A correction on my previous post, which is 9th Sep 2016 to 14 Sep 2016 Spotting Log. Didn't notice that. :)

That shinny looking MXR tho, Prest. It has been a while for not spotting at the shophouses.

 

Wow Chris, you are really hardcore brother. The pictures said it all and couldn't agree more with Prestley, your panning memang powerlah, salute!

Thanks guys. Can't afford your salute, Bro Firdaus. :o 9V-TAF is still being operated. Miss those golden old times.

The lighting was not nice as expected, so I managed to do panning shots.

As promised, a throwback from 2010. A lone tiger from the lion island

9V-TAF, wonder if she is still flying today.

 

 

Yes it is, but there is a slight change of livery. It now wears the new Tigerair livery. 8)

Grizzly is the name of the prototypes. Atlas is the name for production aircraft.

 

Yup, and proud of our air force as the only non European operator of the latest tactical lifter albeit not without any issues. According to Malaysian Defence the last of the four aircraft will be delivered by the end of 2017.

Could be large amount of cargo or the usual B722F has gone tech... Good you got it. B762F is very shy and usually only does the night time run to HKG.

It is an honor to present to you..the first A320neo landing shot in Kuching. This aircraft is the second one in Southeast Asia and second to land at an airport in the Kinabalu FIR. Ladies and gentlemen, 9M-AGA.

And I'm sure my partner in crime, Chris has some landing shots of his own. I'll leave it to him :D

The CFM Leap-1A engines are very quiet. We almost heard nothing when the a/c was rolling down 25 with the reverse thrust applied. But it was a sad case for us that they made a right turn to intersection A2 for 25 departure as we expected to get a close up shot of the shinny new engine. Hopefully, they will go for A1 tomorrow, and we get that shot!
