Finally there is a thread for TWU! :) I should put some of my pics up, but they are all too ordinary and routine though!

 

That BI A320 bird, is that a charter flight too?

 

The C-17 bird must be the biggest aircraft to have landed in TWU since the opening of the new airport.

 

Never seen TWU so busy with so many "big birds" (B737s and A320) :D

When were the photos snapped for the BI 320 and UAE C17?

 

BI was taken early of March, while C-17 was mid of March,i believe she was here for Ops Daulat..

Both pics were taken by my friend, credits to him :acute:

The BI was a special "rescue" flight to bring back a group of university students from Brunei on a study trip to east Sabah. I think two from the group drowned, and I believe the bodies were transported by the CN-235 whilst the rest travelled on the 320.
