Aircraft wreck MalaysiaBefore eHangar.com was born in 2003, I had created a few other aviation-related sites. Mind you, these were literally hand-coded, typing in raw HTML codes into a text editor, and thus were very basic in appearance and functionality. These old sites are long gone from the Internet, but one day I thought of a subsite I built before and dug into my old backups, and lo and behold, I found the original HTML files!

This subsite from my old flight2000.com site came about when a newspaper reported the finding of a wreck in a Malaysian forest. Aviation forums and netizens attempted to identify the wreck from the photos posted, and this subsite was my contribution to the effort. My armchair sleuthing helped to identify the wreck, which is why I have always been proud of this subsite which chronicled my efforts.

I have uploaded the original HMTL files here as a nostalgic look back to the year 2000. It is like a time capsule of an earlier Internet era of look and feel. Some of the netizen friends I made during that time 17 years ago have remained in touch with me – Nippon Goh was just an earnest young aviation enthusiast then, but now flies the F/A-18 Hornet in the Royal Malaysian Air Force, while Shaharom Ahmad is a founding member of the Malaya Historical Group, which is dedicated to military archaeology.

Check out the subsite at http://ehangar.com/wreck/wreck.html
