All I am doeing right now is that the 30th anniversary of MH653 is coming on December 7, 2007.
To visit the MH653 memorial site, go to Kampung Ladang, Johor Bharu.
The memorial's name (entrance) is:
Memperingati Mereka Yang Terkorban Dalam Nahas Kapalterbang Di Tanjong Kupang Johor Pada 4HB DIS 1977

something confuse me, is the 732 in old livery or already in new livery that time? by the picture of the wreckage, it looks more like new livery.

This 4th December will only be its 29th anniversary, FYI. MH 653 would have landed in Paya Lebar then, not Changi, as the latter was not to be opened until 1981.
The memorial site is in Johor Bahru, BTW, not Kg Ladang in Tg Kupang.

That solved my mystery about why the cheatline is below the windows. On the 737s, the cheatlines are amongst the windows, whereas it is below the windows on MAS' Airbus A300B4-200.

(MAS) and the worst for Malaysia. A Boeing 737-200 with 100 passengers and crews was hijacked before it crashed. Evidences
from the accident pointed to an interference of hijackers to the aircraft flight operation. Simulating the accident helped
investigators to understand the probable cause of the accident. The Trajectory Reconstruction Method was used to obtain
necessary data for the accident simulation. Result from the simulation indicated that the ill-fated aircraft experienced three steeppitch-down pitch-up movements before it stalled and crashed.

Anyway, i was juz wondering if there would be an episode of Air Crash Investigation for this crash. Would be interesting to watch...
That way, they can simulate everything for the reconstruction of the incident.

As we can see, there are a lot of crashes, maybe it'll be more interesting rather than repeating the same stories.

But I tend to believe one of the actual investigators whom I had the fortune of getting in touch with. What he says is pretty much what is on wikipedia. Explosive decomp sounds like someone trying to sleaze a way out of embarrassment, IMO.
Just my 2p.
