Has anyone found our jet engine yet?

Apparently not.

But not to despair. Armed Forces chief Azizan Ariffin assured Malaysians that Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) operations would not be affected by the mere loss of one F-5E jet engine.

“The missing jet engine does not affect RMAF operations because we have more than 16 F-5E jets and only seven are used for tactical missions,” he told reporters after the annual parade and prize giving at the Royal Military College here today.

    they still dont get it..the public is appalled not becoz of whether rmaf is still able to function after this fiasco but to the lack of scrutiny.. did they sell it to the talibans?

    The engine could be anywhere by now, couldn’t it?

    There definitely is a market for such General Electric J85 engines out there.

    Here is just one example of a company selling used J85s

    Title of the article is not quite right anymore. It should go…

    Has anyone found our jet ENGINES yet?

    YUp, our Zaid has just informed the public that not one, but 2 jet engines have gone missing, including spare parts of the fighter plane.

    And I must repeat Najib, there is no cover up. One, I mean 2 jet engines (with the option of adding other military hardware at a latter date) has been stolen.
