SZB - FIFA World Cup™ Trophy Tour 2014

Recommended Posts

Time flies as our coverage for the trophy plane 4 years ago in this thread at KUL --> http://www.malaysianwings.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=13956&hl=world was still in my mind.

 

Ong was busy and unable to attend this event. At the very last minute, WT Liew and myself was on leave to cover for him. :pardon:

Many thanks to MAB, event organizer and the PR company and their teams to allow us to cover the event.

 

I will let the photos do the talking from here.

 

Media arrival at 1400 at SZB VIP lounge at Gate 38

Event started around 1500 with speech by Mr Argustinus Gunadharma, Franchise Director of Coca Cola Far East Ltd Malaysia

Heavy rain started at around 1700 and the AC is on tow to Transmile hangar in the rain

Concluded my coverage for the event. Perhaps Liew have more shots to show when he is free.

 

Many thanks to Mike Tayaa, David Ong-Yeoh & Koh Mayanne both from PR, for making this a memorable event for the start of 2014.

 

FYI, the above aircraft will depart SZB 6 Jan 2014 Mon 0900 to CGK.
