Tamon,

 

Why not combine both airports: see my "Globetrotter" topic for pictures and for some ideas ;)

 

Did a HKG-KUL-BKK triangle trip 2.5 weeks ago...

Hi Pieter,

 

good idea and good destinations but I did 10 days BKK in March already and I doubt that I could get so much new stuff there again...

 

meanwhile I compared the hotel rates at KUL with HKG and at KUL they seem to be much lower which is good for me...a poor student from Germany :(

 

will try to decide next week...thanks so far !

 

greets

Hi Pieter, sure I can do that :D No Russian contacts were needed as the tour was organized and guided by Geroge Pick Travel. They did a good job organising ramp access and flights in Moscow and Nizhni Novgorod. Will post some pics later,

For the benefit of some spotters who've been

asking about the "Ladang Touchdown 14L" location.

Good for afternoon shots... morning=Bad Backlit

 

Please be aware, this place is within a palm estate

that has an owner (MAB perhaps)... and they still harvesting the fruits

So you're on your own here :pardon:

 

Advice... please go in a group if you're first timer

Bring along your umbrella (rain & sun), water, snacks

plastic bags (to take back your rubbish)... and of course

your camera...

 

IPB Image

 

PS.... if your car can be scratched... can drive up to the spotting hill

but parking is limited...

Walking distance from parking shown is about 300m

WohhhoooOoooo London here i come

Oh Jonathan, stop it! I cannot concentrate or remove the thought of going to KLIA for spotting from my head! :rofl:

Seriously, you guys better get all the shots from this no.1 spot before they complete the runway works!!! :drinks:

u mean all planes are landing at 14L and are takeoff at 32R right? :rolleyes:

from the map, which one is which? compared to the 1st map on page1 :huh: i'm still confused on where's the obsevation hill since in the map looks like the observation hill is between Petornal tank and the runway....i've been there once scouting for the observation hill...izz the one on the rocky area....looks kindda far for spotting..leh nampak belon ngak? :p

 

any spotters next weekend? 16/17 September? :yahoo:

All aircraft will takeoff and landing in one direction

so not possible to takeoff from 14L and another landing 32R... sure head-on :nea: :nea:

 

Map on page1 refers to Weather Station and Obs Hill... ie major spotting locations

which are easily accesible. But due to runway upgrading works on 14R/32L

Weather Station is currently temporarily "closed" for spotters... no aircraft :pardon:

 

Obs hill... easy to look for... behind Petronas Station... but Officially Prohibited.

 

The satellite pix above here shows the commonly known as "Ladang" or

"14L Touchdown". Pls read the post for clearer info. I'm not going to repeat myself. :pardon:

There's no case of malu here, Ewan. AFAIK we are all equal here, young or old. I have learnt a lot from this wonderful website.

I think you're in the wrong thread...

This one for spotting guides around KLIA...

 

You can open up a new topic and post your shots,

We're here to share ... and there's nothing to malu about...

 

Why don't you open a thread & I'll transfer your posts here overthere... ;)

Norman,

I'll be in KL between Nov 11th and 18th. How long the other runway is closed for? Would you say prevailing winds dictate the use for 14 more than 32 in November? My trip is already booked but if I will be missing out a lot due to closed rwy than maybe this trip I'll put in more days @ WSSS and I'll need to plan a re-visit in next 6 months there :) . I am really excited to visit KL for first time and get some great local flavor of aviation scene.

BTW thanks for some nice map and directions. :clapping: It will come handy for us non locals.

Raj

Yes, I think MAB owns the whole lot. See map below and note the 'Airport Boundary' line.
