traffic to expect...
dont care...go and wait, pray hard for Papa Delta or Romeo Delta to line up runway 15 tongue.gif tongue.gif tongue.gif

Rest of traffic maybe viewed in a.net or jp.net...
So far, what i got and others, thats all i think in Subang.
Hope you will enjoy Subang.

As for KLIA, where to spot...may come later.
Need a BMW car and a Driver...hello Fendy...im talking about you. tongue.gif

Ai ya guys... I went spotting at Subang as TK directed the way... Couldn't get nice traffics for two days! No MAS flying, only those small, small planes and occasional pre-737 a/c... So disappointed...

Can tell us when is the best time to spot at SZB so as to get MAS, Transmile MD-11, etc.? When does MAS ferry flights usually take place?

Teoh,

sad.gif Sorry to hear that you dont get the planes you wanted at Subang.
What Gavin mentioned is almost right...
Subang is like a time bomb...the clock just ticking and no "BOOOMM", UNTIL an aircraft appears for approach, if its a good aircraft...Big time "BOOOMMM"..
Normal small small ikan bilis aircraft...No Boommm.. tongue.gif

I have been spotting here for some time, with and without Jonathan, but whenever both of us are there...Sure curse one!!! mad.gif
But when times we get something... we are the happy ones to drive home.

No schedule airline operating into SZB, meaning to say, what ever time of the day, just "pray" and "wait".. biggrin.gif

Even Transmile, yes they have some sort of schedule timings of their departure and arrival, but remember, they are Cargo operator, they maybe on time and maybe not. MD-11s ops are now mostly i see is in KUL. Do we have a member working for Transmile here, maybe can share some idea of Transmile ops...?? biggrin.gif

MAS airplane, no such thing that we can know when and what and who will fly in or out. Maybe i can check, but then..its never the right timings.
Maybe some people know, but dont want to share. If you ask me...i dont know.

As a reminder to all members and friends, Be careful with Subang, try to expect the unexpected...either there is or there aren't any traffic.
I've waited 3 hours before with not even a dragonfly flew infront of me sad.gif

As Gavin said...Boring...i find it interesting when we able to get something.
Its Balance anyway.

Now it seems to me you guys hardly get traffic as well...

The first day I went there was a Brunei A340 departure. It taxied in front of me and my friend!! Too bad I didn't bring a camera along as I was just "inspecting" the spotting locations as I was in Subang earlier of the day... Err...... Missed it!!!

I observe from PJ that during evenings and late night there are lots of planes flying into Subang (well, the planes are flying towards Subang and could see them descending and ascending, can't be wrong). Most of them are jets. Am I absolutely right??
