Default SQ moves A380s and a 777 for scrapping

First time they have done this!

SINGAPORE - Three Singapore Airlines planes were towed on Monday night (Oct 4) from Changi Airport to the Changi Exhibition Centre, where they will be stripped for parts in a process taking two months.

The towing operation, lasting six hours, required road closures along Changi Coast Road and Aviation Park Road.

SIA said on Tuesday that two Airbus A380s, with the aircraft registration numbers 9V-SKH and 9V-SKG, and a Boeing 777-200 aircraft with the registration number 9V-SQJ were moved during the operation.

SKH was meant to operate to Perth in March last year but the flight was cancelled while SKG operate its last flight from NZ same month.

The three aircraft were towed on the night of Oct. 4.
