MALAYSIAN AIRCRAFT PHOTOS
I've made regular trips to Malaysia since 2000 to see family and friends. On each
trip I've made a photo record of aircraft and museums I've seen. The following
presentation of stills are a tiny selection of the aviation sites and aircraft that I've
photographed on these trips. All stills here were taken on my visit in July, 2011.
The excellent Royal Malaysian Air Force Museum in Kuala Lumpur,
a definite must-see attraction for any aviation fan visiting Malaysia.
The museum's hangar display features aircraft going back to the DH.82 Tiger Moth.
The museum has a large collection of aviation related equipment including airport fire trucks.
Grumman HU-16B Albatross (M35-01 / c/n: G-451), is an ex-RCAF variant with s/n: 9303.
McDonnell Douglas A-4PTM Skyhawk (M32-30 / c/n: 12324).
The Skyhawk squadron emblem on A-4PTM s/n: M32-30.

kitted JT8D engines. This aircraft was the second to last classic-era 737 to be built.
