Well done En Ismail, I'm very proud to see a colleague tales and experience during tour of duty at various RMAF Bases. Your story can be shared by new generation aircrew if they are interested, but in the RAF,RAAF,RNZAF they appreciate it. Anyhow my best wishes to you and keep on with your interesting story. Best Regards to you as well fellow comrades who follow this.
