The home-built aircraft was departed from WMKP on 28 October 2017 morning.
They were scheduled to take off at 8.00am. However, they were only seen on tarmac around 8:13am then. 
After doing pre-flight checks etc, they finally lifted off around 9:07am.
They were continue their RTW journey. Wish them clear skies all the way back to origin.
Good bye!

Hi all, United Kingdom of Royal Air Force Airbus A330-243MRTT with registration ZZ336 landed at Penang International Airport this evening around 8:03pm. Prince of Wales, Putera Charles, is here. For those who are around WMKP, go catch her before they depart to next destination.

With the 350 popping in KL, KK as well as in Kuching, I guess it is time for Penang to be in the light as well.

Nice one Dennis. It is a good thing that they are now doing works on TW A. Can get rotation shots at this point.

 

Though judging by the distance it used, I'd say it was a rather light load.

Usually when the MAS A350 light load , they certainly will rotate around taxiway Charlie. Looking forward the second A350 (9M-MAC) come to Penang soon. Not sure when it will be.
 


Special guest today (25 December 2017) - MasKargo, Airbus A332 from Shanghai Pudong International Airport to Penang International Airport as flight MH6163.

Hi Lee, I believe they will operate 9M-MAC for the early flight and the following MH A350 flight will be operate with 9M-MAB. Managed to capture its arrival today as well as departure.

Hey Dennis, very nice catch of MAC.

 

Here are some of my catches over a few days.

 

Had to do one flying overhead. Used a 10mm lens on a crop body.

Here are a few prior to the arrival of MAC on that day. Starting off with UPS with their 757.

Awesome photos as always, Lee. Thanks much for sharing with all of us. 
I was aware of the approach of A400M (as I was tuned into WMKB radar freq).
I think they were here for low flyby before continue their journey to somewhere (most probably to Butterworth AFB). 
The belly shot of MH A350 9M-MAC totally awesome. Thumbs up  :clapping:
