SBR - you've jumped to the defence of this incident with gusto. Are you an SIA stooge?

Clipped, let's not make it one of those threads, those "stooges" are some of the most professional pilot's in this part of the world.

What proof is there that the brakes weren't applied? Maybe just too late to stop on the hard surface. I would like to know what was said by the flight crew as this rolling backwards took place. Will that conversation be released?

It amazes me how " professional pilots " rejoice at the misfortune of fellow aviators and airline professionals ( I respect tug drivers, artisans, mechanics and LAMEs as fellow aviation professionals ). No wonder pilots are sometimes so detested that everyone else with any chance will want to have a go at us. Tsk, tsk,tsk...sigh

That 'professionalism' attempted to shut down debate - on a rumour network. One has to ask - WHY?

Just curious...

Are SQ passengers paying a premium to be on the A380 service? Would they be compensated for being bumped on to a 747?

Bartender, by all accounts only the right wing gear left the hard, so where do you get eight wheels in the grass from? Picture also shows the four wing gear wheels in the grass, although the two outboard front wheels of the right body gear seem to be on the edge of the tarmac. The A380 has 22 wheels, four on each wing gear, six on each body gear and two nose wheels.

Guys, this is SINGAPORE AIRLINES we are talking about. No SQ aircraft
has EVER run off the runway. The hard packed concrete was just
replaced by hard packed grass and or mud that just happened to
give way underneath the aircraft. God forbid SQ ever acknowledge
any wrongdoing

Load of hogwash and rubbish.

No aircraft in mud,
No cover up whatsoever.

Aircraft most definitely was not stuck in mud.

The first post was misleading to put it mildly which I initially took on board as fact.


The second post should have been a groveling apology but the truth gets a further spin.

Admit it, you have been rumbled

Cool

See here for more pics. Looks like the tug has spilled lots of fluid on the apron and also looks like 8 or 9 wheels on the grass/mud (not that I really care or give a s*&^%)

Exclamation

Give it a break. Some of you are pathetic.

You are arguing about semantics. Get a life!

I am changing the title and closing this thread because it is just so sad to watch a bunch of anoraks arguing over how many wheels were off the paved surface and whether it was grass or mud. Next, we're going to get someone speculating about the vector logistics and detailed examination of gravitational and tidal effects of how this incident occured.

Pathetic!
