SQ 777 At LHR Saturday 3rd?

Sun Nov 04, 2007 2:40 pm

I might have been mistaken but was sure a Singapore 777 flew over my house inbound to LHR a few miles away, I thought they only used 747 at LHR.

I don't see any potential B777s going astray in the system from the Singapore Saturday and Sunday analysis. Maybe you saw something else?

SQ2501 is a codeshare flight with Virgin Atlantic Airways marketed by Singapore Airlines Limited.
Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

Could it have been Jet Airways - looks a little similar from a distance.
