Singapore Changi Airport Spotting

Recommended Posts

AY81 is scheduled to arrive at 1610hrs LT from HEL daily, which is quite a good timing for photography! :good:

 

Wow! Late arrival! Most AY's arrive in Asia in the morning. So should be departing HEL around midnight local time then I guess.

Ah well, they at least have good connections on Kangarooroute ;)

Must be full house at BT.

 

Tiger still remains at BT.

Refer to the Hoe Jyh's photo no 2

 

There are three aircraft in the picture you refer to that DO NOT operate from Terminal One ... but they are nevertheless parked there.

 

- Tiger Airways A320 (this operate from the Budget Terminal)

- Singapore Airlines B777-200 (this operate from Terminal Two and Terminal Three)

- Kingfisher A320 (this operates from Terminal Three)

 

Depending on the availability of gates and parking stands available at their respective terminals, aircraft are sometimes parked elsewhere in the airport where parking stands are available. There is no occasion where a Tiger Airways flight is boarded at Terminal One because the Budget Terminal is full.

10/06/11

Weather was a mixed bag. At one time, some passing rain cloud threatened to ruin the whole afternoon for spotting.

 

Nice to see two Shanghai Airline Cargo MD-11F arrived in the afternoon. This is B-2179, the other was B-2178.

Looks like the B737-500s of Garuda Indonesia are now regular visitors ... should photograph it more before these are up-sized to B737-800s.

 

Nice bunch of images Kian Hong.

 

Love the Air Hongkong B744BCF.

PH-MPS (ex 9V-SMF) back in service after a long period in storage. I wonder if she'll get her Martinair colours again?

 

No, she will remain all-white until sold...meanwhile she is operating on behalf of MP when needed...

Singapore Airlines received its 12th A380 (9V-SKL) this morning at Changi Airport ... landed at 0635hrs.

 

This aircraft has only 409 seats - 12 Suites, 86 Business Class seats and 311 Economy Class seats - and will be deployed on the SIN-SYD route on 20 Jun.

17/06 Good weather with some light breeze at the beach. Spotting time... :yahoo:

 

Qatari638 was opb B77L (A7-BBD) instead of the usual B77W.

A7-BBD_WSSS_170611.jpg

 

BG84 S2-AFL was delayed again to 1540. Biman may as well make this its STA. :pardon: This is one of two B737NG opb Biman.

S2-AFL_WSSS_170611.jpg

 

I was hoping that it's still wearing the old scheme ... alas new scheme which is plain boring. OH-LQD

OH-LQD_WSSS_170611.jpg

 

As mentioned by TY, 9V-SPN was out for an air test wearing Transaero colour. Landed at the wrong runway!! :angry:

9V-SPN_WSSS_170611.jpg

 

Asialink Cargo KP004 from Batam opb PK-KRJ 'Kheya'. Looked sensational in such brilliant late afternoon light.

PK-KRJ_WSSS_170611.jpg

 

VN747 VN-A323 from Hanoi arriving at 6pm! I was told this is used to be a vampire flight arriving just after sunset.

VN-A323_WSSS_170611.jpg

 

GLEX 5000 N689WM repositioned from Seletar.

N689WM_WSSS_170611.jpg

 

AirPhil Express RP-C8388 from Cebu arrived 20mins earlier at 1835... unfortunately the setting sun was blocked by some low cloud.

Thanks for viewing. Cheers. :)

Excellent set of pictures !!! :good:

Glad that 9V-SPN was captured ... both in great light and even when shot against the light by Bob, it turned out beautifully. 9V-SPN apparently was re-registered N747NP (probably because it was returned to the bank or some financial institution that now owns it) and will become EI-XLL when it operates for Transaero Airlines.

 

Great shots Kian Hong ... I especially love the Vietnam Airlines shot. This is the only VN flight that arrives at an interesting time for photography - for the rest of the flights, the sun is still rather high. Also Finnair's tail logo almost missing in this beautiful angle.

The past week has been driven by expectations of two Russian types - the more common IL-76 of Volga Dnepr and the less common Ilyushin IL-62M of KAPO Aviakompania (S7/KAO). Both were eventually delayed by a day and two respectively ... but they eventually arrived.

mw-RA-86945-2011-06-19-05Cr-KAPOaviakompania-IL62M-APS.jpg

 

The rest of the week, my biggest regret is not being able to photograph the SIA B747-412 sold to Transaero Airlines ... but at least Kian Hong and Bob shot it.

 

Here's my line-up of more common subjects from the past week.

 

This is Air Hongkong's B744-444BCF returning from its crew-training sortie to Penang.

mw-B-HUS-2011-06-10-04Cr-APS.jpg

 

Over the week, AirAsia gave me plenty to smile about when she sent her specials ... and here's just two of them.

mw-9M-AFK-2011-06-12-08Cr-WOW-APP.jpg

 

mw-9M-AFD-2011-06-15-03Cr-BoRocks-APS.jpg

 

Here's a pair of A340s that are more common these days. Finnair A340 is a daily sighting while Philippine's A340 are quite often despatched to SIN in the morning.

mw-OH-LQE-2011-06-10-02Cr-oneworld-APS.jpg

 

mw-RP-C3431-2011-06-12-01Cr-APP-strobe.jpg

 

And of course, lots more Airbuses of various types and operators...

mw-TC-JNL-2011-06-17-01Cr-Turkish-A333-APS.jpg

mw-VN-A323-2011-06-17-03Cr-VN-A321-APS.jpg

 

And not to be outdone, here are a crop of Boeings ... UPS' B763Fs are often deployed from Shenzhen.

mw-N338UP-2011-06-12-06Cr-APP.jpg

 

mw-PH-CKC-2011-06-12-03Cr-MartinairStck-APP.jpg

 

This B737-700 of China Eastern has additional stickers from its Kunming-based Yunan unit.

mw-B-5255-2011-06-15-03Cr-CEAYunnan-B73G-APS.jpg

 

Love the B772Ers of Saudi Arabian Airlines, but I miss the B747-300s already.

mw-HZ-AKD-2011-06-15-02Cr-Saudi-B772ER-APS.jpg

 

Good old Fedex finally helped me realise my wish, and sent its B757-200F on an air-test.

mw-N948FD-2011-06-15-03Cr-Fedex-B752F-APS.jpg

 

Garuda's retro livery B737-800 are less common these days but when they do come to Singapore, they tend to do a few flights within that day.

mw-PK-GFM-2011-06-15-03Cr-Retro1961-69-APS.jpg

 

Glad to see Qatar's B772LR again ... thought we lost it for good.

mw-A7-BBD-2011-06-17-02Cr-Qatar-B772LR-APS.jpg

 

Two B777s that I was happy to get - Air France B77W in new colours and Korean Air's B772 with the "New Horizons in Korea" livery.

mw-F-GSQD-2011-06-17-04Cr-APS.jpg

 

mw-HL7752-2011-06-17-03Cr-NewHorizons-APS.jpg

 

And I always liked the new livery of Biman Bangladesh Airlines ... looks great on this babyBoeing but would love to see it on a DC-10!

mw-S2-AFL-2011-06-17-03Cr-Biman-B738W-APS.jpg

 

And finally, RSAF's KC-135 has since the weeks before the recent Open House begin to sport a band on the top of its tail fin.
