Malaysia Airlines System New Airbus A380 Is Home

Malaysia Airlines A380 Plane First Landing at KLIA took place at about 3.45pm on the 30th May 2012. This was indeed a historical moment for the company as it has been quite some time since the purchase of these six planes. This is also the first of the six planes that made its inaugural flight from Toulouse in France to KLIA, Malaysia. As many of the airline staff and technicians were patiently waiting out at Hanger 6 in KLIA.

The scheduled landing for the Malaysia Airlines A380 was set at about 3pm that day.While we waited it out in the hot sun, a false alarm was witnessed as an Emirates Airline A380 came in for landing. The anxious crowd started to clap until noticing the tail fin of the plane. A new timing was announced that the Airbus A380 would be landing at about 1530 pm. Plane spotters who were specially invited made their way up an even higher scaffolding to get the best spots and unfortunately with my leg cast and crutches, I could only make my way up the 30 feet scaffolding.

The Malaysia Airlines A380 was initially seen from a distance. With my zoom lens, I took a picture and zoomed in. Yes, it was the plane and it came in majestically. The pilot had radioed the control tower to say that they were going to do a 'Fly Pass' where the aircraft will come in low and fly pass the airport. After the fly pass, the plane made a circle and came in again. Landing gears down, she glided slowly and vanished behind the hanger to land on Runway 32R.

After landing, the A380 taxied its way towards Hanger 6 where everyone was waiting. A crowd of almost 500 people had gathered for this memorable moment in the airlines history. You could see Malaysia Airlines staff, technicians, pilots and even security people eagerly awaiting the arrival.

Finally the A380 makes a full stop outside Hanger 6 and the crowd applauds while making their way towards the aircraft. By then, the Plane Spotters had already climbed down the scaffolding and blended in with the crowd.
