RM50 mill F5E engine missing. Is that a tip of an iceberg?



1. An interesting news appeared in the NST today where it was reported that the RMAF is missing a RM50 mill F5E engine. I laugh when I read the news. The first thing I did was sent a few SMS to some friends whom had seen retired from the Air Force. The former Air Force chief replied my SMS with a simple message; “Malaysia Boleh”.

2. Who could imagine that a RM50 mill engine in the Air Force logistic HQ in Sungei Besi can go missing? The news paper quoted the AF Chief, reported that it is a tip of an iceberg. There is a possibility that many things has gone missing. Things that was hardly used. In the case of the F5E engine, the Air Force wanted to test their remaining F5 two-seater in its inventory and they found out that some of them are in good working order. It was when they decided to replace the engine of one of the aircraft that they realized that it was missing.

3. If my memory serves me correctly, a few years ago while I was in TUDM, there were rumors that the someone went into the Sg. Besi camp in the early hours of the morning and drove away with the Air Force chief car. I think they still haven’t found the car till today.

4. On June 25th, 1988, Lt Wahi Anuar Mat Amin which flew the Skyhawk from Kuantan towards Labuan, break his formation and disappeared in the South China Sea. His remain or pieces of the Skyhawk aircraft was never found till today despite the international efforts involving the Indonesian, US and Singapore Armed Forces.

5. It seems the RMAF have the habits of losing their assets regularly. I wonder what else would go missing. My gut feeling says that I don’t think the RMAF actually knows what they have and what they don’t. They better count how many bombs and missiles that they actually have.

6. I suspect that they would not even realize that something is missing until when someone wants to use it. May I suggest that the Air Force chief buy a bunch of padlocks from the hardware shop and fixed it on the remaining Russian made fighter jets and the C130s transport aircraft? We don’t want someone does a David Copperfield magic and the whole C130 would disappear from the tarmac! Ai yo! Yo!, chief, bikin malu la saja.

Enjin Disedari Hilang Apabila Ia Tidak Sampai Ke Destinasi, Kata Zahid
BALIK PULAU, 19 Dis (Bernama) -- Enjin pesawat pemintas F-5E milik Tentera Udara Diraja Malaysia (TUDM) disedari hilang pada 2007 apabila enjin yang hendak diperbaiki itu tidak sampai ke destinasi yang dihantar, kata Menteri Pertahanan Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Beliau berkata kehilangan enjin itu disedari pada tahun 2007 dan beberapa tindakan serta siasatan dilakukan secara dalaman terlebih dahulu, yang turut membabitkan polis.

"Siasatan mendapati bahawa sistem penghantaran yang digunakan TUDM cukup baik, tetapi mungkin ia dilakukan oleh kumpulan bawahan, cukup terancang dengan (bantuan) pihak luar," katanya kepada pemberita selepas majlis pelancaran kompeni askar wataniah Pulau Pinang dan Kedah Selatan di sini pada Sabtu.

Menurutnya Kementerian Pertahanan sedang meneruskan siasatan berhubung kes itu, dan memandangkan ia masih dalam siasatan pihak berkuasa, TUDM tidak dapat memberikan maklumat secara terperinci mengenainya kerana ia melibatkan aspek perundangan.

Beberapa akhbar tempatan hari ini melaporkan polis menahan empat orang termasuk pegawai TUDM berhubung kehilangan enjin pesawat pemintas F-5E bernilai kira-kira RM50 juta itu.

Zahid berkata sistem yang terdapat di ATM dirombak sepenuhnya sejak kehilangan enjin pesawat itu disedari, dan aspek pemantauan turut ditingkatkan terhadap prosedur, inventori serta kawalan terhadap setiap pergerakan aset.

"Saya juga ingin pastikan bahawa sistem yang ada dalam inventori di ketiga-tiga cabang perkhidmatan ATM dipantau dan dikemaskan mengikut kehendak semasa," tambahnya. - Bernama

Aku cuma nak kata:
Menteri Pertahanan Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, kalau nak buat kenyataan, tolong lah buat kenyataan yang rasional dan yang punya standard sebagai seorang menteri yang sekolah tinggi dan bukan nya keyataan macam orang sekolah atap. Ada paham.

Mengapa terus menuduh mungkin dilakukan oleh
orang bawahan. Beliau tak tahu ke yang orang bawahan ini walau disektor mana sekali pun hanya lah melaksanakan arahan kerja. Orang suruh buat dia buat. Itu lah rutin kerja orang bawah. Ada lah amat mustahil enjin tersebut boleh hilang tanpa 'lampu hijau' dari orang atasan. Patut nya DS Ahmad Zahid jangan sebut orang atas atau orang bawah. Sebut saja anggota TUDM.

Beliau juga kata sistem yang digunakan TUDM
cukup baik. Kalau cukup baik mengapa perlu dirombak sepenuh nya. Itu menunjukan kan sistem TUDM kurang baik sehingga terpaksa dirombak sepenuh nya dan bukan sebahagian nya.
