KUL 32L 2019

Recommended Posts

The new spotting structure is ready and opened?

 

 

Anyone can show us how the new 'observation deck' looks ?

 

The structure is ready and work still in progress. It is not open yet with workers working there.

If you ask nicely, they may allow you to be on the platform as long as not obstructing the work.

No guessing from the rego, VT-INR, who was the previous owner. Surprised to see her earlier today, going for a 2-hour+ test flight.

Today marks a new day in Airasia Group's history - it is now upgrading its fleet of aircraft to the larger (50 more pax) Airbus A321-200 NX. This will help it provide more capacity and reduce CASK on its routes. The first aircraft, registered 9M-VAA, is sporting a "3, 2, 1 take off" special livery. It touched down in KUL from XFW and ASB.

Good one Flee. I was positioned at the Anjung Spotter area to get her first landing on Malaysia soil (runway)

It is kind of difficult now to spot at Anjung Spotter as the reflective 'CDs' and wires are visible in the picture frame.

Even moving nearer to the fence with a ladder, the wire is visible for wide body aircraft.

Thankfully, for narrow body, such as the A321neo, it can be 'cropped' away.

Ah Ong, thanks for sharing the above photos about the latest development at Anjung Spotter. It seems like within the organisation, there are departments against each other. Anjung Spotter is there which is great, yet some genius decided to hang wires and CDs to obstruct the vantage views.

The above development certainly bringing me to link to the current New Malaysia kind of development. The head carried out so initial plans but on the other level, they will derail or make the plans to fail.

Of course I am not saying the above Anjung Spotter issue is political linked, just how I feel about the similarity of the two.

Well, thanks for the Anjung Spotter but I will have to move on to other places until the wire and CDs are gone.

It's back to the WX station 1 and 2. At least now there is less interference at both sites.

For me, I had a total of ONE serious spotting session at Anjung Spotter. After that, ops changed to runway 14R and that was the end of spotting there. Now we have to wait for the wires to degrade and snap... frustration once more!

I know that safety is important and we are fortunate not to have many bird strike incidents at KUL. But surely, there are other tools that can be deployed to control the bird population. They should drain the lake next to 32L because birds love fishing there too. If the lake is not there, fewer birds will frequent the area.
