Hi Hakan, thanks for sharing those lovely photos.

I like the row of TK planes view from top.

Do keep the forum alive with your photos. Most of us here are "prohibited" from going to airport for plane spotting.

Hi Chaity , Hi Samuel Chy..thanks for your comments. As you know I am not a professional spotter...just I am trying to do my best when I fly somewhere and in limited conditions of airports with my cell phone. Thats all. Sometimes I am really lucky by I took the picture. :)

Anyway last 5 years I had a lot of flight, most of them domestic with the same destination but a few abroad. I belive, someday I will be join with you in there :)

Thank you for sharing, Hakan. I am glad that you still are able to hold your job and able to fly! 

We are in lockdown here and not able to get to KUL - traffic is also very bad, most flights are cargo ones. The upside is that we are seeing more cargo airlines in KUL!

Hello Flee,

I am expecting good news from Malaysia but according by your words, pandemic condition is still continue go on. Last 10-12 month was terrific in here. Our factory  did not closed but working performance dropped to minimum. Thanks god, we had abroad project and we did do that. Domestic market almost stopped! all construction sites have been locked, offices in the plasa building were empty! since end of the 2020, we completed project in UK...we have been stuck in London last December, because of when covid rised up in UK, Turkish Government stopped the flight to/from UK! Our flight has been cancelled! 5 days later, TK begin some flights in limited conditions and we arrived back to Istanbul 5 days before new year.Then UK border totally closed. Still we have projects in London and waiting for flights open...the worst, I am not supporting to vaccination. Probably, if the borders open to Turkey , vaccination would be mandatory!

As far as I understand, flights turning back much more normalize because if I heard engine roars more often when they flyover our house. During last 8-10 months, I was hearing just only birds flaps! According by reports, daily flights increasing day by day. Our president said that today, all restriction will ve remove at 1st of June but masks and social distance will be use for a while.

Hi Hakan,

Thank you for letting us understand the situation in your country. Malaysia is still under lockdown because our hospitals are full of Covid-19 patients. We are supposed to stay at home and only essential activities are allowed. Offices are closed and only some factories are able to open. Travel more than 10 km is not allowed. Our vaccination rate is still less than 10% and progressing very slowly. Most governments don't seem to realise that speeding up vaccination will mean that the country can return to some normality sooner. So sad!

Please take care and I hope that you can join us again in KUL in the near future!
