On 11 January 2017 marks sad day for us Sarawakian as our beloved Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem passed away due to heart attack. His funeral schedule for 12 January 2017.
Wasn't expecting any heavies at first, then fellow spotter send msg in whatsapp group that Sultan of Brunei aircraft just departed Bandar Seri Begawan (he got it from FR24). Then i quickly take my shower and rush to spotting location shophouse. So here's my spotting log for today.
While waiting for His Majesty Sultan arrival, this Viking 400 9M-SSC decide to sneak in.
The only female Vikings 400 co-pilot for MASwings on duty today
Good to take aircraft picture with clear blue sky as background. It's like taking passport picture for the aircraft. hahaha
Was excited to see this B747 is without the normal B744 winglets. Coz it only mean 1 thing. It's the B747-8i with raked wingtips. And this is the first Boeing 747-8i to touchdown on Malaysian airports. Though the cargo version have touchdown few times at KLIA.
Few minutes after the Sultan has landed, Raya Airways Boeing 767-223(BDSF) 9M-RXA depart via Runway 07.
The Sultan did not spend the night in Kuching. Here His Majesty aircraft seen taxying to taxiway Alpha for Rwy 25 departure.
