative, next AY1963 will be on 12JAN. STA 1845h.

 

Also FYI, TG will be operating a new schedule effective 17JAN09.

TG426 (STD: 0810h) Days . 2 3 . 5 6 .

TG422 (STD: 2205h) Days . . 3 . . 6 7

i.e. TG will not nightstop on Wed, Sat and Sun.

 

CX692 on Tuesdays is now filed as EQV (equipment varies) and will revert back to A330 at the end of January 2009.

It is located Just beside the excavation side, you just have to find a way into that area, it is not too hard to find to access road. You can drive you car all the way in there.
