Recommended Posts

Happy New Year everyone!!! Here's the 2018 entry.

 

First arrival was FedEx's 767 from Singapore.

It then got a bit quieter towards the 10am side, so decided to head to the departures to get this triple 7.

Thankful that Sriwijaya came shortly before MH as it did become a good test subject.

PK-MYZ - Boeing 737-330(QC) - My Indo Airlines
Note: Rare traffic at Penang. According to Neptune Air Facebook page, "Neptune Air's sister company, Indonesian-registered, MyIndo Airlines (PK-MYZ/B737-300F), covering for Neptune Air's scheduled flights (utilising N7 callsign) while 9M-NEF goes for scheduled maintenance C-check at AAT SZB Hangar for approx 4-6 weeks. It comes with a set of 4 crew from Indonesia."

I spotted this aircraft last week and she was parked at Cargo bay (far end of the terminal. Cargo side area). I think she will be here until Mid of February 2018.

Was wondering carrier that was on my flight to Subang last week. This one parked near ATC?

 

Yes, that's correct, SS Lee. The aircraft was parked just in front of the Tower.

N181CW - Diamond DA42 NG Twin Star

 

This diamond 42 VI NG landed at Penang International Airport around 12:10pm today - 31 Jan 2018. They will visit to WMKP every few months. Quite rare traffic.

Nice shots Dennis. If you are lucky, you can get a few of those DA-42s in a row. Seen a "fleet" of 4 of them from HM Aerospace making a stop here before heading back to Langkawi. PEN is one of their destinations for cadets to gain hours.

 

Qatar's Dreamliner will be arriving at about 230 pm on Tuesday for their inaugral. :yahoo: (although probably not officially the first time as they did divert to PEN from KL some time back due to weather)

Oh isn't ? They will taxi and park their training aircraft at GA parking bay there? That's really interesting! I guess they only operate during weekdays where it is hard for me to spot them. Anyway, thanks for info, Lee! :drinks:

Dennis, I remember spotting them on a Saturday, so you just might be in luck. Nice catch of the Dreamliner. Still waiting for my chance.

 

 

Back for another session after some time. Some new catches. This was the main catch of the day. The P2F A333 (Ex MH Bird).

Look at how clean she is. The full length of the 330, without any chin blisters.

Air Hong Kong A330-322P2F (EI-HEA)

 

The freighter taxied fast enough to be in the same frame as the Korean 77F.

Rotation of the 77F.

Korean Air Cargo B777-FB5 (HL8285)

 

It was back to back arrivals after this. Now to a few of the usual traffic. SilkAir's 738.

 

39696578085_45ea9a038c_c.jpg

SilkAir B737-8SA (9V-MGM)

 

Easy way to rebrand. Stickers.

 

38781439860_b4c5d33d5e_c.jpg

Scoot A320-232 (9V-TRK)

 

This next one was a real surprise. Seeing it on FR24 somewhere off Phuket, descending, meaning that there was a high chance it was headed to Penang.

 

38781422520_465e940773_c.jpg

 

Coming all the way from Baku. She used the entire runway length.

Here's the younger sibling giving way to the Queen.

Ending this post with these two.

Here's to more fruitful sessions.

i observe Air Hong Kong A330-300F EI-HEA likes to flying circuit around WMKP airspace during lunch time. Is it some functional verification or to clock up pilot's flight hour? Kinda curious.

Yeah, I noticed that too. However, not sure why they did that. Maybe that's the good timing after offload cargo and less traffic compare to afternoon flight? And soon need to busy for evening departure...

Nope. It was parked within Strait Quay ship port area. It was here for attending Penang Rendezvous 2018 event.

Always wanted to spot this aircraft but it's hardly can be tracked in FR24. Finally I managed to spot it in FR24 and with some luck it was landed at Penang Int. airport. Quickly grab my camera and took this amazing shot.

The Piaggio P.180 Avanti is an Italian executive transport aircraft with twin turboprop engines mounted in pusher configuration. It seats up to nine people in a pressurized cabin, and may be flown by one or two pilots. [Wikipedia source]
