This follows the arrival of a special decorated Harimau Muda aircraft at the SAE Hangar in Sepang last Friday by Air Asia.

The ‘painting’ known as the “Semangat Harimau Muda” livery displays the roaring Malaysian Tiger that has been the symbol of the country’s football team.

The livery was promised by AirAsia Group CEO Tan Seri Tony in honouring the team’s success for winning the 2011 2011 Sea Games football gold medal.
