Hi guys, its time to propose for a gathering for all of us to celebrate Malaysianwings 9th anniversary.

Date will be the last saturday of June which fall on the 28th.

What a busy past two weeks for Malaysian Wings members it has been - Air Force One was in town, the MH370 SAR aircraft returning from Perth, new liveries on civil aircraft, etc. etc. We also had honoured guest spotters visiting from Hong Kong, Indonesia and Japan. It was a wonderful time to see so many new and old faces at our airports again.

 

We are now close to our anniversary and this year, it will be held at KUL. The anniversary will be quite special. With klia2 open, we can explore some different possibilities.

 

Please put your name down on our attendance list below Hope to see you all again soon! :)

MWings 9th Anniversary started off in the morning by the lake side since Rwy 14 in use for past weeks.

 

Weather was a bit gloomy and hazy but the company of MWings members up lifted our spirits

3 spotters from Vietnam like to venture into the tropical bushes for unique shots

Since we have 3 active runways, Rwy 14L arrival is much less comparing to last time. Our friends is making use of the quiet time to shoot other things

28 June 2014, a new day begins at KLIA - it is Malaysian Wings' Ninth Anniversary. :)

The weather was hazy - on my way there I saw the Bomba set up camp along the Elite Highway to fight the peat fire. With landings split between runway 14L and 15, traffic was very slow at where we were - runway 14L. So we had to keep our shutter fingers warmed up by shooting alternative traffic.

Meanwhile, back at the klia2 grounds, our Vietnamese spotters were checking out the cracked drains... ;)

But their real target are some these red planes

After lunch, we headed down towards the Reds' HQ. KS decided to test the track temperature with the rest of us playing paparazzi...

The haze got progressively worse and the light was fading. So Hon Kit decided to "test" my camera/lens and zoomed in on the countryside.

With meaningful shooting curtailed by the haze and bad light, we waited for Captain Radzi's flight to arrive before calling it a day...

Happy 9th Anniversary Malaysian Wings!

 

Looking forward to the 10th on 27 June 2015! :)

Next year will be our 10th anniversary. We should plan big for that. What should be do?

 

I was thinking , next year we should go spotting on a boat in HKG. That would be fun.
