MASWings’ 9M-MDM Twin Otter Crash in Kudat – A Sad Day for Malaysian aviation


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.

    I totally understand bro.
    I personally love this 9M-MDM plane as it brings me back to visit my people in Bario.
    Just when it’s sad when I came to Bario last week on board it, didn’t know it would be my last.
    It was flying fine few days ago from Bario

    Was surprised to hear about this and reading all the press releases by MAS. May the victims rest in peace. Hopefully this doesn’t waver people’s trust in MAS though.
