Well, is it a case of keeping up with the neighbours (Malaysia)?

Yes, agreeed,this had to be one of the most poignant and noticeable alternative livery schemes of any carrier-and brilliantly done..colorful yet tasteful.

However, may I querie that this may have been the ship lost in the TPE (to LAX) runway accident several years back...SQ's ONLY fatal accident?

Just curious-as I have not ever seen it again, and I fly SQ 2-3 times a month and in SIN frequently for business and connections-and as noted, not seen in a long time.

Cheers

When I first saw this, I thought it was 9V-SPK, the SQ 744 that crashed in Taiwan in 2000 :( It had the exact same scheme. However, glad that it's not the same bird... she's a beauty!

The 747 looks wonderful in any paint scheme. Looks good here as well.

The design painting is cool but the way the aircraft ended was a shame.

This is my favorite livery of any aircraft.

I refer to the post on April 27 above. SQ painted their 747-412 fllet with this livery in 2000 to promote their new First Class cabin but after the fatal crash of one of these planes at Taipei they decided to remove this livery altogether.

I guess they didn't want any bad memories. Pity though

And my condolences to all those whole lost their friends and family on that plane

Just for clarity, not the whole SQ 747 fleet was painted this way; only two ac, 9V-SPK (1099th 747 built, delivered January 1997) and 9V-SPL, indeed to promote the introduction of their then-new first class product (and new business class too?). 9V-SPK, so the sistership of this one, unfortunately crashed due to pilot error during take-off at Taipei hammered by typhoon Xangsane, 31-10-2000, from the wrong rway, 05R instead of 05L, while it was 'closed' and undergoing maintenance. And yes SIA then rushed to get rid of this livery on SPL because of the bad memories and publicity they had gotten in this tropical 'fruitsalad' style... but superstition was apparently a major factor, too...
