First spotting session of 2018

First of all, to all readers, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

It is a brand new year and a brand new start to a lot of good things to come. Managed to head to the airport for a rather short spotting session. The main catch of the day, the MH350.

First up, operating from Singapore, FedEx.

FedEx B767-3S2F(ER) (N110FE)

It got a bit quieter during the 10am slot, so since the Korean Freighter was about to depart, decided to head to the departure site.

And a shot with the blip

Upon checking the flight tracker, MH1138 was already on route to Penang, with about 20 minutes of flight time left. So the only thing was to head back to the arrival site. Red Cap came in shortly upon arrival.

Then we had the rather colourful Firefly turboprop, promoting tourism for the state of Selangor.

At about 11, Sriwijaya came in. They are now using the -800 series as a standard for Penang-bound flights.

And Finally, after almost a delay of an hour, the 350 arrives. What's so different about this 350? Well it has that Negaraku livery.

A great start to 2018 indeed. More great shots are coming, with Qatar set for their inaugural flight to Penang on 6 February.
