I am going spotting this Thursday morning. Off from Serdang at 9 am.

As I read this thread, I still have questions. I remember there is one day in the week when single runway is in operation. When is it? Is it in the morning and most probably 14R?

Any reccomendation to my trip? Where I can get best traffic and better shots?

Thanks!

Waa ... I really dont know where is this location

Last time at KLIA, my friend and I rent the taxi and ask the driver to sent us at the 'seberang runaway' but never find the way ..

I try to post some pics spotting at KIA Kuching ..

Last time, I was called 'gila ka nanga belon terbang' by people who pass the that road .

Nowadays, there are so many spotters like me ..

Wahh,Really ar,Nizam??

For all MWingers here,'gila ka nangga belon terbang' is a sarawakian malay dialect which means 'Crazy to see aircraft flying'.Note the 'belon'word.Here,in Sarawak 'belon' means Aircraft.

Hi guys,

I am new in this board and I would like to introduce myself. My name is Tamon Takeoka, I am from Germany and I am 22 years of age. I am planing a visit to KUL possibly in September flying in from Japan. Lots of nice pics can be seen on Airliners and I thought about flying there. I have a few questions before I decide to come, would be pleased if you guys can help me out !

1) Traffic amount during daytime. Comparable to SIN,HKG or BKK ? Chance to see the Hibiscus and blue 777 during daytime ?

2) Cargo movements during daytime?

3) Spotting officially allowed or not ?

4) Chances of getting sent away from the known spots - any consequences similar to Dubai ?

5) two runways - meaning both used for landings and takeoffs or seperated ?

these would be some of the questions, thanks in advance for answers and many greets from DUS in Germany

greets

Tamon Takeoka

p.s. my pics at A.net in case you would like to "check" who I am...

Herzlich wilkommen zu Malaysianwings, Tamon wink.gif

Was in KUL two weeks ago, and let me try to answer your queries as best as I can:
1) daytime traffic much less than SIN, HKG KUL...10pm-12midnight would be a busy period, though laugh.gif
2) lot's of MASKargo flights, with an odd BR, CV, JL and UPS flight
3) as long as you don't 'trespass' fences/signs, they won't bother you...
4) see above: no similarity to DXB experienced yahoo.gif
5) 14R/32L out of use currently, so all traffic done on runway 14L/32R...

Enjoy your spotting in KUL good.gif

Cheers,

Pieter...

Hi Norman and Pieter,

thanks alot for the informations. This sounds indeed very good, I will decide to come or not in the next weeks, still can't decide if I chose KUL or HKG...It would be very nice to catch up with you guys at KUL, so I guess the best time to come would be on a weekend ?

thanks and greets from Germany

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 sad.gif

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

greets

Tamon

"Takeoka", could that be a Japanese surname by any chance?

Tamon,

Care to share some of your Russian shots here, also share how spotting is done there (you need Russian 'spotter' contacts, etc.) ??
