From their relatives:

Onn Jaafar was the nephew of former prime minister, Tun Hussein Onn

Azian Borhanuddin was from Kuala Langat,Selangor and she wasnt supposed to be on this flight but was called at last minute by MAS to replace one of the cabin crew who cannot make it on that day.

Here's the memorial for the crew of MH653 at MAS Complex B, Subang. Every year at the anniversary date the top management have a small ceremony to remember that fateful day. And this year will mark the 35th anniversary. How fast time flies.

Also my mom had a personal connection with the crash - her schoolmate a.k.a "adik angkat" was one of the stewardesses, but I'm not sure which.

Interesting new series by TV3, starts tomorrow night, 9pm (2/5/12). Look out for the 2 episodes that intrigued all of us all this while.

'Detik Tragik' Papar Bencana Terburuk Dalam Negara

Gambar fail menunjukkan orang ramai menghadiri pengebumian 93 penumpang dan tujuh orang anak kapal terbunuh apabila pesawat Syarikat Penerbangan Malaysia terhempas di Tanjung Kupang, Johor pada 4 Disember 1977.


PETALING JAYA: Stesen TV3 bakal menyiarkan sebuah dokumentari kisah benar yang memaparkan peristiwa cemas dalam negara termasuklah kejadian letupan kilang mercun dan bunga api Bright Sparklers di Sungai Buloh dekat sini pada tahun 1991.


Penerbit Eksekutifnya, Mohd Said Abdullah Thani berkata, program Detik Tragik sebanyak 13 episod itu diterbitkan untuk memberi peluang kepada generasi hari ini menyaksikan peristiwa penting dan bencana yang telah meragut nyawa dan menggemparkan negara.


“Kami menggunakan pendekatan penyiasatan secara serius yang melibatkan tinjauan ke lokasi kejadian sebenar dan menemu bual saksi serta mangsa yang terlibat.

Zakiah Anas antara wartawan yang terlibat dalam 'Detik Tragik'.


"Banyak maklumat baru yang kami bongkar dalam Detik Tragik selain yang pernah disiarkan menerusi media,” katanya dalam satu kenyataan yang dikeluarkan di sini, Selasa.


Antara peristiwa yang akan turut disiarkan seperti kebakaran di Terminal 1, Lapangan Terbang Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah, Subang, Ribut Greg di Keningau, Sabah, Tsunami di Pulau Pinang dan Kedah dan banjir lumpur di Pos Dipang, Perak.


Turut dipaparkan kejadian terminal feri runtuh di Butterworth, pesawat terhempas di Tanjung Kupang, Johor yang turut meragut nyawa seorang menteri serta tanah runtuh di Genting Sempah, Pahang.


Katanya, kejadian letupan kilang mercun dan bunga api yang berlaku pada 7 Mei 1991 itu pasti meninggalkan kenangan pahit kerana ia telah meragut 26 nyawa manakala 83 orang cedera.

Letupan kilang bunga api dan mercun di Sungai Buloh pada tahun 1991.


"Letupan dahsyat itu turut digelar ‘Hiroshima Sungai Buloh’ berikutan gegaran ledakan seakan-akan bom atom. Berpunca daripada 200 tan belerang, gegaran ledakan tersebut dapat dirasai sehingga tujuh kilometer dari lokasi tragedi,” ujarnya.


Siri dokumentari itu menampilkan gabungan wartawan berpengalaman dan muka baru, seperti Zakiah Anas, Harris Mohd Farok Alex, Nurul Syuhada Nurul Ain Mohd Zin, Mohd Raziff Zulkafli, Siti Hajar Rozli, Nurul Syafikah Abd. Masri dan Syazwan Syuwari Nordin


Ia akan bersiaran selama setengah jam pada setiap hari Rabu pukul 9 malam bermula 2 Mei depan.

Good series. Hope they will follow up in the next season the assassination of the Inspector General of Police, the bombing of Tugu Negara, the fire at Campbell Complex, amongst others. I remember very well the people were called to donate RM1 million for the repairs of Tugu Negara (2 statues fell to the ground..... visitors allowed to see the damage). The IGP was shot just as he passed by what is now Menara Maybank. Campbell Complex tower was engulfed in flames and I witnessed it as we used to stay at Jalan Dato Onn overlooking Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman etc.

Lots more actually.... the hostage crisis at the US Embassy in AIA building (the schools at Jalan Bukit Nanas e.g. St John's & Convent got a 1 week holiday during the standoff :) ). They should interview witnesses of theses tragedies while they are still around.

My late father was one of the negotiators on behalf on the Malaysian gov. Was intially asked to escort (as a guarantee for their safety) the JRA to Libya but was substituted by someone else. I was in school at the time of the incident when suddenly there was a huge presence of police and classes were dismissed immediately.

There is an aviation element in this incident. Hope people who were at Subang airport at that time can describe how things were when the JRA boarded the plane etc. What I know snipers were there... "just in case".

From what I saw in that documentary - the JAL pilots didn't want to continue to fly to Libya, and the govt. in an effort to get rid of them tried to get MH's pilots to fly the plane, even though they're not type-qualified on the DC-8 that JAL flew. Is that correct?

I suspect no one is ever going to verify that even if they are in position to do so :D
At same time, I wonder how they would have gone about selecting which MH pilot to ..... errr 'sacrifice' ? :D

I was not told about that, and obviously too late to ask. It would have been a secret at that time, and perhaps till today. Some people are soooo afraid of the establishment...

It would be very interesting if they do a story on the F27 crash. Flight Operations should shiver if the truth comes out. It happened during the Reign of Terror.

If you are referring to the Fokker that crashed in TWU, that was a F-50 (9M-MGH) just to be nitpicking?

With the state that our local press is in currently I m not sure we will get the full truth. You may get disappointed if some P&C info were not made available, or worst, fabricated. Take it as an entertainment and nothing more.
