Singapore Airlines Boeing 777 Caught Fire

It will be very young rather than present. Though this age may be too old for Southeast Asian carriers fleets, as a comparison, GIA’s average fleet age is about 5 years old


Still, will miss 9V-SWB if SIA choose to scrap it (Though this option is very unlikely as SIA still needs more aircraft on Low-Yield routes)

Screenshot of the replacement aircraft. The aircraft is 9V-SWF and currently flying over India subcontinent

She will return to service, all she needs is a new engine, flaps, and fuel tank.

#UPDATE: Fuel leak/dumped fuel is to blame for the engine fire upon the emergency landing (because of oil temperature warnings)

Fortunately everybody has survived and the plane is not crashed. Now I wondering, will the plane repared or not? Maybe the plane will get a new wing?

Not just a wing definitely a new engine and possibly new starboard landing gear

We’re waiting on a SIA statement about wether it is going to the scrapyard or they are going to spend millions to repair it and only use it for a few more years

I don’t think so, it might have been that the situation would have been easier to fix since SIA engineering company is based in WSSS

It make sense to the whole story.

I’ll pray that SIA will fix it instead sending 9V-SWB to scrapeyard like what SQTalk members stated :(

Hmm, the pieces of the puzzle are forming. We’ll be waiting for more info from Authorities, the Aircraft Incident Investigation team and SIA for now.

Though until now I’m still waiting the SIA A333 engine problem which happened last year and we haven’t heard the official reports until today :/

EDIT : It’s already out exactly a year after the incident
http://avherald.com/h?article=486d5637&opt=0

Once the incident report comes out I will be posting it on this topic

I think the report will out a year again
(It’s the fastest IMO)

The fastest i have seen was 4 months

Usually SAIB investigation takes about a year IIRC
(Like SIA and DAL A319 distance while took off from Houston and last year engine shutdown)

The 777 engines aren’t doing well recently, last year a BA 772 had an engine fire at LAS (Las Vegas) and now a Singapore Airlines 777 had and engine on fire, not to mention BA38 at EGLL in 2008.

Also the koreanair 777 at HND.
