06:00 pick up this morning, definitely not my normally leisurely 09:15 pick up. The reason was because we had to catch up flights from the previous week, this also meant it was going to be a long day! A nice strong Kopi Hitam (Black coffee) did help get things started:) Tower was again a little incompetent today which did not help the early morning start, they opted to make us hold on downwind and then gave us a tailwind landing just because of other traffic coming in 15 nm out. Weather today was a little interesting with a few CBs around, but nothing too serious.
I also said goodbye to my girlfriend for the next 3 months and one of the best ground staff Nisa.
Today was just one of those days.

Is it common to have incompetent tower staff in the remote airports?
I haven’t seen any more pictures of you and your girlfriend. Are you still together?
Unfortunately in most places yes. But you just get used to it and prepare for it.
Yes, we are still together;) just keep it off social media.
