Looks like the plane was 9M-MXX.

Some photos on this Facebook page, is that hail on the runway or just large raindrops continuing to fall?

sibu as diversion alternate from kuching?

if sibu was in fact an alternate after typical late night bad weather over kuching,
sibu was or bust, worse weather, worse high ground ,lousy unreliable beacon let down.
been there , almost done that.(But i opted for kuching, lucky to get in too, thank God for maxaret)

From Wikipedia:

Dunlop's Maxaret was the first anti-lock braking system (ABS) to be widely used. Introduced in the early 1950s, Maxaret was rapidly taken up in the aviation world, after testing found a 30% reduction in stopping distances, and the elimination of tyre bursts or flat spots due to skids.
