Malaysia Airlines A350 visits Penang

A special session.

Malaysia Airlines have just taken delivery of their latest aircraft, the A350 and are doing short-haul runs between Kuala Lumpur and Penang (MH1140 / MH1145) throughout the month of December, providing more than enough opportunity to catch it. Their second A350, (9M-MAC) with the Negaraku Livery will be coming shortly, so got to look out for that too. Now for the photos.

On Approach

Malaysia Airlines A350-941 (9M-MAB)

For an aircraft (and engine) of that size, it is surprisingly quiet, gracefully gliding past. It comes equipped with the new wingtip devices as well as very bright white landing lights. Also glad that they finally got the logo, the Wau in correct position, without chopping any part off.

Approaching the runway.

Definitely going to have more sessions to catch this bird before they are swapped with the 737.
