Are the A330 & B777 charter flight? I thought MAS no longer bring in the bigger birds to Kuching?

Not really charter flight but the peak time flight is upgraded to A330 and B777 during this school holiday

As Zamir said, those flights were not really chartered flights.The school holidays was not only the factor which led to the upgrading of MH flight. The holidays was just one of the factors.

If I'm not mistaken, today (7th June) will be the last day that MAS is sending their widebodies here. And what a way to finish off than to send the Trippie.

While waiting for the main catch to arrive..

And here she is..watching her land is like watching a medium class airplane landing in slow motion.

I had been spotting for the whole day. However, it is a great experience. :D

These are the shots that I took just now.

7/6/2015

I spotted this heavy at the roadside that leads to the DCA's HQ.

Then, these shots were taken at the cafe which is located on the upper floor of Kuching Sentral.

So far, it is a good spotting location where we can spot departures. Sometimes a plane may hold at intersection A due to traffic, so we can only expect its belly. Hopefully, the sun is not blocked by clouds.
