A great way to end 2013

T'is a season to go spotting. And what greater way to end 2013 than to head out to the airport for a few hours of spotting. Lighting could have been better though. The clouds act as a GIANT light diffuser providing not so direct light as well as backlighting. Let's start.

Malaysia Airlines B737-4H6 (9M-MQA)

AirAsia A320 (9M-AQH) - Air Asia's 100th awesome plane came in twice. Must be doing a PEN-KUL-PEN-KUL sector

Cathay Pacific Cargo B747-467F (B-HUP) gracefully descending towards the runway

Firefly ATR72-500 (9M-FYJ)

And here we see Cathay backtracking on the Runway.

And finally, caught this Airbus with Sharklets (9M-AJA)

Side View of 9M-AJA

Jetstar A320 (9V-JSE)

Coming in for the second time, though this time lighting was worse

Hong Kong Airlines A320-214 (B-LPG)
New Airline operating into Penang

Tigerair A320 (9V-TAV) with brand new stripes

And Lastly, a great way to end the 2013 spotting sessions

Cathay Pacific A330-343X in One World Livery (B-HLU)

That's all for this year.

Thanks for visiting. Check out this blog next year with even more spotting at Penang and even coverage at the Singapore Airshow 2014.

Until then, Happy New Year to all.

Highlights of Penang - November 2013 - Part 3

For the third instalment, let's begin with something rather unusual.

FedEx MD-11F (N593FE) using the entire length of the runway to slow down
Even heavies like the 747 turn at the taxiway just before this location. Maybe the pilot wanted to give me a great photo op?

RAF C-17A Globemaster III (ZZ177)
