Penang Planespotting #008 - 31 August 2016 - Part 3

It has been some time since I've updated this, but nevertheless, I am back. Here the rest of the shots for the spotting on the 31st August 2016.

And guess who decided to say hi. A flyby at low speeds, no afterburners. It's amazing how quiet they can be.

Now back to the runway.

Malindo Air B737-8GP (9M-LNP)

Rolling from the beginning of runway 22, and with those sharklets, rotation was early. Hence this shot.

AirAsia A320-216 (9M-AQU)

Then the winds changed and it was back to using 04.

Malindo ATR72-600 (9M-LMP)

Before this final rather shaky one. I do notice quite a number of Firefly aircraft doing such aerobatics, though most of the time it was windy.

Firefly ATR72-500 (9M-FYA)

That is all for this post. Stay tuned for more.

Just a sneak peak. Noticed anything different about this China Southern Airlines aircraft?

Penang Planespotting #008 - 31 August 2016 - Part 2

And guess what we have to start off the second part of this thread.......

China Airlines B737-809 (B-18612)

It is not everyday that this one is captured as it arrives at about 4pm-ish. I read that they have previously sent their A340s (how nice if they were to do that again).

Next there was an influx of AirAsia jets. Good for trying out different shots.

AirAsia A320-214 (9M-AFC) - World's best Low Cost Airline

Indonesia AirAsia A320-216 (PK-AXF)

AirAsia A320-216 (9M-AHS)

I can vividly remember another AirAsia aircraft with a white tipped engine cover (somewhere).

Then came a member of the ATR family. After a sea of AirAsias, come the sole Firefly aircraft.

Firefly ATR72-500 (9M-FYH)

All that arrive would have to eventually depart right? Here is AFC departing. The following shots are possible with Runway 22 ops.

More coming in Part 3. Stay tuned.
