There's a Vans RV-8 which arrived BKI from DPS yesterday. 

Must be the one in terminal 2. Looks very small haha..


Quite quiet compared to the usual one i see in SZB. Only used 2 reverse thrust.

The IL-76 must have spent the night at BKI - saw her parked at one of the bridgeless hammerheads at T1 midnight when I got in

Was he going to Guam - hence the need for a fuel stop?

I watched this clip yesterday at Sky News. I think we still cant see his plane as the weather was mostly cloudy. At least we know what he was doing while cruising above KK.

I don't think they dropped by BKI at all, bird likely had the range  :D

I recall he was meeting with our DPM at KL, then probably had to make a hasty visit to Guam to calm the local residents' nerves :)

 

Judging by that screen in background, I guess it's safe to conclude that interview was extensively edited and segments rearranged, to allow for the intended message to flow better I suppose

So far can see CZ8335 (from CAN), MH2614 (from KUL) and 8L9633 (from KMG) circling the skies between BKI and LBU
With the rain intensifying again as of now, I'm guessing MH2640 from KUL will be joining the party soon as well
MH68 to TPE appear to be readying for departure from BKI though

CZ bird just made it down
The 'Lucky' bird seemed to be making a go for it too, but now back to circling above Kuala Penyu again - it appears to be the one that has been held up the longest
Ok, sky tap now turned off
Looks like it's MH2614 coming in next, then 8L9633 .......
Yay, Lucky bird made it down !
I'm sure there are a few sighs of relief onboard there :)
MH2640 now approaching - that should clear the hold ups
No sign of OD1014 stirring at MYY though

The malindo flight had the longest holding probably burned off til near reserves so they had to divert. Came in at the wrong time, rain droplets was so thick that it made visibility so bad.

interesting... sudden gust (about 10knots)  from the south west causing 2 planes CQH8943 and AXM6358 inbound runway 02 to perform go around. Runway active switched to 20.
