Penang Planespotting #011 - Part 1

Time for a flashback to the previous sessions at Penang. I would usually want to keep up to date and post up as I spot, but sometimes most of the times, other things get in the way. So here's what's up on the 25th September 2016. I honestly had no idea why I was there, but I guess it was due to me having a camera and being rather free at that point. Plus it was the afternoon session, a time which I rarely spot at. Let's start with the lightweights.

Indonesia AirAsia A320-216 (PK-AXU)

AirAsia A320-216 (9M-AQU)

AirAsia A320-216 (9M-AHV)

Firefly ATR72-500 (9M-FYK)

Now guess who finally decided to depart? Really excited for this shot.

Aaaannndd I now remembered why I was here. This one. THE ONE. The FIRST ONE. Well I've covered this some time back. Here's the link to it. A320NEO.

AirAsia A320-251N (9M-NEO)

Now back to the business jet. Nice sleek outlook and beautiful sound. Powerful too to rotate after a fairly short distance.

Bombardier Global 5000 (N933ML)

Fun stuff. Imagine being able to travel in that one day. (one day). Back to the other traffic coming in and going out of Penang. If you notice this next one, there was a bounce on touchdown.

Firefly ATR72-500 (9M-FYJ)

Malindo ATR72-600 (9M-LMM)

Now here we have China Airlines' 747F departing. I usually only get to see it arriving due to it only coming in at about 12 and departing at 2 (an oven to be spotting in).

China Airlines Cargo B747-409F (B-18719)

More in the next post.

Penang Planespotting #010 - 19 August 2017 - Part 3

Part 3, focusing on only narrowbodies, Boeings first then Airbuses. Some specials too. To start it off with a roar, here's MH's special themed 738.

Malaysia Airlines B737-8H6 (9M-MXA)

Other side

Eva Air was still unloading. Was hoping to get it before I left but looks like it would be another day for Eva Air's departure shot.

Loading the freighter

SilkAir's first flight of the day to Penang, sometimes with a 738, sometimes a 319 and sometimes a 320.

Then came the barrage of 320s from AirAsia, Jetstar and Scoot (yup).

You can tell that the sun was getting hotter with better lit photos. But I had to stay for one brightly coloured aircraft. One thing good about these aircraft is that it allows me to have test shots (yes, sometimes still need them)

AirAsia A320-216 (9M-AHM)

Missed out Jetstar's arrival, managed to get the taxi shot.

And Finally, for the one that we've (also) been waiting for. Tigerair Scoot's A320. Yes of course we are going to see more of it in years to come, but just happy that they sent this particular one up to Penang. Thank you.

Scoot A320-232 (9V-TAQ)

That's all for this edition. Stay tuned for more.
