Many, many moons ago there were scheduled A300s and DC-10s services KCH-BKI vv when some Tokyo and Seoul (maybe Hong Kong too) flights were 'bended' to make calls at the two EM airports :)


Ahh the good old days 😊

Ah the Airbus A300. The only airbus aircraft with control column instead of sidestick. Was a legendary aircraft though.

Did some night spotting while waiting to pick someone on a late flight from KUL. It's been awhile since I've taken any proper night shots.

 

9M-AHR wearing the Ejen Ali livery ready for the push back to Johor.

My main target of the night. Haven't caught this, the last A320 of the 9M-AGx series, 9M-AGY.

AGP, one of our hub aircraft resting after finishing her SBW run.

Lima Golf, one of the few remaining classic livery MH aircraft at bay 5.

MXG from Lumpur pulling in for the nightstop.

And AGC returns as hub aircraft from KUL, nicely on time given that this daily BKI/KUL pairing does't have very good OTP on average.

Nice pics Prestley. Those shots can be taken from inside the terminal? Visitors have a clear view of the apron?

More challenging to get right especially without tripod. But will look good if done properly. Do like the challenge sometimes!

Thank you! Yes these are from inside they terminal airside. These were taken after security as I used to work airside.

Nice touch on the pictures GeO. Btw, just a reminder, please do not forget the RMAF open day at RMAF Kuching Base on 27/10/2018. On static display will be A400M, Su30MKM, F/A18D, BAE Hawk and most equipment in their inventory. Aerobatic display is scheduled at 9.30am and 2.00pm. So do not miss this rare opportunity, all the best spotters. Get your weapon lock and loaded :good:
