Increadible picture! What an amazing plane... What a great airline! If she got to be a girl, she would surely be a top model!  Smile

This is interesting. I wonder if this particular 757 was leased. SQ's four 757-212's have no over wing emergency exits but this particular one does ! By the way all 4 757-212s are with Delta now.

9V-SGL is an owned aircraft.

The 757 first arrived in 1984 for SIA to evaluate it, together with the A310. Passengers complained about the single aisle on the 757, so SIA sold two originally to American Trans Air and 2 to Delta. All four are with Delta. SIA obviously decided on the A310 as its regional workforce. Now it is being taken over by the 777-212ER aircraft.

Same bird (ex. 9V-SGL) quite a few years later. I´d prefer flying it to Bali....
