Malaysia orders luxury jet for PM?


Flying Cobra. The luxury yacht isn't even ready, and now this.
The Q319 CJ (Corporate Jet) was believed ordered back in 2005 and is being refurbished for VIP configuration at



Switzerland’s premier aircraft maintenance facility, the Basel-based Jet Aviation.


The cost? About US$50 million only.
The Cobra Sultan was said to cost US$8 million and it won't even be able to fly! So this jet must be a wise buy.

Pro-Umno website KMU has the story earlier and RPK's Malaysia Today put up a caption story, to be updated after the Friday prayers. Which is a cue for all of us to pray for the future of this country.

wah nice jet...hmm i wonder would the owners be RESPONSIBLE enough to stand up to any accusations on this purchase..since they have been preaching that we whould be RESPONSIBLE in doing everything....WISHFUL THINKING?

Anonymous said...

I'm begining to suspect that the Cobra King is really clueless when it comes to public sentiments regarding his dismayal performance. When the paymasters are worrying about where their next meal will come from, he happily goes and spend another few million on a luxury aircraft, FOR WHAT?! If we are expected to downgrade our lifestyle, we expect the leadership of this country to do the same....aren't they all on our payroll?

hasilox said...

What another f@cking nonsense!

Disasters are poorly managed. People are losing jobs. Living costs are rising out of proportion. Ridiculous OSA-ed agreements to 'loot' the people. And, these hyenas still doing all sort of nonsenses. Indeed, we need to pray very very hard.

Rocky!

Seriously speaking in order to save the country I, and two other very wise old persons have been given permission to perform a very ancient art of redressing serious problem. This art has been called black magic with the wont of a proper name, but an art nevertheless, but will be without serious consequences. I will be drained of my energy and if I survive we can still have beer at anywhere. In exactly 8 days from today, which happens to be Friday, 26th, Malaysians will receive a welcomed respite, we will be breating a sigh of relief and that I can guarantee. In the olden days this art could only be used if more than 350 people beING affected by bad things, but I believe under the present circumstance more than 10 millions will be, so the art is allowed to be used. So here to me who is crazy enough to do it! So IN EIGHT DAYS!!!

Ahhh, the LET US SELL PUTRAJAYA MENTALITY kah?

I would have tought the PM would be imaginative enough to have a motorized yatch like HMS Brittania just to show that we are not that poor a country.

Is it an aircraft for official use is more of the qustion and who?
Please.Are you punch drunk, Rocky?

The country is having economic crisis and we hear of the Sleeping Beauty buying RM30 million yatch and now buying a plane.

Well, I need he need a plane to sleep so htat no one can take his picture or disturb him!!

jangan cakap orang bodoh kalau kita pun tak cerdik...this is a brand new A319 ACJ...what you are referring to is the BBJ (boeing Business Jet) that was taken over from MAS (formerly Mastar 9M-BBJ now re-registered to the military (RMAF M53-01)....next time, watch your words, watch your facts...this site talks about facts...not fiction..GET IT?

Rocky Bro,

I got this sms from a retired senior ranking Special Branch Officer "Tq it's like Nero sings while Rome burns. Sedih".

The Prime Minister and Government time and again tells us the rakyat to be thrift spenders and conveniently, they themselves subscribe to orpulance!

Getting a brand new ACJ 319 wherelse there exists a BBJ, Global Express and Falconjet 900B in TUDM stabbles is really orpulant.

Even if the new ACJ 319 will be wetleased, its still Govt paying at cost plus, wherelse they could easily transfer the BBJ back to PMB and re-register as "9M", if the RMAF markings is the major problem scaving thru international routes.

How can the God fearing PM suddenly be so corpulant and obtuse????

Teja said...

Here's my comments on KMU:

As a Malaysian CEO, Pak Lah has not, cannot and will not deliver.

He (and his family) is also a HUGE LIABILITY to UMNO and BN.
In less than 3 years, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has successfully managed to tarnish and make a joke of our country's reputable image by his wishy-washy decisions, highly uninformed as well as unintelligent statements both to Malaysians and the world.

This is my ultimate conclusion.

I have given Abdullah the benefits of the doubts when Tun Dr Mahathir told us he is the possible choice, eventhough I have some reservations. I had put my reservations aside having seen Mahathir's proven track records. I have observed, got very disappointed and now absolutely FURIOUS with this PM's mis-stewardship and blatant abuse of his position and office in the last 3 years.

As the RAKYAT, the real shareholders and stakeholders of Malayia, I don't think any of us want to approve this sort of UNWARRANTED PURCHASES. I was shocked at the amount of RM going down the drain when he RENOVATED the Perdana residence costing over RM20. I don't think that is warranted at all. It came from the rakyat's pocket and hard-earned money.

Then gallavanting around the world at taxpayers money and receiving high-end "gift" as reported in foreign newspaper, when he has not yet proven his worth as a PM instead keep giving us the rakyat more and more headaches in term of rising costs (fuel and toll hikes PLUS all other cost of living hikes due to the fuel hikes!). When the rakyat suffered a natural disaster recently, the PM was happily playing golf and opening his family-owned Nasi Kandar restaurant in Australia. Where is his PRIORITIES? Who pays his salary? His family or us the MALAYSIAN RAKYAT & TAXPAYERS?

His family interferes with the nation's decision-makings, as well as attend govt meetings, and he without any shame to us the UMNO members, duly put his son-in-law at UMNO Pemuda and his daughter Nori at Putri UMNO high office. He also sees fit without embarassment in putting his name and family names on national interests. Now we found out there is a perjanjian Koizumi-Abdullah, a dewan Sri Endon, etc.

This is VERY EMBARASSING, HIGHLY UNAPPROPRIATE and NOT the way a PM should be carrying about his business.

No former Malaysian PM have done such thing. It is a gentleman's and unwritten understanding one does not put one's one's family and priorities over the nation. It is ABSOLUTELY EMBARASSING to be putting one's own name and label on a national interest.

We CANNOT AFFORD such person to run Malaysia AT A BLATANT HIGH COST with NO DELIVERABLES, instead giving us headaches after headaches. Shouldn't the Govt under the PM take care of u? but now we see and experiencing we have to baby-sit the PM and the Govt. Everyday we are reminded to TAKE CARE of the Govt. This not to include the embarassment of the tarnishing of our image by the PM. What sort of PM will dragged his family "my son-in-law PERIUK NASI was damage" at a foreign press conference?? and what a HUGE PERIUK NASI that is! Or the picture of him caressing a Michelle Yeoh's shoulder at the recent Monsoon Cup when he was promoting himself as an Islamic figure. What sort of JOKE is the PM making and dragging this country into?

As a hardworking taxpayer [who is seeing my hard-earned money and purchasing power eroded and abused day-by-day in the last 3 years], a BN-voter and an UMNO member, I now DEMAND TO SEE the itemized list for ALL this particular PM is costing us in the 3 years we trusted him with this office. [For the record, I voted for BN not becoz of the candidate. I voted and trusted my vote as well as all my family, friends and neighborhood votes for the stirling PREVIOUS TRACK RECORD given by Tun Dr. Mahathir in running the country under UMNO and BN. But NOW it is important and crucial for us to consider the candidate and his immediate famly].

The rakyat can only afford to be make a fool once. UMNO and BN must remove this koyak and absolutely non-performing candidate if they want and win our trust again.

Can someone tabled the ITEMIZED COSTINGS please.

/A fed-up voter & tired taxpayer

He's got cars, he's got a boat, now he's got a jet. What's missing? A rocket?

Maybe we should put him in the Russian rocket and send him up there with his Astro pal. Then he will be the FIRST PM in empty space.

Send him to the moon so that he can take on PAS there.

What's this country coming to? Will everything be classified under the Official Secrets Act?

Will this new plane encourage him to fly more often? How much is the maintainence cost? Does the plane have a health club?

Anybody has calculated how many miles the old gaffer has accumulated over the past 1 year?

Data POS said...

This is what people call 'luxury self indulgence'. The luxury yacht, the luxury aircraft, the luxury palace in putrajaya, the luxury nasi kandaq restaurant, the luxury merger of companies,etc..
All these luxurious need to be displayed and informed, that the purpose of having it all.
Then once more rocky shows the highest responsibility attitude by reporting, promoting and informing every detail of it. Good job Bro.

Prices gone up but the people's income hasn't gone up and they are protesting.

Meanwhile, the group of people who has the heart (ada hati) to lead us are becoming richer. They build mansions and now a LUXURIOUS jet.

As a citizen of this country, I think I have the right to question about the plane. What's it for? For who? May I know?

We really are a stupid lot! Shag probably has not read Raja Petra's article, anyway. And he will eat his words come May or June this year when the plane is delivered. EVERYBODY in Pak Lah's circle knows about this, it's no secret. And the plane will cost EASILY USD 60m, rather than 50m.
Also, this plane was ordered early 2005, not some 7 years ago. Pak Lah and the SIL have to enjoy now, just in case the younger one fails to ascend the throne.

Hi Rocky,
As an airplane enthusiast, I must say the A319 executive jet is a beautiful aeroplane. There was a documentary on this subject on Astro National Geographic last night, a behind-the-scenes look at a Boeing 737 Business Jet being designed and then fitted for a customer.

The interior would be uniquely customised, unlike conventional airliners.
Expensive leather seating, high-tech meeting rooms, sophisticated communications equipment for the Top Guy in stay in control, luxurious master bedroom, with its own attached shower.
Everything of the very highest quality - all that inside a lovely aeroplane.

Beautiful, beautiful...until you remember this plane is being paid from Income tax contributed by you and I from our daily sweat and toil.

specially to shag who wrote, "Where's the evidence besides some rumour from RPK & a post in an umno forum?"

so, are you stupid or what?

what is evidence?

evidence ... the facts, signs or objects that make you believe that something is true.

question: what do you see in the photos above? (credit to the original poster.)

answer: it's a plane... it's a plane!

question: what are we talking about?

answer: it's a plane... it's a plane!

so, now you know you are stupid.

however, had you asked, "Could the livery have been Photoshopped?" (note:if you know what the software Adobe Photoshop can do with photos, then you should know what I mean by "photoshopped.")

at the very least and to be fair... there is still an iota of reasonable doubt... and no one could call you stupid and still get away with it.

but then again... stupid is what stupids do!

Why was the NST not publishing about the Mr I do No Know and his new jet plane? May be Kalimullah did not knwo about this so he cannot tell hte NST to publish this news.

Rocky I hope it was not defamatory to publish Kalimullah's naem. I think that I better not mention Klaimullah name otherwise he will also sue me. Now let talk about Mr I Do Not Know.

So far Mr I Do Not know, Khairy and the Tingkat Empat boys did not respond to the jet plane story? I suppose they all pretend not to knwo in the hope that the Rakyat will ofrget it after two days.

How about the Opposition Leader, Mr Lim Kit Siang? I am sure that Kit Siang also didn't know about the jet plane scandal. Since Kit SIang did not know about the RM30 million yatch scandal, I don't suppose he will know about this jet plane scandal.

May be Kit Siang will bring up some small issue in order to help the Mr I Do Not Know to divert this lattest scandal on hte jet plane.

Let watch what Kit Siang is going to do on this jet plane scandal!! Most probably nothing much!! Because Kit Siang also didn't know about this!

I am surprised there are still people who are trying to give Pak Lah some benefit of the doubt. This plane was ordered by Pak Lah and his administration for the use of Pak Lah (not any other Malaysian official - they can use BBJ or GE). Please check Raja Petra's posting and go to the website: www.skyliner-aviation.de/showphotos.main and go under registration list until D-AIDR. The photo comes with this caption:

Gerubuk said...

Don't know what Pasquale was referring to in his 'art' comment, but Fri Jan 26 is past.

Today's Sunday Times carry the front page interview with PM Abdullah headlined "I've to do what I need to do". Thought he was back from Davos. But No! This Sunday Interview was done many days ago before he went to London and then Davos. This is an old interview which had been fermenting for days in the minds of the panel of distinguished interviewers before it was boinked in today's Sunday Times. I read it at the morning market : I did not buy the copy.

Another gross example of the remote control "I am in control" PM, conveniently away on tax-payers money playing irrelevant games in another part of the world while the Malaysian rakyat suffers, and more than 50,000 people in Johore still live in smelly, muddy and gruesome squalor. The PM has got to do what he need to to do : Be away from the people when they need him most!!

And he has the false smile and guts to say that 'The most important thing is that I have the support of the majority', despite having lost a massive vote of no confidence in the media merger debacle which he championed!! What a world-class hypocrite!! No shame, no shame.

To prove his belief, I urge him to call for an early general elections. Let's see if you actually have the majority of Malaysian support this time. Come on, don't be shy and hide. Come out and play with the people who put you there due to your mis-representation. We want to put things right. Call the elections in the upcoming school holidays - many schools are still without proper amenities, many schools in Johore are still in messy straits from the biggest floods in many many years to which yopu only paid courtesy calls in nice boats with life jackets.

In the last elections, you won by a landslide with your sweet promises and 'Mr. Clean' alim image. Since then, you have betrayed our trusts and confidence, and plundered our minds and encouraged 'corrupt' practices which you vowed to eradicate!! All your promises come to naught, really, NONE of your promises were ever fulfilled, at least NONE that is of any serious significance. Most of the time, you offered simple and childish excuses like "I don't know" when you are PM. Have you gone mad with power or are you just making up for lost time and opportunities, as you realsie that there are many enemies at your gates. Unforgiveable.

You raised tolls and petrol prices and did nothing to uplift the confidence of foreign investors in Malaysian economy. FDIs went elsewhere.

You wasted our tax-payers money on nonsensical non-events like the Monsoon Cup which attracted scant attention from the domestic, much less the foreign viewers.

Your mainstream media has been less than honest in its reporting for which they ridicule themseleves, reflecting badly on you. And you want to blame bloggers for it.

We write with sincerity and in good faith hoping that you have some Islamic good sense left to bertaubat before you destroy the whole nation : that's where you are leading us to.

If you want to destroy yourself, we could'nt care less, and take your family and cronies with you when you do so.

But, Malaysia is bigger than you adn your family. I beg you : Don't bring us on the road to perdition!!

The basic but often neglected by most users is their computer. If our computer is infected by virus or spyware, no method can help. It will be like having thieves inside our house. This is also very critical if we do sensitive stuffs like Internet Banking.

So, lets start practicing safe computing habit. Start by cleaning up our computer by doing a spyware and virus scan. Then, install a firewall and antivirus. Anti-spyware is good to have, but sufficient to scan on routine basis.

If we don't get these basics right, all other methods only give us false sense of security.

Maybe, we can work out an easy to follow guideline besides these basics for bloggers later.

Should you decide to, there will be some vetting through to do coz "they" even tried faking Susan Loone's email address and sent Sheih a very very suspecious file attachment.

Thank you, God Bless.

UMNO & BN must take Pak Lah out from its candidacy.

This is the only way to save Malaysia of further harm from this very blur and extremely INCOMPETENT PM.

UMNO and BN must grow up and do the ONLY right thing to do now.

Pak Lah (as well as his family) has proven himself to be a HUGE liability to the ruling coalition.

The jet was bought in the early days after Pak Lah was made PM.So somebody made a lot $ by brokering the deal with the vendors.

I wonder who...

You claim to undertand my anger yet say stop talking rot!

I fail to understand you unless you are part of the nst rotting core. I believe not, though, that you are part of that.

The rot starts with the head, some mad virus in the brain mid-stem, resulting in non-decisons, wrong decisions and utterly crazy ones too!! This rot at the core is spreading its pervasive stench not only in our lovely homeland, but hopping, sailing, nay, flying all over the world!! Malu tak? Tebal muka nya!! Tiada hati untuk rakyat-nya.

We must help our people to translate their frustrations and anger into action by voting out Abdullah and his gang of thieves in the next GE.

With its existing laws and subjective, and often, discriminative application and enforcement, the voices of the people have been muted, suppressed, stifled, muzzled and silenced. The mainstream media has been the bearer of many false hopes and promises and mis-representation, the voice of the powers that be, the massive propoganda organ of the hungry and devouring government.

Dear nstman, if you are in a position of responsibility, help out and spread the word. Convert the fear of the people into fervour for change, to break the barrier of their silence and subservience and act to bring change of good hope for our future.

I won't comment yet on the fact that NST, a party to the suit against two wellknown bloggers, hastily inserted PM's Abdullah's comments and pestilence in yesterday's Sunday Times, on the eve of the High Court's hearing of issues pertaning to the on-going case.

Ini perjuangan kita bersama. Inilah kerajaan berdasar islam hadhari yang diamalkan dan dipertunjukan oleh pak alim, yang sudah di anggap semakin lama dia duduk di atas semakin zalim perbuatan nya kepada rakyat jelata.

Sekian, kali le low hu!!

Thanks, hasilox.

On AAB, perhaps if he doesn't have an acute case of priapism, he won't need all these 'expensive' toys to begin with.

All form and no substance.

unexistance said...

we can talk, tok tokkok all we want, and then in the next general election, vote the same party/front again..
And then we talk some more..

p/s: maybe we should be like Thai??
lol

zewt said...

yeah, unexistence is right... all we do is just talk. really... that's all we do.

shar101 said...

Hasilox,

Firewall called again.

'Security/Defense team'. Wow! Sounds ominously like some 'black ops' outfit. You're wanted!

Seriously, apart from what you mentioned about PC basics, there is still the issue of e-mail 'infiltration' and/or 'interception'. If so, I believe there is still a way to overcome such cases. A hidden message without a proper password to decode will remain 'unseen'. Obviously, the password needs to be sent separately to the intended recipient. A minimum eight digit alphanumeric password should be used.

Standard encryption software is readily available but military-grade stuff may not be legal(?).

You might want to do PC basics for 'regular' bloggers and higher end stuff for Rocky, Sheih and others.

Gerubuk said...

Apologies to Pasquale for my mis-comprehension ( yes, moron-la! )and for pointing out that 'it' will come to pass 8 days from Jan 26, 'but will be without serious consequences.'

Hope whoever is to kena bertaubat dulu dan berhasrat untuk cabut lari secepat mungkin, ya!.

Whatever it is, I'll buy you guys a drink at NPC or elsewhere.

Cheers,

While campaigning for the 1994 (or was it 1995) general election, when party ideological lines were more well defined, Dr. Syed Husin Ali said of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim joining UMNO, seemingly to reform it from within, that "...the problem with climbing into the shit pot is that you inevitably get dirty."

It was after 1998 that political lines started getting blurred. Datuk Seri Anwar suddenly went from bad guy to good guy, Partai Rakyat Malaysia merged with Keadilan to become PKR.

DAP, PAS and even Parti Sosialis Malaysia sudednly supported Anwar, and now politics in Malaysia has reached a rather fuzzy definition, a clear;y defined lines of demarcation converged and blurred.

While Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was deputy PM, some said he would be a lame duck prime minister, weak, ineffectual, indecisive, though a nice person and less controvertial than Dr. Mahathir, especially in the eyes of the western world.

I once wrote somewhere that Malaysia would flounder with no clear direction and eventually degenrate after Abdullah Badawi became prime minister.

After he finally did, I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, especially with his outward shows of dealing with corruption in the civil service, etc.

However, several years later, it seems the many earlier pessimistic predictions, including my own are coming to and have come to pass.

While the "dogs of war" -- a.k.a. the mainstream media have been unleased and given the press "freedom" to attack Tun Mahathir; the democratic rights of the people to protest higher fuel prices, higher tolls, higher water charges and so on are denied with arrests and even the police baton.

While it is no crime to buy a business jet for government use, after alll the president of the United States has luxury widebody airliners, such extravagant public spending when the country and people are in hardship is a gross extravagance on the government's part.

That brings to mind Dr. Syed Husin Ali's words, ".. when you climb into the shit pot, you inevitably get dirty."

Unfortunately, many rural voters and urban poor will continue voting for the shit pot and are not among the English-literate privileged few the with Internet access to be able to read blogs like this one.

Brings to mind the populist policies of Thaksin Shinawatra and his Thai Rak Thai party. How they purchased the loyalty of the rural folk and urban working class and lower income groups, with a few crumbs thrown their way.

Thus the Shitpot Coalition gets voted in time and time again, however much the English-educated, satellite TV-watching, Internet surfing urban yuppietariate may complain and whine.

Change can only come when the rural folk and urban poor realise that there is nothing left in the present shitpot-run system for them.

Also they must be convinced of a viable alternative, which can viably offer them a better deal.

However, having a viable alternative is an even bigger question, when alternative parties themselves are picking on single or trivial issues, without offering a viable all-round solution to economic, social, political, educational, healthcare, housing, developmental and other issues of concern to most people.

PMB is 100-percent-owned company of Finance Ministry and if PMB already has bought the aircraft, why is the government then leasing it from them?

The plane is still government owned in the end. And why did PMB buy it in the first place?

Isn’t this all the same, only merely a pushing of paperwork around? It’s akin to saying that ‘No, the car is not mine but I am leasing it from my wife’.

I agree with nstman...the masses will still vote for bn because many just do not have the guts to transform their anger into real action.

a change from within umno...? i do not see that happening either if all HIS henchmen are kaki kipas. He could be buying the entire Antartica for all I care and all his henchmen will hail the purchase as something beneficial to malaysia.

beneficial to malaysia or to a certain malaysian...?
