The Missing 'Virgin' Bird

SUKHOI: Lost at Peak

When aviation industry grows faster, the sky much more fogged by the burnt. But what if it crushes before reaching the height of cloud? The unfortunate accident has just readily surprised attention of more merely than 'decent crush'. SUKHOI for first time flies into Indonesia when huge of mission and dreams. The archipelago countriy now need more than some aircrafts but much many aircrafts. To link the widespread islands obviously we need stuff to make it connected.

I was just keeping my attention on recent plan the existence of Embraer spotting in the country, as Garuda Indonesia ordered for additional fleet to reach likely remote airport. Not to missing the blooming B737-900ER or the NEO version of Boeing to fly more frequent as Lion Air dealt on track. Meanwhile Airbus still runs on the numerous order. Other airlines companies never left blank the space of fulfillment. But once Sukhoi made an initial flight into the country, attention has been dragged already. Nothing more than exciting to watch the advantage of competitiveness, it turned into misery story. It is such a great movement after the coldwar Russian Sukhoi attempts to stand more robust, at least to maintain its existence. The first way was taken through commercial airlines by introducing SUKHOI SJ-100 which is capable to carry 100 people onboard. It matches as many as its suffix version.Though it just readily flies this year to Indonesia, it was comercially used by Aeroflot, Armavia and so allied countries. 

SUKHOI flies more than a commercial purpose, instead it's sort of soft diplomacy to close the relationship between Red Bear country and the home country. The history of last misery World War II story is not instantly evaporated. But today might be a different age. Whatever, here I see Indonesia possibly returns to be object of the advantage of competitiveness.

No advantage to maintain negative thought, we would have seen the tragedy of Sukhoi hitting peak of Mount Salak, West Java as the new phase of the world, particularly world of aviation. There must be more various type of aircraft crossing the sky and definitely will carry more and more people on the journey of sky. Yet the national aircraft manufature (PT DI) has no more (not yet) option to give birth more (bigger) birds. However it is still being the producer of  parts of some notable aircrafts (not many Indonesian realize this, I guess).

Lastly, the accident has been a new sign of another history. The investigation is now still being conducted. We properly do hope searching of the casulaties will have found the light.

Condolence to the casulties.

'Beliebers' At Crossroads

'Beliebers' At Crossroads

Bieber's Concert in Indonesia (March 2011)

 It was lot of yelling, shooting : "Bieber!, Bieber!, ...." and so fourth repeated for so many several times all night long. Even much more before the concert held at Sentul International Convention Center, Bogor. Justin Bieber, a Canadian, American based YouTube singer who turned into a teen musical phenomenon deserved to get praise at his preimier concert in Indonesia last March 2011. Girls were just around hectic from his arrival at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport until his departure. Indonesian TV broadcasted vividly from concert preparation till the due day. My friends were also got into euphoria of 'crazy' excitement, I guess. Yeah, undeniably "Beliebers" - Bieber's fans club - blasted and owned the week of the star visit to Indonesia.

Just few days ago since a 'regrettable' interview in London where Bieber held its concert for album launching "Believe", Raggie Yates the co-presenter asked for some questions, Bieber answered the question by scrawling. "Mocked the English accent, and insulted Indonesia, and threw a hissy hit", one of London Tabloid published the last concert

The Jakarta Post recently reported "Indonesian radio bans Bieber's songs over 'insult' ". Medan city based Kiss FM reacted to 'hurted' statement said by "Baby" song singer to ban his song for insulting contry's fourth populous nation on the planet. "Random country" Bieber said and "Indonesia" clarified by his manager to point out where he recorded one of his song with unsatisfaying result. Accordingly London news issued the circumstance of offensive Bieber's concert, Indonesian media reacted to more likely immediate.

I was just sitting in front of TV set and some of leading national channel aired the news. TvOne, MetroTV, and so others, not to missing 'entertainment news' to seemingly whisper audience "another (bad) thing about Bieber". For some (serious) adult people it may be not a news, yet it comes with very different reaction over teenager in Indonesia. Beliebers are whom taking confusing way, to defend or just throwing away their idol. Few of friends of mine who are Beliebers, would have taken  their choice, I guess.

Twitter has been remarked by worldwide trending topic of this case, excatly most coming from Twitter Republic, -Indonesian teen-. To many words which narrow toward merely two ways, Defend or Defeat. Yet Bieber refused to underdog Indonesia, particularly his fan through his account @justinbieber. It's quitely important or perhaps necessary for Bieber to maintain his fans and reputation particularly in Indonesia since his crowded fans are around here for huge Twitter addict and outnumber

Now, it has been enough clear, we learn something that precious: "Manner" is everything, worldwidely applies to anyone even a superstar.
