Good point.. was about to say the same.. anyways, returning to the original topic.. we will now see less of Maswings in Sabah.
MASwings will still be here, at least in MYY for the much needed RAS operations.
I think the era of RAS in Sabah is now over. All the small towns which used to be served with Otters are now connected by roads - example, Ranau, Kota Belud and Keningau are now within 2 hours drive from KK, even people prefer to travel to Kudat by land although Otter is still flying there albeit with mediocre schedule and exorbitant price (~RM500++ return - absurd price). Sadly, the airfields are now abandoned even though these are still government owned.
Sadly, era of RAS in Sarawak is not over yet. We will still see much Twin Otters in MYY, and a little presence in KCH. Most people would much prefer driving as well, but many STOLports are located at Sarawak-Kalimantan border (eg. Bario, Ba'kelalan, Long Akah etc.) and these are hardly accessible by roads (at least currently, since the cost is way too high for the state to bear, or maybe the top brass can't get enough $ out of it? =X), nor express boats.
