I’m very sad to learn of this tragic accident earlier today. I flew on 9M-MDM during my first Twin Otter experience and it was one of my best experiences being on an airplane. During that flight, I felt perfectly safe and I continue to have confidence in the ability of these twin otters in connecting people by providing accessibility to remote areas in Sabah and Sarawak.
Nevertheless, accidents happen. 10/10/2013 will be another sad day for Malaysian aviation along with 4/12/1977 and 15/09/1995.
My thoughts are with the family and friends of the two who lost their lives and speedy recovery to all the other survivors.
