Sands Corporation 747SP At XMN

Fri Oct 05, 2012 12:59 am

I live in Xiamen. And yesterday I was in my house when I heard a loud roar, it sounded unusual. I looked out side, and from the window, where all day what you can see is just A320s and 737s(and rarely 767s), I said, oh my god......

This fat plane was climbing steeply
I grabbed my camera, and snapped this photo:
After some search, I realized it was Sands Corporation's 747SP.

Whats it doing in XMN?
And what registration was it? VP-BLK or VQ-BMS?

TAECO has a huge maintenance facility in XMN, been there with 2 MD11's back then. Maybe it was undergoing some sort of check?
