nah, just out for a test flight. Sometimes they do 'weird' routes...couple of weeks ago it flew to Sacramento.

I've also seen flights to places like Casper, WY and Rapid City, SD.

Get out there with the good ole camera and get a shot into the database! It would be fun to have such an airline as Singapore Airlines @SLC in the database, not to mention a 773ER! I think there is only an SU 772 from 2002 @SLC in the photo d-base right now.  camera

How exciting for it.

Considering SIA is getting 6 B77Ws by 31 Dec 2006 at the latest, one wonders why no one's seen SWC, SWD, SWE, and SWF. Probably in the Boeing hangar somewhere being painted or something?

I took the Boeing tour over the weekend, and I saw two more SQ 773ERs being assembled.

Two frames were all done and standing outside. I'm guessing one of those is in the picture above. A third frame was almost complete; it was at the landing gear station, and the fourth was just having its flight deck installed.

Also being assembled right now are another Thai 772ER and EK 777 (not sure whether it is an LR or 773ER...I could only see the tail).

SLC, the airport itself, is only 474 m (1,555 ft) in altitude, but there's plenty other airports in the Andes that are a lot higher, like La Paz, Bolivia!

Yes you can dream. Dreaming is fun.

If DL is wondering, AM is operating a bunch of T7 out of MEX, EK out of sweaty DXB and I'm not gonna list'em all...

High? 4000 ft? Well, this is only IF DL is very reluctant about the super T7. Almost an insult for the 77W.
When I doubt... go running!

How cool it must be SLC area residents to see a 773ER. I agree that it must be doing high altitude or some sort of testing.

Thanks for making this clarification. Of the major top 25 busiest passenger airports in the U.S. only DEN is higher at 5,300'(1,615m).

Seems like they fly them around to various airports. Way back when I saw the second 777 - in United colors - at PDX, prior to certification. Glad I had a radio along. They landed, taxied back to the end of the runway, then sat for about 15 minutes deciding where to go next - they were discussing maybe Sacramento or back to Seattle with the tower.
