The Last B747 Flight of Singapore Airlines SQ748 HKG-SIN

The Last B747 Flight of Singapore Airlines

I have just traveled on the last B747 flight of Singapore Airlines.

Singapore Airlines puts on the best show to over 300 enthusiasts which lots of them traveled around the world to make today's flight.

It was a fantastic yet emotional history making event today. Friendships were re-united without borders during the flight. SIA lives up to the high expectations delivered the usual outstanding service throughout the flight. With a smooth touch down of the Queen of the skies in Singapore ending the event on a high note.

I hope you enjoy the SIA Journey with me.

We've all made in the history book of Singapore Airlines with the smooth touch down of Flight SQ748 in the evening.

For many of the passenger, their love of aviation and commercial aircraft started with B747....This is the aircraft most of us have grew up with....certainly have been a great way to fly!

All the passengers gave a huge round of applause to the Queen of the Sky! (see video)

Thank you Singapore Airlines and B747-400
