This little monster came 'equipped' with licence plate and road tax sticker. So, she's road-worthy, I see...
Can it support local fire-brigade for nearby fire emergencies?


It will be interesting to find out the engine capacity and the road tax amount (if personally owned) of this tender and the Dodge Ram truck. To be able to support such an acceleration at those weight, I'm sure they are at least equipped with a big V8.

Also those airport AFRS will not be able to support domestic fire brigade as the equipment are different. They are more specialized for aircraft crash and rescue. The people might be able to help, though.

Thanks, Ashmil and Mizi, i'll keep adding up more soon.

Yes, 'MAKTAB' is still flying, not affected by the crash at UUM. I have insiders information that the 'airshow' was actually 'unauthorized'...

Idham, is the Kedah Flying Club still active? Would love to photograph their Scottish Aviation Bulldogs in June.
Perdana Two probably to Alor Setar this morning around 0815, then DPM will fly in a helicopter to Kompleks Belia & Sukan Negeri, Kangar (STA:0845).

MIR, long time didn't hear any info about the KFC, I'll check with my fren later.

And regarding the PERDANA Two, yes, he came between AK and MH...

Only four today from AOR.. :rolleyes:

Posted Image

PERDANA TWO. She flares and touch down at the middle of runway, and stop almost to the end of runway.
Super smooth touch down by the pilot...tabik spring... :lol:
Posted Image

MH 1208 from KUL coming in heavy this morning, can compare with AK above. Struggling to flare, maybe FO in control...
Posted Image

And off AK goes, and off me too, leave before MH.
Perdana Two stays behind I think...
Posted Image

p/s: Thanks for viewing guys. And comments are most welcome. I am still new to DSLR, i do much of the editing on my PC which is not so good practice for a DSLR photographer. Most profesional photographer like you all do most of the editing on site, on the camera it self and shooting the 'edit-not-required' image quality. ;)

Later he flew in the Black Hawk (M46-02) from Alor Setar to Kangar. RMAF's Agusta AS-61(M39-01) also flew to Kangar this morning as the back-up heli.

Yes, too bad, I am not ready for it...actually during that time I'm ready for AK taking off, and it would be above the fence line...


A few more from today's spotting...9M-MQN from KUL, as MH 1203.

Touch down, I miss just a split second to get the perfect smokin'...

Head-on...I love this angle...and I hope y'all also do like it...hehehe...

p/s: Comments are most welcome. Today I found the most optimum setting for my camera. Images only has been cropped and centered. Non has done to the color. Plus, I bought a new lense, el-cheapo Tamron 70-300mm. :)

Nice..nice.. love the frontal shot with the terminal in the background :good: Did you photographed that from Pulatibang? I'd like to suggest those shots need a lil bit of leveling. Check out the photo editing guide by Norman. :)
