Looks like Egypt Air leased A4O-LE from Gulf Air for a while ...

The reason of 9K-ANC is even said on the page you refer with a link. It has been "LEASED" to SV, maybe for special charters. As far as I know 9K-ANC has a normal configuration, I only flew with 9K-AND.

Guess there is no special story behind the SQ.
