Wan Amran Wan Hussin, 50, the pilot of the Malaysia Airlines/Pic:NSTWan Amran Wan Hussin, 50, the pilot of the Malaysia Airlines/Pic:NSTKEMAMAN: Wan Amran Wan Hussin, 50, the pilot of the Malaysia Airlines flight that crashed in Ukraine yesterday, had stated his intention to perform the Haj later this year, according to his nephew Amaluddin Noorshah, 48.
He had expressed the intention to his elder sister, Wan Aini, when he returned to his village in Kota Lama Kiri, Kuala Kangsar, Perak, to break fast with relatives last week, Amaluddin said.
I felt a difference in the tone of his voice when he said that, he said when contacted by Bernama.
Amaluddin said he did not realise that that was the last time he would meet his uncle.
I learnt from a family WhatsApp network about what happened. All of us felt a weakness spread through our bodies when we found out that Wan Amran was the pilot of that ill-fated flight, he said.
The MAS flight, MH17, was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it went down in Ukraine. It was carrying 280 passengers and 15 crew.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said early today that Ukrainian authorities believe that the Boeing 777 was shot down.
Amaluddin said his uncle had been piloting Boeing aircraft for more than 20 years.
He was very close to his siblings and contributed much to charity. His wife and two sons live in Shah Alam, he said.
Amaluddin said he had been close to his uncle since his childhood days.
you could not pay me to fly this stupid airline
I hope they go out of business , even as the so-called national airline .
When their third plane disappears under suspicious circumstances, do you think it’ll look odd?
They were on my company’s no fly list ten years ago.
How sad. Bet he still made it into hell for following satanallah his whole life.
Let’s all march of to WWIII. And, years later, when we find out this was all due to some Malaysian nuts sabotaging their airline, we can ignore it and thank the victims for making us free.
Muzzie pilot with over 100 AIDS (pro-gay) activists aboard. Hmmmmmm...
What makes you think this will lead to WWIII?
Will it matter? Nothing happening today is addressed that should be...especially from our country. The strong voice that once was has flat-lined under this administration and congress.
Was he yelling ali akbar on descent?
A bit of exaggeration. Maybe. I just hope Obama doesn't try to show us how tough he is by getting us into a war with Russia. There's plenty of "tough guys" whooping for war now.
