When MH transported home the remains of the first Malaysian passengers from MH17 from AMS to KUL, two B747-400Fs which normally wear "MASkargo" titles had "Malaysia Airlines" titles applied instead. 9M-MPS was eventually used for this purpose. 9M-MPR is pictured here landing at home base was likely stand-by aircraft. It was a very thoughtful act by MH to apply these titles, to ensure that the returning passengers were not seen as cargo, but as passengers. I applaud MH! [Nikon D4s]

Classy MH, classy. Saw the first Australians return home to MEL yesterday on a RAAF C17. It brings a tear to the eye.
