Work has been dominating my life but I was able to get this shot a few days ago during sunset. This is a pretty detailed look at 9V-SCA. I don't think it's exposed right for the database so I'll post it here for you guys to enjoy.
Delivery will happen at night unfortunately. Pretty disappointed about that.
I still find it odd that the 780's engine isnt painted off-white faint light grey as with every other SQ plane in service. Is SQ revising its livery code again, or is it just temporary?https://www.planespotters.net/photo/704 ... -777-312er
It's a 787 thing, have a read of this: https://www.flightglobal.com/news/artic ... es-385222/
Problem is a lot of 787s also have coloured nacelles. BA, QR, VS, to name a few. The rest with white nacelles seems to be because of the livery codes. 9V-SCA might have white nacelles now since it was a Boeing prototype jet, and it might as well be delivered to SQ using these white nacelles, but the question is whether or not they will retain the white nacelle either for performance or brand design reasons.
If they do retain the white nacelles for performance reasons, then the 780s will be unique among SQ birds, and other airframes might
If its a brand design reason, then either :
a) 9V-SCA will be repainted to have the grey nacelle at some point in the future, or
b) All other SQ airframes will be repainted to look like 9V-SCA with its white nacelles.
