Kickstarting SZB spotting thread for the year 2017...

 

Camera went in for D-check last week. Collected earlier today afternoon and headed for some nice sunny weather spotting at SZB... Lots of biz jets moving in and out today.

Finally opened my 2017 account this morning. Was a bit lazy to go plane spotting lately!  ;)

 

Some fellow MWingers helped to kick me out of bed and we arrived at a foggy SZB. So we went and had some teh tarik before starting our spotting session. There was the usual traffic and then two specials in the intermittent light conditions.

 

9M-FYD has a new coat of paint and special livery - Discover Selangor, The Heart of Malaysia

And then we got a surprise - the Philippine Air Force C-130T

Been hearing them flying all around Penang during the past few days. Awesome getting all 3 of them.

 

Was hoping to catch them at the airport though none appeared.

Saw at the RAAF few days ago... just park near to the main road... many cars park at the road side to enjoy the aircraft...

French Air Force is moving over to SZB after completing their LIMA 2017 appearance.

French president is paying an official visit to Malaysia tomorrow.

 

Just a few shots to share for this evening.

Very nice, Chaity!  :clapping:

 

This morning the Rafale discarded its bulky drop tanks and rocketed into the skies, disturbing the peace of the Subang suburbs. It did a solo and showed off its capabilities to the top brass at the RMAF Subang base...

I noticed, even in Langkawi, the Rafale can light up just one burner....
Nice pics by the way...Subang must have been wide awake Sun and Mon.

Thanks. I think it is possible due to the fact that the Rafale C is a fly by wire aircraft. AFAIK, it does not feature thrust vectoring.

 

Today, the weather took a turn for the worse but the show must go on for the President and PM. Here is the Rafale sitting on the runway awaiting clearance. It sat there for about 10 minutes...

Away we go... Rafale C shows off its all weather capability as the skies opened up!

It has been a busy week at SZB this week!

 

This afternoon saw the arrival of the Breitling DC-3 on its World Tour. The weather was not good and the light was weak. But we had a good number of spotters turning up to greet this grand old lady!
