SQ A340 At EWR At 11AM Today, Why?

Mon Aug 21, 2006 8:18 am

Does anyone know whe one of SQ's A340's was at still EWR today (sunday at around 11 am EST today ) It was parked away from the jetway as i drove by the airport on my way to the beach and i just saw it again around 4 pm on the way home. I believe its the same aircraft that arrived last night , and never left for SIN.

According to the SIA website, flight 21 never left EWR on Saturday, 8/19. It's scheduled to leave at 11am (+2) which I guess means Monday 8/21. Perhaps there's some crew rest issues??? Or could be the nature of the mechanical delay.

Supposely engine problems, it circled over NY for 75 minutes, it was pretty strange looking at the flight take place live on flightaware.com, in the end there was about 200 circles before it returned to EWR There is a newer post explaining that sparks and smoke was reported by the pax.
