Finally uploaded them all. Very hard to see 2 B734, 1 B738 and 1 A320 all together in TWU :)

Finally there is a thread for TWU! :)  I should put some of my pics up, but they are all too ordinary and routine though!

 

That BI A320 bird, is that a charter flight too?  

 

The C-17 bird must be the biggest aircraft to have landed in TWU since the opening of the new airport.

 

Never seen TWU so busy with so many "big birds" (B737s and A320) :D

Anyone know why the UAE C-17 visited?

 

An unusual place for it to visit.

Finally the thread for my hometown airport..but to spot at this airport is one hell of a chore, 30 min drive from town..the old airport was the best..unobstruxted view to the runway/tarmac.

Why the UAE Air Force, though. Did they lend armaments to use?

The BI was a special "rescue" flight to bring back a group of university students from Brunei on a study trip to east Sabah. I think two from the group drowned, and I believe the bodies were transported by the CN-235 whilst the rest travelled on the 320.
