Sandakan (SDK/WBKS) Spotting

Recommended Posts

In 2010 I mentioned a Britten-Norman ex-VH-ZZT is going to be delivered to Malaysia (9M-LYG). Finally, I got it in Sandakan earlier this year.. :yahoo:

So that was what the Dragonair was for.. was aware of it's arrival but had no idea why did it come from SDK...left for Singapore as KA 8066, arrived at Gate C20 and departed for Hong Kong soon after.

Consider quite an exciting year for spotting in SDK with all these unscheduled flights..... The Sultan of Brunei brought his B767 to SDK earlier in late Feb too...

Btw, here were the details for those 5 chartered flights by Azamara Cruise 2 weeks ago:

 

(1) BI 4831 BWN/SDK -----> ETA 0600

BI 4831 SDK/BWN

 

(2) KA 8067 HKG/SDK------> ETA0900

KA8066 SDK/SIN

 

(3) BI 4833 BWN/SDK ------> ETA0920

BI 4834 SDK/BWN

 

(4) BI 4835 BWN/SDK ------> ETA1240

BI 4836 SDK/BWN

 

(5) BI 4837 BWN/SDK ------> ETA 1600

BI 4838 SDK/BWN

 

 

hopefully someone can share some photos of these planes in SDK.....

 

 

cheers

Teo CK,thanks for the infos and weblink. I've never seen so many people at the check-in counters in SDK before.

I was also informed there were two air ambulance flights to Sandakan this year. One came in last January to transport a boat collision victim and the other came in earlier this month to transport an injured cruise ship crew to Manila.

Spot on MIR..... managed to catch a glimpse of that chartered flight back n Jan (the incident involved a family fren of mine)....... Not sure what was the aircraft registration. It was heading to Singapore btw.

Safe to assume this is related to the MV Azamara Quest incident ?

Yup, that's right.

 

This maybe a bit old news, but FY services to SDK were good while it lasted only 4 months....

 

Notice the landing on RWY 26 on their 1st flight - special request from FY captain (that's right, there is no ILS for RWY 26, only for RWY 08).

This could be the chartered flight for ferrying the injured Azamara Cruise crew to Manila....

Found a vid of HMSF A340 (V8-BKH) doing TnGs and Hornet buzzing the tower : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7OcoHvFgSQ

 

Came across Karthiyani Air on the net..i guess one of the Cessna 402 formerly operated by RMAF will be based in SDK later this year..

Yea..seems the BBJ2 has become the official chariot lately in lieu of the ACJ. I have not seen the ACJ since early Feb and the BBJ is crippled in AOR.
