YB Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hussein, the Acting Minister of Transport, has directed the Police Special Branch to probe into the aborted MH192 from KLIA to Bangalore on 21-4-204 due to tyre burst during take off. He has also given MAS two days to present a preliminary report to be submitted to the cabinet for consideration, HERE. (more…)
Updates at 2:30 pm on 21-4-2014: Yours truly has been reliably informed that YB Dato’ Hishamuddin bin Hussein has called for a report from the top management of MAS pertaining the damaged landing gear and air turn back of MH 190 for consideration by the Government.
The Government should also look into all the appointments made by MAS during and after the infamous MAS-AirAsia share swap including the appointment of all consultants. This is ensure that only competent officers are maintained in their positions for the good of MAS and nation. For the appointment of the “Hollywood and Hollywood”, and Seabury Consulting, please read HERE.
Thank you YB Dato Hishamuddin. You have made us proud with the ways in which you have handled the episode of the missing MH 370.
Thank God! The superb handling of MH192 by MAS pilot has averted another air tragedy. MH 192 departed KLIA at 10:09 pm 20-4-2014 to Banglore. It has made an air turn back to Kuala Lumpur due to a tyre burst during take off and the debris of the damaged tyre have damaged the system (wiring of the gear system of the right hand landing gear) which has indicated to the pilot that it is damaged.
The right hand landing gear cannot be retracted for the whole journey. Hence, the air turn back. (more…)
The Government is into the 14 days in the search and rescue operation and the acting Minister of Transport, YB Dato’ Hishamuddin Hussein, has been advising members of the public not to speculate on the missing MH 370. On the other hand, the newly crowned Star Group Chief Editor is taking The Star further down the road of ridicule. (more…)

It took MAS 10 hours to hold a press conference to announce that MH 370 was missing. MAS could have easily ascertained the status of MH 370 when it did not arrive in Beijing at 6:30 am 8-3-2014 as scheduled. Further, MH 730 has fuel to fly up to about 8:30 am. By 9:00 am, if not earlier, MAS should have been able to make a public announcement that MH 370 was missing but MAS chose to drag its feet until 12 noon. (more…)
