Well guys, if it was aircraft sn 33369 9V-SRP, that aircraft is currently doing SIA 965 Jakata to Singapore, descending past 31,775ft at 433kts.
Perhaps all it needed was a wipe with an oily rag.


See details...

It was back in service four weeks ago. And yes, it was 9V-SRP.

8 hours to swap a Trent with a good crew. Easy peasy.


Rest assured, SQ would have a 'good crew' at their home base, as well as spare engines. If not, RR is really good about getting engines moved anywhere in the world at any cost to support their big customers. I've witnessed an AN124 get diverted mid-flight to go fetch a Trent from Texas and deliver it to India for a Delta 777. I think they have a 72-hour contractual commitment to get their power-by-hour planes back into the air.


The Trent is the only 777 engine that can fit into a 747F without taking the fan case off. Saves a LOT of time. It slides right in with almost a full inch to spare.
It's fun to watch.
