Catching Panda

Found out that -MUD was arriving from Narita on that day, and boy was I excited. Got all the stuffs ready and off I went. It was about 2 hours before the arrival, sometime around 630pm. It was a little bit risky as the flight was showing that it slowed down and would not reach till sometime about 7. After some thought, it was a GO. After all, a China Airlines Cargo was scheduled anyway, so even IF I were to miss -MUD, at least I would have something. Being the beginning of the year, darkness doesn't fall till about 7.30pm, so that was also a driving factor.

Anyway, arrived to see 9M-MXV arriving. Gear was not up so it was just a feast to the eyes. Was greeted non-stop by 4 turboprops. Intervals between arrivals were slightly longer than that of the morning sessions.

As time progressed, the sun set more and more, moving towards the horizon and the big hill. Skies were quite clear, giving great lighting to the arriving planes.

On the outside, the -500 and -600 series look completely identical. It is on the insides where the changes are more apparent, the cockpit being one of them.

Then came AirAsia's special. One specially painted for the concert. A nice surprise I must say. This one is inbound from Langkawi.

The silhouette appeared, gracefully descending to its destination. 2 engines with a blister on the nose.

"Malaysia Welcomes Fu Wa & Feng Yi". I, welcome 9M-MUD with open arms and smiles.

MAS comes in to end the day. This one still in the older livery. 

Thanks for enjoying.
