Singapore Airlines plane collapses at Changi Airport
No passengers or crew were on board the SIA Airbus A330-300 when it collapsed Sunday morning, said the airline.
SINGAPORE: The nose gear of a Singapore Airlines (SIA) plane collapsed on Sunday morning (Oct 11) at Changi Airport, confirmed the airline in response to queries from Channel NewsAsia.
There were no passengers or crew on board at the time, said SIA. At the time of the collapse, which happened around 8am, one engineer was on the aircraft but was not hurt, added the airline.
"Singapore Airlines will be co-operating fully with the authorities in their investigations," it said.
Photos sent to Channel NewsAsia on Sunday showed the plane leaning forward on the tarmac of Changi Airport next to an aerobridge, and the photos appear to show that the front door of the plane was torn off.
