Re: RMAF MiG29 fighter jet crashes in Kemaman
On a more serious note, what mind boggles me is the attitude of our government to practise the 'tidak apa attitude'. I have on numerous occasions, while growing up, sat in a Charlie130, Karibu, Nuri and Allouette. Trust me, Karibu should have been grounded a long time ago. But I still see them flying over Subang once in a while. Man, that aircraft is a flying time-bomb if you ask me or any ex-air force personnel. But what does the gov say, "if its not broken, use it!"
Back to the present story, why is the gov so unconfident with the rest of the aircraft that it should instruct the rest of the planes to be grounded if their periodic service is good. The engineers would have found the fault before it took off. Or, were the engineers busy having tea when they should have taken a closer look at the jet? Aiyaahhh, not my harta what. Who cares?? Joe, you are talking about a multi-million dollar equipment. And it is supposed to be 'fault-free'!! When it comes to aircraft, they don't accept 99.99%!! It HAS to be a 100% fit, period. How the hell did it happen? Or, was it the fault of the pilot. Was he another 23 year old Capt from UTM who was sleeping while flying?
You get cheap spares, half-past-six service plan/personnel and a tight budget coupled with very old and cheap planes, you have a recipe for disaster, my friends!! The gov should, instead of sponsoring idiot sportsmen who can't win a medal in any jacksh!t competition, build kompleks sukan one after another for GOD knows what the fook for, channel the money to newer military equipments. For a country whose leaders make hell of a noise as though we are second world-power in line after the US, we sure have 'mercun buluh' to shout about as our state of the art military attire, man !!
And what do you have now, 16 grounded MIG29's, 1 crashed, second-hand SkyHawks and a gov making foolish decisions with the public fund.
DAMN, I LOVE THIS COUNTRY!!
