Thanks for the great shots. This one being the first Nuri built certainly qualifies as an old one - delivered in 1967 - 43 years old!

Don't know whether a.net accept those shots or not... hehe

I parked on the smart tunner maintenance access road,

but I saw several vehicles parked on emergency lane on the highway..

causing slight traffic jam... <_>

Some decommissioned RMAF aircrafts which i photographed last week..

Army Museum, Port Dickson

A-4PTM Skyhawk (M32-18) and two Alouette III (M20-23 & M20-26)

M3218_portdic.jpg

 

Canadair Tebuan outside the museum's compound, i believe this aircraft was at MINDEF, Kuala Lumpur before it is brought to Port Dickson.There's also a Caribou next to it.

m2205pd1.jpg

Universiti Putra Malaysia, Serdang

 

Aircraft boneyard ?? Caribou(M21-15), Skyhawks (M32-11 & M32-25)

M2115_sdg.jpg

 

Very sad to see this Skyhawk end up like this :(

TIGDUA.jpg

 

There's also RMAF's first Bell 47G between the academic buildings.

m2601sdunk.jpg

Simpang Airport (Sungai Besi)

 

The museum's latest display,M20-05. There are now two Alouette III at the RMAF museum, the other one is FM-1316, which is still in terrible condition :angry:

m2005_wmkfETE.jpg

 

SME Aero Tiga, Malaysian made trainer aircraft. I guess the whole Aero Tiga fleet have now been decommissioned..

M4201_WMKF.jpg

 

Another Aero Tiga is still in the museum's workshop. The instrument panel is empty.

M4212_WMKF.jpg

 

Thanks for viewing :drinks:

Many thanks for posting the museum and UPM photos. When I visited the Army Museum last November the Tebuan was still in the car park and the second Alouette covered in bubble wrap.

The RMAF's Cessna 402B fleet have been decommissioned last month after 35 years of service. Out of eight 402B,one is stored here in Simpang, reported that one will be given to the Air Force College and the remaining 6 are awaiting disposal.

I was informed that this Aermacchi MB-339 arrived Simpang on a low loader truck around early August last year.

M3412_wmkf_090111mw.jpg

 

Most of the aircrafts inside the museum's hangar were shifted outside again :huh: Whats left inside were only two MD3-160 Aerotigas (M42-01, M42-12) and this Eagle ARV.

M5101_wmkf_090111.jpg

 

The Tiger Moth is now stored in a smaller hangar next door..

Cessna 402 was, apparently, involved in a landing accident: look at the props... :blink:
