First proper spotting session for the new year.  Starting off with a small mosquito.

9M-LCS formerly PK-LDG of Batik Indonesia.  Probably roped in to as Malindo has allocated 1 B737-900 for charter duty to Japan since end of 2019.

Finally able to photograph 9M-VAA in good light.  Been trying to get her ever since her schedule changed to afternoon arrival.  Weather hasn't been kind until today.

The icing on the cake.  Private jet bringing Taiwanese megastars like Lee Hom, Power Station and David Tao back to TPE after a private function the night before.  Didn't get a glimpse of the megastars as I was taking the photos of 9M-VAA arrival above.

The good start continues :-

LoongAir first flight from Xian to BKI.  Some say it's charter but others say it's scheduled.

Throwback Jan 2017, a host of VIPs including HRH the Sultan of Brunei flew in with their own metal to attend the wedding of then CM of Sabah's daughter.  We were treated to a full house at terminal 2 including the B748 BBJ and 9M-III etc.

Fast forward 3 years later another wedding saw full house terminal 2 again.  This time HRH brought in his newer B787 BBJ V8-OAS.

3 already? yesterday evening only spotted 2 on ground. which is RAT and RAN.
anyway, should be aircraft relocation only, to spare some bay at T1?

Probably the result of route suspension due the virus outbreak.

TF-FIW parked at T2 for 2 nights after dropping off the ultra rich in Sandakan as part of luxurious round the world trip.  Earlier she came in from Cebu.  After Sandakan the tour headed to Jaipur.

Hi Guys,

I noticed Xiamen Airlines has been doing several flights from SZX lately, I thought our border is still closed? Or is it COVID-19 related?

And also as at the end of May 30, MH432 had been doing KUL-BKI-HKG route utilising A333.

Could be cargo only flights - airlines are only flying about 4 or 5% of their normal schedules and a lot of belly cargo capacity was lost. So there is a need for some cargo flights to operate.

curious on what's there to do in Sandakan for this type of guests ? Any pointers on who handles the ground tour portion ... I'm assuming it's a local outfit.

with international travel out of the question due to COVID19, would be great to see what we've been missing out domestically

not sure who handle for the ground tour, but they stay at Four Point. from one of the profile i found, they went to Sepilok Orang Utan Rahabitation center, and another day went to kinabatangan rivercruise. IIRC their tour reach here days earlier as they skipped Chengdu, due to the outbreak
