Sq's -300's

Fri Apr 06, 2001 3:22 pm

i know that we have had this subject, but wanted to ask sin spotters (or anybody else with possible sq inside info) what is now happening with the remaining -300's.

there was the african star deal, the repainted -300 in african star colours, with and without south african registration, there was the white -300 with the different blue shades painted on top, the blue/green purple one and probably others.
over the last few days one of the -300's got stripped (paint), save for the still blue vertical stab. all stripped of color she looks a bit olike one of the very 'worn' nw 747-100 freighters.....
just saw her taking off from changi, probably for flight testing.

anybody with more info out there what's happening with sq's -300's, eg rego's 9v-sk. ?
