Nahas Nuri...






ON July 13th 2007 an RMAF Nuri helicopter crashed into a deep ravine in the dense forest 5km to the west of the Genting Sempah Tunnel. Six Air Force crewmembers were killed in that crash. I remember images of the ambulance lined up on the grounds of the Kuala Lumpur General Hospital as the first of the helicopters carrying the bodies of these Crew Members came into sight. Silent crowd watch with all eyes on the families of those waiting for the arrival of their love one now dead.  As you hear the instantly recognizable sound of the helicopter when it came to land you can feel the sorrow touching everyone there. There was not much to say as they carried the first body of the aircrew from the helicopter to the waiting ambulance. I remember too that there was no anger in me that day. Only sadness.






Sebagai negara Malaysia yang telah 50 tahun merdeka,mampukah lagi kita sebagai rakyat malaysia untuk melihat Wira udara kita yang terlatih mati tanpa berjuang dengan begitu sahaja..dan lebih menyedihkan apabila Nuri yang terhempas di tanah air kita sendiri memakan masa berhari2 untuk mencarinya...Kepada Kerajaan,adakah tentera kita mampu mempertahankan negara di saat negara kita diserang dengan adanya kelengkapan perang yang telah lama di ditelan zaman...
Al fatihah..
