SIA's Tropical Winds - Any Other?

Wed Nov 01, 2000 2:27 pm

I was in Amsterdam on Sunday Oct 29th and managed to see and photograph the SIA 747 "Tropical Winds" livery. I was saddened to hear of it crashing today. Was that the only jet painted in that scheme or were there others?

No, there's at least another 744 painted in the scheme, it said on one of the photos here at

If you search with the reg of the crashed aircraft you'll eventually come across it.

There are two aircrafts painted in the tropical livery. 9V-SPL and 9V-SPK (the one that crashed).
BTW: I've flown on both of them
