SQ 747 At MHM On 12th October 2002

Sun Oct 13, 2002 11:35 am

I was in Macau yesterday (Saturday) and although I was nowhere near the airport (I was on the neighbouring island of Coloanne), I could see a Singapore Airline 747-400 parked near to the freight facility. This seems to be unfamiliar as I thought SQ ceased passenger flights to Macau some time ago. Can any one tell me if this is a regular flight, a special charter or what?

Thanks in advance!

Macau is one of SIA Cargo's destination, could it be a B744F you saw?

MHM is Minchumin in Alaska. Macau is MFM.

If memory serves me correct, SIA flies SIN-MFM-ANC-US with 744F during summer time.

Bigo747 - Thanks, yes a slip of the digit!! Yes it could well have been a freighter, I was with friends who did not want to venture near to the airport!
