2014 IS BAD YEAR FOR MALAYSIAN AVIATION

Labels:
It's the end of the Year 2014 and it has been a very bad year for Malaysian aviation, especially in this Visit Malaysia Year.
Malaysia's aviation woes began last March 8 when Malaysian Airlines Flt.
MH370, a Boeing 777-200ER carrying 12 Malaysian crew members and 227 passengers from 15 countries, disappeared after it flew from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport en route to Beijing.
As if the missing MH370 wasn't bad enough for Malaysian aviation. Then on July 17, another Malaysian Boeing 777-200ER Flt. MH17 with 15 crew members and 283 passengers went missing over Ukraine.
MH17 flew from Amsterdam en route to Kuala Lumpur. Then as the news of the missing plane unfolded,  its wreckage was found in a field not far from the City of Donetsk, Ukraine close to a housing subdivision, 50 kilometers from the Russian-Ukrainian border.
This week an AirAsia Flt. No. QZ8501 with 162 people onboard this Airbus A320-200 en route from Surabaya City to Singapore confirmed crash in sea near est Java, Indonesia.
At least 40 bodies have been found in the area where AirAsia Flight 8501 last made contact with air traffic controllers, along with debris from the plane.
The bodies were found in the Java Sea about six miles from the plane’s last known point of 
contact.

  • The incidents come as search teams spotted wreckage and bodies in the sea confirmed to be from an AirAsia plane that vanished in a storm Sunday en route from Surabaya in Indonesia to Singapore with 162 people aboard.
  • Yesterday,  AirAsia flight FD3254 flight bound for northeast Thailand turned back to the capital Bangkok shortly after takeoff today when pilots detected an “irregularity” in the storage compartment, airline officials said.
  • The plane  returned to Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport soon after departing for Khon Kaen at 11.10 am (0410 GMT).
  • Around two hours later a Thai Airways Airbus A340-600 from Bangkok to London was forced to return to the Thai capital shortly after take off, after the pilot reported a technical problem.
  • “The plane had a problem with the hydraulic system, as a result the pilot decided to fly back to Suvarnabhumi Airport,” according to a Thai Airways statement.
In the Philippines, AirAsia Flight Z2272, which was flying from Manila overshot the runway in Kalibo airport as it landed in bad weather on the tourist island of Boracay today afternoon.
Police spokeswoman Nida Gregas confirmed to AFP that there were no injuries and all 153 passengers and crew were safely evacuated from the aircraft.  
With the Year 2014 at its last throes, there is no doubt that most people hope and pray for a better year in 2015. 
I wish to be more positive, however from all indications, the New Year 2015 doesn't promise any sign of peace and prosperity in the future. 
The Malaysian east coast states suffer worst floods in living memory.  
National news agency Bernama reported that 90,250 people were evacuated with the highest number in Kelantan at 32,343, followed by Terengganu (28,991), Pahang (24,316), Perak (4,335) and Perlis (265).
