Report of a group visit to LIMA 2015 at Langkawi in Malaysia in March 2015.
Full of good intentions, a group of 10 aviation photographers gathered at Schiphol on Tuesday 10 March 2015, ready for departure to Malaysia. Main reason for the trip was the bi-annual show at Langkawi, called LIMA. Unfortunately Malaysia Airlines was not working along and our flight was delayed because of an engine failure (although we were already taxiing to the runway). Many delays and new departure times were communicated but in the end Malaysia Airlines could not fix the aircraft so we were transferred to the KLM flight. With no less than 33 hours delay we finally managed to depart to Kuala Lumpur (on Thursday 12 March already)! Luckily, our program had some room for delay so we were confident that we would not miss anything. After arrival in warm and moist Kuala Lumpur we picked up the rental vehicles and headed to our hotel. The original plan was to visit Subang and Sungai Besi but due to the delay we skipped these bases and drove straight to the hotel. After an easy ride and a first introduction to Malaysian cuisine we arrived in our hotel.
