TRIBUTE: The crew behind Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370.

Earlier, we published a tribute article on Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah showing just how passionate he is about aviation.

We’d like to also bring attention to a few of the other brave crew members of MH370 and to show that they are ordinary people like you and me who were put in an extraordinary situation.

Our thoughts go out to everyone on Flight MH370, their family and their friends. judi slot online

I’m sure photographers will agree that some of his shots are really good. Here are some of the pictures he’s taken:

Mohd Hazrin Mohamed Hasnan, Flight Steward


Originally from Petaling Jaya, Hazrin or “Rain” as he is known on Facebook studied at Sekolah Menengah Subang Jaya.

Edit: Sharelor reader Megat has notified us that Hazrin studied in Sekolah Menengah Subang Jaya, not Sekolah Menengah Sains Johor as originally stated.

Also, we recommend that you take a look at his Instagram page as he has some really great photos. 

One notable image from Instagram that @rainhasnan posted is this one he took with Chef Wan on a flight to Dubai:


He even made a joke about nasi lemak: “@chefwan58 jom makan nasi lemak.. heheheh.. anyways its being a pleasure serving u onboard flight to dxb. Such a humble person.”Hazrin was referring to this nasi lemak issue. If anyone knows Chef Wan personally, can you please reach out and share this photograph with him?
