LANGKAWI

FOR lo­cal boy Ma­jor No­razan Oth­man, 38, fly­ing at the Langkawi In­ter­na­tional Mar­itime and Aero­space (Lima) ex­hi­bi­tion is al­ways a joy.

But two years ago, dur­ing a re­hearsal for Lima 2015, the Sukhoi SU-30MKM pi­lot al­most lost his life when his air­craft encountered a me­chan­i­cal prob­lem.

He kept his cool and re­cov­ered the air­craft, but he cred­its his mother’s prayers for sav­ing his life.
