Hello Guys!

 

Awesome photos. Btw, can any of you help me clarify one thing.... has Wings Air (Lion air) started scheduled services to KCH from PNK using ATR?.... I did a dummy booking seems they have started it. twice daily flights if not mistaken.

Recently on Fr24 schedules we have been noticing Wings Air operating PNK in the morning as well but we dismissed it as a glitch. I have yet to notice such flights on the airport FID screens. But it seems odd that a new carrier starting its service here seem to be doing so without any mention in the press.

Thanks for the pictures guys. Great stuff.

 

Just sharing my nostalgia - I finally found this 1970-ish Malay film online - which was shot mostly in Kuching. The movie plot is nothing to shout about but opening scene, you will see a cabin shot of Malaysia Airlines System's classic B737-200 first class. Fast forward to 17:40 and you will see Kuching airport when it was still operating at what is now RMAF :)

Nice catch of the Raya B752F. I only spot her from afar when my flight landed at KCH that time.

Just realised I forgot to upload content from the A350 route proving flight last year. But better later than never.

 

Part 1 - Arrival

I'm used to seeing the A330 coming in for approach. It's quite distinguishable with its high nose attitude and landing gear sticking out with its big trailing edge flaps. Like a duck coming in for landing. This however was quite different.

Coming in over the threshold of runway 25.

And here's the flare...

And touchdown!

Reversers were already stowed by the time it rolled past intersection A1.

Part 2 - A Closer Look

 

Let's start off with a front on shot. Face to face with the raccoon eyes.

Here she is full length, parked at bay 9.

Part 3 - The Departure

 

26002244908_85e2a98c5e_b.jpg

Pushback onto taxiway C.

39843100592_a5f97de8ed_b.jpg

39876171581_441312523a_b.jpg

 

It started to rain heavily during the pushback.

39876203881_a61392c804_b.jpg

 

Took full length runway departure despite the light load. Those engines are really powerful judging by how high it came across the terminal.

Crossing fingers to see another one of these here again soon.
