Balasungkawa

Semasa 'mentelaah'  BUKU HARIAN PENERBANGAN PEMANDU (Log Book), saya dapati ramai dari rakan seperjuangan semasa berkhidmat di dalam TUDM sudah tiada lagi buat selama-lamanya. Mereka terdiri daripada 'squad-mates' TJT (Tauliah Jangka Tetap) Intake 11 semenjak di Maktab Tentera Diraja (MTD) lagi, rakan-rakan dari Intake 14 TJP (Tauliah Jangka Pendek) namun ditauliah pada hari yang sama, mereka yang bersama mengikuti kursus penerbangan di SEA Helicopter, 'junior ' semasa kursus penerbangan,  dan mereka yang sama-sama di Skuadron di suatu ketika dulu.

Beliau dari TJP 14, bersama mengikuti kursus penerbangan di SEA Helicopter dan berkhidmat di No 3 Skn, TUDM Butterworth. Sila baca coretan "US-Made Pilots".

Mej. Nor,
,,,very sad indeed, please send my condolence to Thiagarajah's family on my behalf & Bib o.k. thanks !. Yes indeed, I still remembered the 1st day he and Affendi reported for duty at 3 Sqn. while I was the Adjutent and he nearly broke through the wooden floor with his stand-up salute !!. Told him that in the RMAF, an Adjutent is just the office boy but he insisted that the 'tabik hormat' was for the office as per his Army days !! hehehe. Well, monitored his progress even after his services into the civilian market, where he flew for the heli-logging company in Sarawak for a short while b4 progressing further into his aviation career !. May God bless his soul.
,,,Ramai lagi aircrew kita missing from your list-lah, suggest you get the full list from MINDEF ?. i.e. The Tebuan fighter pilots, those aircrew killed in Sabah on the Fixed Wing that flew into the mountains !. Capt Nasir Ma not too long ago, Lt(U) Shahruddin (pak Hitam) near Fort Chabai, Lt(U) Rashif, Lt(U) Patvinder Singh, Mej(U)Joginder Singh, Lt/mej Azam ex-Army plus many others that I can't recall as yet myself right now, brains not functioning too good, dah tua-lah. Perhaps by now not less than 50 aircrew, if am not mistaken yaa ?. I nearly died a couple of times too myself but survived to this day ! hohoho.
,,,Al-Fatihah atas roh roh mereka..good bye my/our buddies, all will be remembered with good memories of the flying days together.

In my serving days in the jungle bordering Thailand, I may have cursed the Nuri pilot who made me live in hunger in waiting for our supply sorties. I may have cursed the Nuri pilot who made me blasting and cutting trees in making LPs and LZs for their safe and secured landing. I may have cursed the Nuri pilot who made me running uphill and downhill for his choice of LPs and burnt one LP I built to force him to land on another LP of my choice. I may have cursed the Nuri pilot who made me going through the night with my dying wounded soldier to only come to my aid the next sunshine day. I may have cursed the Nuri pilot who keeps sending me into OA by air and letting me journeyed home to base on foot.

I may have cursed all Nuri pilots who had served with me in and out the jungle of Grik, Keroh, Jeli and Banding throughout the turbulence years of fighting insurgency, to pay tribute to all dead pilots who have served the ground forces with dedication, fighting spirit, bravery and unselfishness in "exposing themselves as target while hovering", in keeping the swearing soldiers highly spirited each time we heard the sound of a Nuri lingering above.

I bid farewell to all heroes of the sky.
